The runtime for the upcoming Wizarding World film, Fantastic Beasts: The Secrets Of Dumbledore has been revealed.
It’s been a long road to get to The Secrets Of Dumbledore. The last film in the franchise, Fantastic Beasts: The Crimes Of Grindelwald wasn’t well-received by critics and failed to wow at the box office. After a four-year hiatus, the next installment is set to debut next month and will be the longest installment yet.
Recently the British Board for Film Classification revealed that The Secrets Of Dumbledore would be 142 minutes long, making it the longest installment in the Fantastic Beasts franchise. The first film, Fantastic Beasts and Where To Find Them ran for 133 minutes with Crimes of Grindelwald running for 134 minutes. Now, this new movie looks to keep the ride going for just a little bit longer with a slightly longer runtime.
Here is the synopsis for the upcoming film:
Professor Albus Dumbledore (Jude Law) knows the powerful Dark wizard Gellert Grindelwald (Mads Mikkelsen) is moving to seize control of the wizarding world. Unable to stop him alone, he entrusts Magizoologist Newt Scamander (Eddie Redmayne) to lead an intrepid team of wizards, witches and one brave Muggle baker on a dangerous mission, where they encounter old and new beasts and clash with Grindelwald’s growing legion of followers. But with the stakes so high, how long can Dumbledore remain on the sidelines?
Directed by David Yates from a screenplay written by J.K. Rowling and Steve Kloves, the film stars Eddie Redmayne, Katherine Waterston, Dan Fogler, Alison Sudol, Ezra Miller, Callum Turner, William Nadylam, Poppy Corby-Tuech, Jessica Williams, Jude Law, and Mads Mikkelsen.
The new film will hit theaters on April 15, 2022. Stay tuned for all the latest news surrounding the upcoming film and be sure to subscribe to Heroic Hollywood’s YouTube channel for more original video content.
