The Harry Potter spinoff franchise, Fantastic Beasts and Where To Find Them, has cast its young Dumbledore. 

Jude Law will fulfill the role of a younger Dumbledore in the upcoming sequels, as has been revealed this morning by Pottermore.

If you’ve been following along with the story of the new films, you’ll be aware that they’re rumoured to center around the Dark Wizard Grindelwald’s (Johnny Depp) rise to power. Those who know their HP lore will know that Grindelwald was good mates with the legendary Albus Dumbledore before he went power crazy, so it’s no surprise that he’s been cast in the upcoming sequels.

Fantastic Beasts and Where To Find Them is out now at JB Hi-Fi.
