Hold on to your hats, Harry Potter fans, because the recently released cast photo from the Fantastic Beasts sequel has the internet going absolutely nuts. It seems that fans have a lot of feelings about Jude Law as young, hot Dumbledore, and it's safe to say that you will too once you get a look at him. The teaser from the second film, Fantastic Beasts: The Crimes of Grindelwald, features Albus Dumbledore in a way that fans could have never possibly imagined as Law's handsomely sharp features make it quite hard to concentrate on much else.
In addition to the captivating photo, a recent unveiling of details from the forthcoming project provided by Warner Bros. also reveal the official title of the highly-anticipated sequel as well as a few other tidbits about the film that fans are sure to love. Fantastic Beasts: The Crimes of Grindelwald will be released in theaters On Nov. 16, 2018 — exactly a year from when the news was released. The announcement means that the countdown is officially on for fans of J.K. Rowling's Wizarding World franchise who have been patiently awaiting the follow-up to 2016's Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them.
Naturally, it took fans no time at all to get into Law's portrayal of Dumbledore as many took to Twitter to swoon over the 44-year-old actor's feature in the upcoming film.

Along with Law, the total cast photo notably features Dumbledore's one time pal-turned-archenemy Gellert Grindelwald — a role which will, controversially, be reprised by Johnny Depp. It seems that the two will likely face-off against one another in the film, as Dumbledore attempts to put an end to his former friends's reign of terror. Check out the official synopsis:
“At the end of the first film, the powerful Dark wizard Gellert Grindelwald (Depp) was captured by MACUSA (Magical Congress of the United States of America), with the help of Newt Scamander (Redmayne). But, making good on his threat, Grindelwald escaped custody and has set about gathering followers, most unsuspecting of his true agenda: to raise pure-blood wizards up to rule over all non-magical beings. In an effort to thwart Grindelwald’s plans, Albus Dumbledore (Law) enlists his former student Newt Scamander, who agrees to help, unaware of the dangers that lie ahead. Lines are drawn as love and loyalty are tested, even among the truest friends and family, in an increasingly divided wizarding world.”
As details about Fantastic Beasts: The Crimes of Grindelwald come to light, Jude Law has quickly become quite the hot topic amongst fans of the franchise. And, with just one good look at the photo, it's easy to see why.
