The stupid magician Gellert Grindelwald has escaped, and even worse, he is gathering a group of devoted followers who do not suspect their true intentions: raise mages above non-magical creatures. Trying to foil Grindelwald's plans, Albus Dumbledore recruits his former student, Newt Scamander, who agrees to help him without knowing the dangers that await him. In a magical world that is increasingly divided, even among close friends and family, Newt and his teammates will have to face tough challenges that will test their loyalty.
This film is embedded in the universe Harry Potter This is a continuation Fantastic animals and where to find them (2016) and again have their own scenario J.K. Rowling, the author of this saga about books, as well as the producer of the film.
Jude Law in his youth he devotes himself to the mythical wizard Dumbledore & # 39; a. In Los Angeles, the actor welcomed us with Zoë Kravitz (the daughter of singer Lenny Kravitz) and Callum Turner, young performers who also join the saga.
-Jude played Dumbledore & a; a symbolic character from the Potter saga. What was your inspiration? Other films, a book, just a script?
– A little bit of everything. There are some great parts of the book that appear in detail in Potter's films, so I came back to them. Two performances by two great actors in the Potter movie, which I saw again. Then an afternoon with J. K. Rowling, who gave me his vision and details. And they gave me the freedom to create it myself. You also have a script to which you try to revive your life.
-Callum interprets Newt's brother … A great figure. What was your reaction when your agent called you to this character?
– I was very excited about participating in this universe, which I am a big fan of. But as we said, once you're inside, you're trying to get to the ground, find the truth right now because it's my job in a wide range.
-Zoë, what can you say about Summer Bellatrix, your character, what kind of woman is this?
"She's a complicated woman who comes from a complicated past, I think she has a lot of problems with her own courage, her father never loved her, and she endured it for a long time. She did something she regretted all her life, and it seems to me that she carries that sense of burden. I think that at the end of the movie she finally released her and she freed herself from it.
Law: – What I loved in your performance is the feeling of a person who has such a heavy name. People always assume that if you have a name or you're famous because of blah, blah, your life is blessed. But most people I know and suffer because of it.
-Jude, what is the relationship between Dumbledore & em and Grindenwald?
– I think the relationship defines them, not sexuality, but a relationship. And this is suggested in the film, it was an intense, intimate, complicated and toxic relationship in its past. He started at the age of 20 and is now 40 and he still has it and obsessively. He talks a lot about how important it was, but also about how destructive he was in some way. And I hope it looks better in the next sagas.
