“Secrets of Dumbledore” Locations to Include Bhutan and China
When the Fantastic Beasts film series continues this coming April with Fantastic Beasts: The Secrets of Dumbledore, we will see characters visiting a host of new destinations. According to a report from Deadline yesterday, October 7, these locations will include “such far-flung locales as Bhutan, Germany, the [United States], the [United Kingdom,] and China.”
This information comes from Warner Bros.’ CineEurope screening of some footage from behind the scenes of the upcoming film, including what Deadline describes as “a quick glimpse of Mads Mikkelsen as Gellert Grindelwald.” The film also appears to be returning to Hogwarts at some point, leaving us to wonder how some of the new locations are tied to the plot. What we know so far includes the casting of Oliver Masucci as the Head of the International Confederation of Wizards, one possible link to the many countries visited.
Interestingly, we don’t have any canonical information about Bhutan as it exists within the franchise, but it is a Himalayan country that shares its borders with China and India. Previous reports have indicated that Brazil will be featured in the film, although a report from La Gazette du Sorcier suggests that the news about Bhutan could mean that Secrets of Dumbledore won’t be taking audiences to Brazil after all.
What do you think of the latest update? Who do you think will be going on this journey around the world, and what might they find there? How do you think all these countries will end up linked? We’d love to hear what you hope to see in Secrets of Dumbledore in the comments below!
