“Secrets of Dumbledore” Promotions Continue with Poppy Corby-Tuech Interview, Film Clip, and More

The third film in the Fantastic Beasts series, Fantastic Beasts: The Secrets of Dumbledore, will be released next month, and we have plenty of exciting new updates to share about it. Following the news that MinaLima will be exhibiting some new art prints from the Fantastic Beasts series, we now have confirmation that Secrets of Dumbledore will be set in the 1930s.

According to a photo published by the Italian fansite Portus on Twitter, one of the art prints is dated for 1932. This moves the timeline for the third film forward by a few years from the events of Fantastic Beasts: The Crimes of Grindelwald, which is set in 1927.



Meanwhile, Poppy Corby-Tuech, who will be reprising her role as Vinda Rosier, is featured in a new interview with Square Mile. In that interview, she discusses Secrets of Dumbledore, including additional confirmation that the film is set in the 1930s.

I’m really excited to be returning to the Fantastic Beasts world with the third instalment of the franchise, [Fantastic Beasts:] The Secrets of Dumbledore. It’s got all the magic and the adventure of the wizarding world with some familiar faces and places (and beasts!), but we’re also telling a story, which at its heart is incredibly human.

We shot the entire film during the height of the UK pandemic, which was an astounding feat. Our amazing crew re[-]created the 1930s with the most beautiful sets and costumes, which blew my mind time and time again. I can’t wait for people to see it.

You can read the full interview and view photos from the accompanying photo shoot on Square Mile‘s website.

Beyond the confirmation of the 1930s time jump, IGN has released an exclusive clip from behind the scenes of Secrets of Dumbledore, embedded below. It includes new footage from various points in the film plus commentary from members of the cast and crew.
