Keep visiting WizardingWorld.com or register with us and remember to opt-in to our newsletter for more updates on the Fantastic Beasts films – including the publication of the screenplay of Fantastic Beasts: The Secrets of Dumbledore in the English language by Little, Brown (U.K.), Scholastic (U.S.) and Pottermore Publishing (ebook) which will be published on 19 July 2022. More languages will also follow on that date.
This release date of July 19 means that the screenplay for Secrets of Dumbledore will not be published until well after the film gets its cinematic release next month. Previously, the screenplays of Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them and Fantastic Beasts: The Crimes of Grindelwald were released when the films themselves were released in theaters. At this time, it is unclear why the Secrets of Dumbledore screenplay will not be released within a similar time frame.
Promotional materials for Secrets of Dumbledore are continuing to be released, however, including posters for the 4DX and ScreenX versions of the film. You can view these posters below from CBR.
Finally, if a poster of Pickett isn’t adorable enough, actors Eddie Redmayne (Newt Scamander) and Jude Law (Albus Dumbledore) surprised some young fundraisers for Comic Relief’s Red Nose Day celebrations at Warner Bros. Studio Tour London – The Making of Harry Potter. The United Kingdom-based Twitter account for the Fantastic Beasts series shared a clip of the actors’ visit.

UPDATE (6:40 p.m. ET):
Even more posters for Secrets of Dumbledore have been released by the film’s official Facebook and Twitter accounts, including some featuring similar art to the above posters. Interestingly, Pickett appears blurred to a greater degree than in the ScreenX poster, while the poster featuring Dumbledore is nearly identical. Two additional posters feature the characters Newt Scamander and Teddy the Niffler, respectively.
Magical moments are just around the corner. ✨ Fantastic Beasts: The Secrets of Dumbledore only in theaters April 15. #SecretsOfDumbledore pic.twitter.com/0pv0F6fbD4
