On the occasion of the arrival of Dumbledore’s Secrets on HBO Max.
Just 30 days after their theatrical release, Warner Bros productions can be streamed on HBO Max in the United States and Fantastic Beasts 3 is no exception to the rule. To make the public want to discover this sequel, still directed by David Yates from a script by JK Rowling and Steve Kloves, the studio has posted its opening scene online (as it had been done to promote Matrix Resurrectionsfor example).
A 10-minute video that begins with the long-awaited reunion between Albus Dumbledore (Jude Law) and Gellert Grindelwald (now played by Mads Mikkelsen). A sequence teased during the promotion of the film, where the future director of Hogwarts finally clearly expresses his feelings towards his childhood friend, who has become a dangerous wizard. We then find the hero of this new saga, Norbert Scamander (Eddie Redmayne), trapped by Credence (Ezra Miller) with one of his magical creatures. The action starts… and suddenly stops. To see the rest, go to French cinemas, where the blockbuster is still showing. Otherwise, we will have to wait until its release on VOD, DVD and blu-ray, at the end of August. Because in France, the media chronology is not the same as in the United States, and the HBO Max platform is not (yet) offered here.
