Law, Dumbledore and Grindelwald between passion and conflict – Cinema

(ANSA) – ROME, APRIL 04 – Both the promise to offer answers to many questions about Albus Dumbledore (played Jude Law) and his past love affair with the ‘villain’ magician Gellert Grindelwald, and the exclusion from the saga of Johnny Depp (after the accusations of violence addressed to him by his ex-wife Amber Heard, which the actor denies) replaced as the interpreter of Grindelwald by Mads Mikkelsen, makes the release of Fantastic Beasts – Dumbledore’s secrets particularly awaited, in theaters from 13 April with Warner Bros, starring Eddie Redmayne as magizoologist Newt Scamander, in a cast that includes, among others, Ezra Miller, Dan Fogler, Alison Sudol, William Nadylam, Callum Turner, Jessica Williams, Victoria Yeates. It is the third chapter directed by David Yates, of the prequel to the Harry Potter saga created directly for the big screen by JK Rowling.
“Dumbledore here is a man who seeks his way, and confronts his demons – explains Jude Law in the streaming press conference -. He faces himself, his past, his sense of guilt. I especially love his liveliness. , the humor and the trust he has in people. Even in figures like Draco or Tom Riddle at first he sees the good or the potential for good. ” In the film Dumbledore returns to mixed feelings towards Grindelwald (Mikkelsen) in opposing the powerful wizard, determined to dominate the wizarding world and wage a war against the Muggles. A ‘mission’ for which Dumbledore forms a ‘team’ together with the trusted magizoologist Newt among others. “It was important to focus on the story of how Albus and Gellert met – underlines Law -. Dumbledore as a young man was already exceptionally brilliant and for this reason perhaps he isolated himself from others, until he met someone equally brilliant who trusted him. . Then, as sometimes happens in relationships, we realize that we are on different paths but this has not canceled the attraction, even the carnal one they feel “.
Confirms the Danish actor: “Beyond the dimension of magic, we wanted both to be real people struggling with real emotions, including the self-disappointment you feel when a relationship ends”. (HANDLE).
