Harry Potter fans can rejoice: there is just one week left until the third instalment of the spin-off Fantastic Beasts series releases. And based on the trailers (and the early ticket sales), it’s easy to see that Fantastic Beasts: The Secrets of Dumbledore (the newest adventure in the Wizarding World) is shaping up to be one of the most exciting entries in the franchise.
The first two films (also based on JK Rowling’s work) have been incredibly popular, raking in close to $1.5bn at the box office between them. It is no wonder that the franchise has managed to draw an impressive ensemble cast that includes Oscar-winner Eddie Redmayne, Jude Law, Ezra Miller, Dan Fogler, Alison Sudol, William Nadylam, Callum Turner, Jessica Williams, Victoria Yeates, Poppy Corby-Tuech, Fiona Glascott, Katherine Waterston, Maria Fernanda Cândido, Richard Coyle, Oliver Masucci, Valerie Pachner, and Mads Mikkelsen.
Here’s your chance to win tickets to an early screening of Fantastic Beasts: The Secrets of Dumbledore.

What is Fantastic Beasts: The Secrets of Dumbledore about?
Directed by David Yates from a screenplay written by J.K. Rowling and Steve Kloves, the new film arrives at cinemas on April 15, 2022.
Professor Albus Dumbledore (Jude Law) knows the powerful Dark wizard Gellert Grindelwald (Mads Mikkelsen) is moving to seize control of the wizarding world. Unable to stop him alone, he entrusts Magizoologist Newt Scamander (Eddie Redmayne) to lead an intrepid team of wizards, witches, and one brave Muggle baker on a dangerous mission, where they encounter old and new beasts and clash with Grindelwald’s growing legion of followers. But with the stakes so high, how long can Dumbledore remain on the sidelines?
