Jude Law has revealed more information about the upcoming Fantastic Beasts movie, Fantastic Beasts: The Crimes of Grindelwald.
The actor is taking on the role of a young Albus Dumbledore for the second film in the franchise, where his character teams up with Newt Scamander (Eddie Redmayne) to take down the dark wizard Gellert Grindelwald.
But anyone hoping to see some epic scenes between Jude and Grindelwald actor Johnny Depp may be disappointed.
Speaking to Entertainment Weekly, Jude said: “I don’t actually have any scenes with Johnny. As I said before, this is only Part 2 of a longer story.
“I’ve always admired him from afar, but we don’t know each other, and I’ve not yet met him on this.
“In many ways that suits the relationship as it’s been many years since they’ve seen each other. So there’s complexity in that that’s fun to mine. Again, the past will reveal itself.”
The actor also revealed that Dumbledore’s sexuality won’t feature in the film, after director David Yates previously said that the character won’t be “explicitly gay”.
“Jo Rowling revealed some years back that Dumbledore was gay. That was a question I actually asked Jo and she said, yes, he’s gay. But as with humans, your sexuality doesn’t necessarily define you; he’s multifaceted,” Jude said.
“I suppose the question is, ‘How is Dumbledore’s sexuality depicted in this film?’ What you’ve got to remember this is only the second Fantastic Beasts film in a series and what’s brilliant about Jo’s writing is how she reveals her characters, peels them to the heart over time.
“You’re just getting to know Albus in this film, and there’s obviously a lot more to come.
“We learn a little about his past in the beginning of this film, and characters and their relationships will unfold naturally which I’m excited to reveal. But we’re not going to reveal everything all at once.”
Fantastic Beasts: The Crimes of Grindelwald opens in cinemas on November 16.
