Cinema Royale: Talking ‘Fantastic Beasts: The Secrets Of Dumbledore’

It’s time to journey back to the Wizarding World! But will Fantastic Beasts: The Secrets of Dumbledore be a worthy adventure after, let’s face it, a pretty terrible predecessor? Has the magic returned? Is Mads Mikkelsen here to stay as the villainous Grindelwald? And how big are these secrets, anyway?

Joining me on the show this week is fellow Punch Drunk Critic, Cortland Jacoby, who like me hated The Crimes of Grindelwald and had very low expectations for The Secrets of Dumbledore.

All of this and more, of course! You can subscribe to Cinema Royale wherever you get your podcasts, and be sure to do the same on Youtube! Follow the Punch Drunk Critics and Cinema Royale!
