The Hogwarts professor will appear in the next film.
It's been largely speculated that Albus Dumbledore would make an appearance in the 'Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them' film series, given how he is mentioned as Newt Scamander's teacher in the trailer, and now those rumours have been confirmed. So who will play him?
'Fantastic Beasts' sequel to re-introduce Albus Dumbledore

The time is drawing ever closer to the release of Fantastic Beasts And Where to Find, within a short number of days we will finally be able to get a glimpse into the life of a character that author J.K. Rowling so lovingly developed. Even when Newt Scamander was a young Hogwarts student, he always loved the wilder side of magic. If there was a wild beast to nurture, Newt would be the enthusiastic child wanting to find out more.
When he grew up, he became an acclaimed magizoologist and formed his own unique and rather deadly collection of beasts. Any endangered species, Newt would willingly look after and add to his endless list of beasts, all with their own unique powers. After a busy trip collecting more creatures, Newt visits the city of New York and arrives to find that tensions between the wizarding community and a group of powerful muggles (known as the Second Salemers) are battling one another; the Second Salemers goal is to eradicate the wizarding community.
When some of Newt's beasts are accidentally released, he is quickly called to answer questions from the Director of Magical Security at MACUSA (Magical Congress of the United States of America) who presumes Newt is guilty of working with wizard Gellert Grindelwald. The director, Percival Graves, believes that Newt has purposefully released the beasts to expose magic kind in order to stir up tension between and further the war between the muggles (No-Maj) and the wizarding world.
Newt Scamander is a wizard who's always had an interest in monsters and wild, unworldly creatures. Newt inspects as many different species of Beast that he can and keeps some of the rarest ones in order to preserve them and keep them from harm's way whilst also ensuring they themselves don't cause any of the chaos they could so easily cause.
It's 1926 and the wizarding community is under threat. Whilst most muggles (No Maj's) don't have any idea that wizards and witches actually exist, a small yet powerful few are all too aware of them and their powers.
The New Salem Philanthropic Society is headed by a tough woman named Mary Lou Barebone who wants to make sure that all wizarding kind is exterminated.
The kiss happened when Skarsgard’s Tarzan was unconscious, but it left test audiences ‘perplexed’.
A scene in which Christoph Waltz’s character Rom kisses Alexander Skarsgard in The Legend of Tarzan was removed from the final film for being “too clever”, according to director David Yates. Speaking to The Times Yates explained that test audiences were left “perplexed” by the kiss, which happened when Tarzan was unconscious.
The Legend of Tarzan originally featured a kiss between Alexander Skarsgard and Christoph Waltz.
Yates explained that as part of the film’s effort not to “fall into the trap of what Tarzan represented to some people”, the original cut included a scene where Belgian soldier Rom (played by Christoph Waltz) kisses Tarzan.
When Lord John and Lady Greystoke found themselves stranded in strange jungle, their only instinct was to survive. Lord Greystoke built a shelter in the trees and made a home for him, his wife and his new born son, John Greystoke Jr..

Long before the time of Harry Potter, wizards and witches still lived their lives in the muggle world as well as the wizarding world that was still governed by the ministry of magic.
Even though 'he who shall not be named' wasn't causing chaos for the wizards, they still had problems of their own. Largely these were monsters and beasts that come from far and distant lands. Newt Scamander is one particular wizard who is fascinated by these creators and when a selection of these terrible beasts are mistakenly released into the muggle world, Newt finds himself suddenly thrown into untrodden territory.
Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them was originally written as a book by JK Rowling. The book studies 83 of these mystical creators all of which Newt has discovered.
