      Post the screening, first reviews of the film have declared it the best film of the Fantastic Beasts franchise. Digital Spy's Editor Ian Sandwell wrote, "#FantasticBeastsTheSecretsOfDumbledore is an improvement on the sequel, even if it only fleetingly recaptures the magic. Mads Mikkelsen is a huge upgrade, but the MVP is Jessica Williams's Lally. It's just overstuffed and unsure if it's a Beasts film or a Harry Potter film."

      Xandra Harbet of Looper praised The Secrets of Dumbledore as "a magical menagerie of homages to the Potter films." Collider contributor Peri Nemiroff said the film is a "big bounce back" for the franchise. "Back to enjoying the group dynamic & caring about the main mission. A lil thin here & there but a FAR more engaging ride than the last. Dan Fogler continues to be a favorite ... and the Niffler," she added.

      YouTube reviewer Dave Lee credited the sequel with "great character work, fun adventure, and amazing duels". Take a look at more reactions on Twitter:

      The premiere was hosted by Tom Felton, who played the role of Draco Malfoy in the Harry Potter film series alongside Yinka Bokinni. Apart from the cast, Harry Potter author JK Rowling also made a special appearance.

      Notably, the film has been making headlines for several releases including Johnny Depp's replacement, and JK Rowling being called out for her allegedly anti-Trans comments. Recently, Ezra Miller, who essays Credence Barebone, was recently arrested for 'yelling obscenities' in a Hawaiian town of Hilo. Ezra who has been released after paying a bond of $500, was missing from the event.

      Fantastic Beasts: The Secrets of Dumbledore is all set to release on April 8, 2022, in India.
