'Fantastic Beasts: Secrets of Dumbledore' hits the screens in April, drawing Harry Potter fans back to the cinemas. But it seems that if you are a fan of 'Ocean's Eleven', you might also enjoy the movie, and here's why.

Eddie Redmayne, who portrays Newt Scamander in the 'Fantastic Beasts' franchise, appeared on The Tonight Show on Wednesday and apparently tried to seduce a new audience for 'Secrets of Dumbledore'.

So if you're fond of heist movies…

"What I love about this one is it feels like it's sort of a wizarding heist movie," the actor explained. "It's like Ocean's Eleven, set in a Wizarding World."

Wanna know who is George Clooney and who is Brad Pitt here?

"And Jude Law, who plays Dumbledore, is basically George Clooney, and I'm Brad Pitt," Redmayne revealed.

The funniest thing is that Redmayne appears to not be the first person offering this analogy. Let's look back to 2018.

If 'Secrets of Dumbledore' in fact lives up to this pitch, then you might want to consider buying your tickets, as the movie hits big screens on April 15.
