Noble Collection Fantastic Beasts Dumbledore Wand

As magic wielding evolved through the generations, wizards and witches began to harness the conducting properties of certain woods to craft wands which allowed for greater accuracy and enhanced power in spellcasting. There becomes a mystical bond between a wand and its magic user that tie to the two together. While most wands tend to be a conduit for a magician's natural connection with the supernatural, others actual bestow extraordinary ability upon its wielder. 

The Elder Wand for example, possessed by Albus Dumbledore in the Harry Potter novels and movies, was considered to be one of the most powerful wands to ever exist. It would allow its user to perform feats of magic that would normally be impossible for even the most skilled wizards and witches. It was one of three magical items called the Deathly Hallows that were allegedly created by Death himself.

According to legend, three brothers defeated Death in a contest of wits. Each of these brothers from the Peverell family were granted a prize for their victory. Antioch Peverell received the Elder Wand, an immensely powerful that was considered unbeatable; Cadmus Peverell was gifted the Resurrection Stone, which could summon the spirits of the dead; and Ignotus Peverell was given the Cloak of Invisibility which granted its wearer to be unperceivable. Anyone who was to possess all three of these Deathly Hallows would become the Master of Death.

There are gaps, of course, and long ones, where it vanishes from view, temporarily lost or hidden; but it always resurfaces. It has certain identifying characteristics that those who are learned in wandlore recognise... Whether it needs to pass by murder, I do not know. Its history is bloody, but that may be simply due to the fact that it is such a desirable object and arouses such passions in wizards. Immensely powerful, dangerous in the wrong hands, and an object of incredible fascination to all of us who study the power of wands. - Garrick Ollivander discussing the Elder Wand.

Harry Potter

While most inhabitants of the wizarding world thought of the Deathly Hallows as simply a spooky story made up by Beedle the Bard to amuse and scare children, it turns out that these magical items were actually very real. In fact, at the time Harry Potter enrolled at Hogwarts School of Witchcraft and Wizardry, the headmaster of the school Albus Dumbledore was unbeknownst to other wielding the Elder Wand. During his battle with Voldemort and the Death Eaters, Potter eventually comes into possession of the Deathly Hallows. He is thus able to master death overcoming Voldemort's curse against him to defeat the evil wizard.

In the J.K. Rowling Fantastic Beast prequel movies to her Harry Potter stories, we are introduced to a middle-aged Dumbledore in the early years of his career at Hogwarts. The casual observer may not notice this, but Albus' wand is distinctly different in Fantastic Beasts from the one in the Harry Potter stories. He hasn't acquired the Elder Wand yet!

But I have! I've gotten my hands on a movie prop replica of the Fantastic Beasts Albus Dumbledore Wand from The Noble Collection. This officially licensed, screen accurate reproduction is 15.5" long and features the same details as the prop utilized by Jude Law in The Crimes of Grindelwald and Secrets of Dumbledore. The Fantastic Beasts Albus Dumbledore Wand includes silver metallic bands with rune carvings that symbolize light winning out over dark and a carved twisted handle that are exact prop reproductions as used in the films.

I have my wand stashed away at the office. Sometimes when I'm thinking things out or practicing for oral arguments, it is used as a fidget stick that is spun and waved to help me focus on working through a problem or to cut through some stress or tension. While my Fantastic Beasts Albus Dumbledore Wand at the moment is tucked in a desk drawer, it would also make a great decoration to display in a man cave, game room, home library or children's bedroom. Fans of J.K. Rowling's wizarding world are sure to be delighted by this or any of the other movie replica wands available from The Noble Collection. 

I personally like this wand because it has the sophisticated look of a more mature wizard more fitting to my current stature. What style of wand would you wield? Is there a specific look or features that appeal to you? The Noble Collection has a wide selection of officially licensed wands to choose from based upon the movie props utilized by actors in the Harry Potter and Fantastic Beasts films produced by Warner Bros Pictures.

Do you think we'll learn more about the Elder Wand in the new Fantastic Beasts 3 film arriving at movie theaters this year? In Fantastic Beasts: The Secrets of Dumbledore, Professor Albus Dumbledore knows the powerful, dark wizard Gellert Grindelwald is moving to seize control of the wizarding world. Unable to stop him alone, he entrusts magizoologist Newt Scamander to lead an intrepid team of wizards and witches. They soon encounter an array of old and new beasts as they clash with Grindelwald's growing legion of followers.

Here is a bit of a spoiler. The Noble Collection has released a movie prop replica of Fantastic Beasts Gellert Grindelwald Wand. It is the Elder Wand as seen in the Harry Potter movies! We are absolutely going to have a wand showdown at some point in the Fantastic Beasts movies. Who else is geeked to see what happens in Fantastic Beasts 3?!
