Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them is getting closer and closer to the movie theaters. The Harry Potter prequel will land in our world on November 18. With its story set 70 years before the appearance of the young wizard Harry Potter, J.K. Rowling who scripted the film, will be able to go deeper into the story that fans of her universe have very little knowledge.

The film will not only show us the adventures of magician Newt Scamander (Eddie Redmayne) in New York, we will also see how the dark magician Gellert Grindelwald is gradually rising to power. And given his relationship with Albus Dumbledore and the confirmation of Dumbledore’s appearance in the sequel of the saga, it is not surprising that the followers of Harry Potter can learn more about the director of Hogwarts.

Rowling got all the attention at a press conference and one of her declarations has hinted that it is possible that the sexuality of the magician is addressed in future deliveries of the saga. “This is a five-part story, so there’s a lot to discover in that relationship,” says the writer about Grindelwald and Dumbledore.

“You’re going to see Dumbledore as a younger, more troublesome man. We’ll see him in that formative period of his life. As for his sexuality, watch out for it,” she adds. Although Dumbledore’s sexuality is not explicit in the Harry Potter books, one of the attendees asked Rowling if the magician had ever fallen in love. The author has responded that she feels he was homosexual.

“Dumbledore fell in love with Grindelwad and that added to his horror when Grindelwald showed himself as he is. As for that, can we forgive Dumbledore because love blinds people? He met someone who was just as bright as him, “ she concludes.

Dumbledore had a troublesome relationship with Grindelwald. In addition, the director David Yates recently confirmed that Johnny Depp, one of the signs of the Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them, will play the dark magician. Which actor will give life to the young version of Dumbledore? After these lines, do not miss the prequel trailer.
