Dumbledore’s gay love confession in latest Fantastic Beasts trailer

0

Fantastic Beasts: Dumbledore’s Secrets have released the latest trailer for the movie and it features a gay love confession between Dumbledore and Grindelwald.

On-screen confession has been a long time coming for the much-loved character.

Fans have been eagerly awaiting more details of this love story to be explained in the upcoming third film.

It’s been coming for a long time

It’s been almost 15 years since JK Rowling confirmed that Albus Dumbledore’s much-loved character was gay.

A prominent figure of the tube Harry Potter series, Dumbledore is now a household name around the world.

In 2007, after the release of the last book, JK Rowling confirmed that the character was in fact gay the entire time.

Almost 7 years later, the now-controversial author reiterated the claim by famously responding to a fan on Twitter.

“I just can’t see Dumbledore as gay,” they said.

To which the author replied.

Finally, Dumbledore and Grindelwald confess their love

The discussion about the relationship between the two wizards has been going on for many years.

However, with two of Fantastic Beasts Movie (which focuses on Dumbledore and Grindelwald) posted so far, nothing had been said about their relationship.

Until now.

The latest trailer for Fantastic Beasts: Dumbledore’s Secrets came out this week.

During the 30-second clip, the two lovers have an intense discussion.

Grindelwald, now played by Mads Mikkelsen, implies that Dumbledore promised he would stick by his side.

Dumbledore, played by Jude Law, simply replies “It was because I was in love with you.”

The admission marks the first time in one of the Harry Potter films, books or spin-offs in which the sexuality of the famous headmaster has been openly addressed.

The fans of the series are now in a spin after the release of the trailer.

Many hope this signals that the two characters’ true relationship will be explored in the upcoming film.

Fantastic Beasts: Dumbledore’s Secrets is set to release on April 7, 2022.
