When you go to see the latest Fantastic Beasts movie, you expect amazing CGI, that amazing and wonderful world of Harry Potter and more.
What we didn’t expect to see was the beautiful gay love story centered around Dumbledore and Grindelwald.
Without spoiling this incredible film for you, know that the love between the two men is recognized from the start and it continues as a main theme throughout this incredible adventure.
The subject of Dumbledore’s sexuality was broached by the books’ author JK Rowling in 2007 when she confirmed that he was indeed gay and so it has come up many times over the years, but this movie really tackles it head-on.
Jude’s Law is exceptional as Dumbledore and beautifully portrays the grief he has as he has to go against the man he loves. Like always, Eddie Redmayne gives us a pitch-perfect performance as the ever-blushing magizoologist Newt Scamander.
With some enjoyable twists and groundbreaking CGI, this film will delight any true Harry Potter fan and even wink at the books as Easter eggs for those who know their butterbeer from their gillyweed.
Fantastic Beasts: Dumbledore’s Secrets is in theaters now.
