As one of the most mysterious wizards in the wizarding world, Dumbledore has many secrets.These secrets may be revealed in “Fantastic Beasts 3”.
After fanatical speculation, Warner Bros. finally confirmed the title of “Fantastic Beasts 3” on Wednesday, September 22.
The third “Fantastic Beasts” will be “Fantastic Beasts: The Secrets of Dumbledore” and will be released in theaters on April 15, 2022.
The title contains some interesting hints.
It shows that the third film focuses on Dumbledore played by Jude Law.
As one of the most mysterious wizards in the wizarding world, Albus Dumbledore has many secrets.
These secrets may be revealed in “Fantastic Beasts 3”.
10 Dumbledore’s hidden son
Albus Dumbledore has always been an elusive person.
But after “Fantastic Beasts: The Crimes of Grindelwald” revealed the future headmaster of Hogwarts, this is especially surprising.
The last scene of the film is Credence’s meeting with Grindelwald at his base in Austria.
There, the evil dictator told him that his real name was Aurelius Dumbledore.
The relationship between Credence and Dumbledore has not been disclosed, but it is most likely that he is Dumbledore’s son.
Credence was born in 1901 when his possible father was only 19 years old.
This is about the same time as Dumbledore and Grindelwald allegedly fell in love.
If Dumbledore had an affair with an unidentified woman during this time, then Grindelwald’s motivation for disclosing this information would be clear.
9 Imprisonment of Percival Dumbledore
In the “Harry Potter” series, one of Dumbledore’s greatest secrets is about his father’s fate.
Percival Dumbledore attacked a group of muggles who bullied his daughter, and he was imprisoned in Azkaban.
It is considered one of the most dangerous places in Harry Potter.
Until the death of Percival Dumbledore in 1890.
Albus Dumbledore was ashamed of his father’s crime, and he took the secret to the grave.
The ending of “Fantastic Beasts: The Crimes of Grindelwald” delves into the history of the Dumbledore family.
This upcoming movie may further expand Percival’s crimes.
There may also be cases where Percival beat and abused his daughter, a secret that Albus has always kept.
8 Dumbledore would say Parseltongue
Parseltongue is mainly associated with dark wizards and is a language that few magical talents can speak.
The most famous in the wizarding world would say that Parseltongue might be Harry Potter and Voldemort.
But there may also be another famous wizard who possesses this ability.
In “Harry Potter and the Half-Blood Prince”, Dumbledore leads Harry through the memories of Bob Ogden.
There, they saw the Gunter family talking in a snake-like voice.
Dumbledore seemed to not only understand what they were talking about, but also retelled them to Harry in their language.
This seems to indicate that Dumbledore’s mother tongue is Parseltongue.
This was later confirmed in an interview with Bloomsbury Cultural Circle in 2007.
This makes the third “Fantastic Beasts” officially released as a secret.
7 Dumbledore is gay
Perhaps the most discussed Dumbledore secret among fans is that Albus may be gay.
The “Harry Potter” series of books hinted at the sexual orientation of this powerful wizard.
Although this has not yet been recognized in the “Wizard World” series of movies.
The author has previously confirmed that Dumbledore is gay, but the character has been dating Gellert Grindelwald.
With “Fantastic Beasts 3” revealing Dumbledore’s secrets, the relationship between Albus and Gellert may officially unfold in this movie.
Grindelwald has confirmed that he will star in this movie, and Mads Mikkelsen will succeed Johnny Depp as the leading role.
Therefore, the relationship between these two people is likely to become the focus of this function.
6 Dumbledore’s Boggart
As a creature that appears in the darkest form of human fear, Boggart can reveal a lot of information about a witch or wizard.
Although Dumbledore’s shape has not yet been shown on the screen, J. K. Rowling has previously hinted that Albus’s Boggart may be closer to reality.
It is said that this creature will transform into the corpse of Dumbledore’s sister Ariana Dumbledore.
Ariana is the source of one of the darkest secrets of wizards.
Dumbledore felt he was responsible for Ariana’s death.
Because Albus, his brother Aberforth Dumbledore and Grindelwald were killed in a three-person duel.
Newt has a deep affection for magical creatures, and he might find one of them, Boggart.
Albus’ greatest fear will be exposed.
5 Owe others’ work to yourself
Gilderoy Lockhart may be easier to attribute the achievements of others to himself, but Dumbledore also committed this crime.
Rita Skeeter’s universe book “The Life and Lies of Albus Dumbledore” contains an interview with the wizard Ivor Dillonsby.
He said that before Albus stole his notes and attributed the credit to him, he had identified eight uses for dragon blood.
Dumbledore’s secret betrayal of Ivor’s trust may become an interesting plot point in an upcoming movie.
Newt is an accomplished writer, because plagiarism is a particularly important problem in literature.
He may take a harsh attitude towards those who plagiarize the ideas of others.
Therefore, Albus pretending to be his own by someone else’s work is likely to cause a rift between him and his former students.
4 Dumbledore’s legal ability
Dumbledore may be one of Hogwarts’ most powerful professors, but the wizard is also a skilled lawyer.
In the fifth “Harry Potter and the Order of the Phoenix”, Dumbledore defended Harry in his trial of using minor magic.
During the proceedings, he showed considerable legal knowledge, and he tore the prosecution’s arguments to pieces.
In the “Where are Fantastic Beasts” series of films, the future principal of Hogwarts should be a member of Wizengamot, the Wizarding Court.
So it is strange that Dumbledore did not mention his legal status.
In the last movie, Albus helped Newt violate the travel ban.
As his position in Wizengamot is in danger, his secret legal career may be exposed.
3 Dumbledore’s evil ambition
One of Dumbledore’s most famous achievements was the defeat of Grindelwald.
What the wizarding world may not realize, however, is that these two former friends were once in the same camp.
Before becoming one of the greatest heroes in the wizarding world, Albus had always been keen to cooperate with Grindelwald to rule muggle.
Since then, he has kept this secret.
If the two most powerful characters in “Harry Potter” join forces, it is hard to imagine what the magical world will become.
Fortunately, Albus is currently one of Newt’s most loyal allies in the “Fantastic Beasts” series.
Both wizards are eager to stop Grindelwald’s evil plan.
However, it is possible that Grindelwald will use this dark secret to deal with Albus in the third film, spreading an atmosphere of distrust between him and Newt.
2 Dumbledore’s stealth ability
As the most powerful wizard in the wizarding world, Dumbledore possesses extraordinary skills.
He has a lesser-known ability, that is invisibility.
In the first part of “Harry Potter,” Dumbledore revealed his invisibility to Harry.
In the movie version of “Harry Potter,” Albus’ invisibility is even more mysterious.
As Grindelwald’s followers continue to grow, the third part of “Fantastic Beasts Is There” seems to be a good time for Dumbledore to reveal this hidden ability.
In the battle against wizarding dictators, invisibility can be a valuable asset.
Albus may be able to use these abilities to eavesdrop on old friends’ plans without being discovered.
1 Dumbledore’s army
One of the main plots of the fifth book of “Harry Potter” is about the concept of “Dumbledore’s Army”.
That is, Dumbledore organized a secret student organization to overthrow the Ministry of Magic.
In “Harry Potter and the Order of the Phoenix”, this is a work created by Harry Potter under the name of Dumbledore.
Earlier, Albus did indeed establish his own army of Hogwarts students.
While Grindelwald was in power, Albus decided to use his position as a teacher of art defense at Hogwarts to train students against the wizarding dictator.
“Where are Fantastic Beasts” tells the adventures of Albus’s former student Newt.
“Where are Fantastic Beasts” may explore Dumbledore’s teaching career more and understand his ulterior motives more clearly.
