The highly anticipated “Fantastic Beasts 3” by Harry Potter fans has recently been announced as “Fantastic Beasts: The Secrets of Dumbledore”.
The movie will be released on April 15, 2022. We can see it in six months!
The title of the movie specifically mentions the name “Dumbledore”.
But in the “Fantastic Beasts” series, Albus Dumbledore is not the only person with the surname Dumbledore.
So, who is “Dumbledore” in the title? What will his “secret” be?
Obviously, when we saw the title, the first thing we thought of was Albus Dumbledore played by Jude Law.
As early as in the “Harry Potter” series, Principal Dumbledore was a person who was good at keeping secrets.
Even if he doesn’t know what big plan is brewing in his heart, his supporters will still trust him without hesitation.
Even people like Severus Snape who “dance on the tip of a knife” all the time were extremely loyal to him.
But when Albus Dumbledore died, many of his secrets were also revealed.
Facing these earth-shattering secrets, we can’t help but wonder, is he still the kind-hearted old principal we knew before?
If the “Dumbledore” in the title refers to Albus, what is his secret?
We know that his friendship with Grindelwald (more precisely, their relationship) is rarely known in the wizarding world.
It wasn’t until Rita Skeeter published the book “The Life and Lies of Albus Dumbledore” in 1997, to disclose their relationship to the entire wizarding world.
In addition, in the last “Fantastic Beasts: The Crimes of Grindelwald”, there are still many puzzles that have not been solved.
For example, the blood alliance contract. This seems to have prevented Albus from confronting Grindelwald head-on.
Although the “Blood Alliance” is not as famous as the “Unbreakable Oath”, it must contain some special magic that even the most powerful wizard Albus Dumbledore dare not easily break.
So, what will be the result of violating the blood alliance?
What price does Albus have to pay to break it?
Will we see the “answer” in “The Secrets of Dumbledore”?
Of course, besides his relationship with Grindelwald, Albus has other hidden secrets.
For example, we still don’t know the answer to the question Grindelwald asked Newt when he impersonated Percival Graves in the first movie: “Now what makes Albus Dumbledore so fond of you?”
Albus’s love for Newt Scamander is naturally different from his love for Grindelwald.
But why did Albus choose Newt to face Grindelwald on his own behalf, why he cares about Newt everywhere, why he trusts Newt so much, etc.
This is probably Dumbledore’s other secret.
There is also the complicated relationship between Albus and his family.
We know from the “Harry Potter” novel that he has a very distant relationship with his brother Aberforth.
And his sister Ariana’s accidental death has always been his demon.
If this “secret” has something to do with Ariana, then, is she the “Obscurial” that everyone has always speculated?
How is she related to another “Obscurial” Credence Barebone?
At the end of the last “Fantastic Beasts”, Credence Barebone’s real name was revealed, namely Aurelius Dumbledore.
The names of the three Dumbledore brothers and sisters all start with A (Albus, Aberforth, Ariana).
Will Aurelius, who also starts with A, be the fourth child of Dumbledore’s family?
As the terrible Obscurial, Credence Barebone’s strength during the runaway, even Grindelwald would be afraid of.
Therefore, Credence may also be “Dumbledore” in the title.
We have been wondering before, how did Albus defeat Grindelwald, who holds the old wand in that century duel?
Could Credence be the “secret weapon” that finally defeated Grindelwald?
I have to say that whether it is Albus·Dumbledore or Aurelius Dumbledore, they have too many “puzzles” that need to be solved.
Of these “secrets”, which one do you most want to know?
