Dumbledore and Grindelwalds complicated relationship will be explored in the new Fantastic Beasts movie – as the franchise comes closer than ever to revealing the wizards homosexuality.
JK Rowling, who wrote the Harry Potter series, and the screenplays for the new additions of Fantastic Beasts, has made no secret of the all-knowing Hogwarts principals sexuality.
However its never yet made it to the pages of the books, or onto the screen. But it may do now.
After fan backlash that the series wasnt going to discuss Dumbledores first love and what it meant to him going forward, the new clip reveals all – thanks to an appearance from old friend, the Mirror of Erised.
The Mirror of Erised was used by Harry in the original instalment, the Philosophers Stone, to see his family once again as he gets used to life as a wizard.
It reveals what the person standing in front of it desires most – and while Harry discovers it, hes warned by Dumbledore that many people have become obsessed with it.
Turns out that he knows from experience, and the new feature briefly reveals that he sees a younger version of himself with the young Grindelwald.
It later merges into the new face of Grindlewald, played by Johnny Depp.
The history of the two collide as we hear someone tell Dumbledore: You and Grindelwald were as close as brothers.
No, replies Dumbledore. We were closer than brothers.
