'Fantastic Beasts' Sequel Won't Explore Dumbledore's Sexuality

Fantastic Beasts: The Crimes of Grindewald gives a first look at a young Dumbledore, but his sexuality won’t be a part of the storyline.

Director David Yates recently spoke about Dumbledore and his relationship with Grindewald.

“Not explicitly,” he told EW about the film exploring his sexuality. “But I think all the fans are aware of that. He had a very intense relationship with Grindelwald when they were young men. They fell in love with each other’s ideas, and ideology and each other.”

Harry Potter author JK Rowling revealed the news of the wizard’s sexuality back in 2007.

“He’s a maverick and a rebel and he’s an inspiring teacher at Hogwarts,” David dished about Dumbledore, played by Jude Law. “He’s witty and has a bit of edge. He’s not this elder statesman. He’s a really kinetic guy. And opposite Johnny Depp as Grindelwald, they make an incredible pairing.”

There will be three more movies in the Fantastic Beasts series, so the exploration of Dumbledore’s sexuality isn’t out of the question just yet.
