'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.

Eddie Redmayne Gushes About Favorite Part of Fatherhood

Eddie Redmayne suits up for the Canadian premiere of his upcoming film Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them held at Yonge-Dundas Square on Tuesday (November 8) in Toronto, Canada.

The 34-year-old actor was joined by his co-stars Dan Fogler, Katherine Waterston, Alison Sudol, Ezra Miller, director David Yates, and producer David Heyman.

The next day, he and the cast flew to New York City for the Apple Store Soho presentation of Meet the Cast: Fantastic Beasts and Where To Find Them.

Eddie recently opened up about his favorite part about being a dad to his four-month-old daughter Iris.

“It’s in the morning,” Eddie told People. “If Iris has managed to sleep through the night and then you hear a gentle squeak and you go in [her room] and turn on the light … and the massive grin that’s like, ‘It’s a whole new day.’ That’s probably the greatest thing.”

“Hilariously, she’s learned to shout,” he went on. “She doesn’t cry much, but she’s learned to shout. It’s hilarious, she’ll just be sitting there going, ‘Behhhhh!’ Like, what is that noise? From this tiny little thing. She doesn’t sound like a sheep, but it definitely doesn’t sound like a noise that could come from someone so small.”

“The amazing this is that everything that everyone has ever told you – all of the clichés – you become the person starting to spout out the clichés, as if they are the newest thought,” Eddie added.

'Harry Potter' Director David Yates Tapped To Direct 'Fantastic Beasts'

Director David Yates is coming back for more Harry Potter, THR reports.

It was announced earlier today that David, who also directed Order of The Phoenix, Half-Blood Prince, and both Deathly Hallows films, has been tapped to direct the upcoming Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them,

With J.K. Rowling writing the script, the flick is set 70 years prior to the Harry Potter films and centers on Newton Artemis Fido Scamander, who wrote a reference guide to magical beasts, and the movies will follow his adventures after he is commissioned to write the tome.

The flick is set to debut November 18, 2016 — and if you’re at The Wizarding World of Harry Potter, we know where to find them.
