  • David Yates and David Heyman Confirm Dumbledore’s Return in the Fantastic Beasts Sequel

David Yates and David Heyman confirm the return of beloved character Dumbledore in the sequel of Fantastic Beasts .

We were all excited when J.K. Rowling announced that there were going to be five movies for the current Fantastic Beasts franchise featuring Eddie Redmayne as the famous magizoologist, Newt Scamander.

The first part features Newt’s visit to United States of America in the 1920s when the wizarding world of the U.S. faces dark times. The cast has talked about the excitement of joining the greatly established fandom of Harry Potter and how they were warmly welcomed.

It might be partly because of Rowling’s involvement and also the dream team of Warner Bros. and the producer of the Harry Potter franchise David Heyman and director David Yates who directed five out of eight movies of the franchise.

Knowing that the latest franchise is in safe hands, the Potter fandom is looking forward to what this prequel to the Harry Potter world has in store for them.

One of the best things about a prequel is the speculation of which characters that are well known to us will appear. We were all excited when Colin Farrell’s Percival Graves mentioned Dumbledore’s name in the trailer for the first Fantastic Beasts.

What has the fans more excited now as Heyman and Yates have confirmed that Dumbledore will indeed be appearing as a character in the sequel of Fantastic Beasts.

They revealed that the sequels will be moving towards the rise of Gellert Grindlewald, the Dark wizard at large before Lord Voldemort. We have had a preview of Dumbledore and Grindlewald’s enmity in the Harry Potter series.

We know that the two powerful wizards were friends before Dumbledore was pulled away by his family obligations and Grindlewald went on to dominate the wizarding world.

We know that Dumbledore ultimately defeated his nemesis with whom he had been in the cahoots once to find the Deathly Hallows. What was revealed later by Rowling was that Dumbledore was gay and he might have been involved in a romantic relationship with Grindlewald.

Seeming like a thing of the past, the past is now coming back. Heyman and Yates confirmed that the latest confirmed cast member Johnny Depp was actually set to play the evil Grindlewald. They are yet to cast a younger Dumbledore.

Jared Harris, Richard Harris’ son, has emerged as a fan favorite to play the iconic role. Richard Harris was the original Dumbledore and passed away after Chamber of Secrets.

He was replaced by Michael Gambon. Yates and Heyman said that they were open to options as they wanted to cast a younger version of Dumbledore.

They also mentioned that the upcoming movies in the franchise were going to be in Europe. They revealed that the sequel will happen partly in Paris before moving to the UK. Newt will delve into darker themes. They admitted that there have been questions about children being drawn to the new franchise.

They said that they have always noted that Rowling is not afraid to delve into darker themes for children. They noted that the theme for the upcoming movies will be along the lines of credence rather than modesty.

With so many revelations, we cannot wait for the next movie to come already but the first part of the movie is due to release in the next week.
