On an interview to Entertainment Weekly, the director [David Yates] revealed that Albus Dumbledore’s homosexuality won’t be explicitly approached in Fantastic Beasts: Crimes of Grindelwald.

“Not explicitly. I think 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. Dumbledore is a maverick and a rebel and he’s an inspiring teacher at Hogwarts. 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.”

Written by [J.K. Rowling] and directed by [David Yates], the movie is set on New York, London and Paris and has references to the Harry Potter series. A few months after being captures, Gellert Grindewald dramatically escapes from MACUSA and start gathering followers to his wizard supremacy cause. With the help of the magizoologist Newt Scamander, the only one that can stop him is Albus Dumbledore, a Transfiguration teacher at Hogwarts. In a much darker era of the Wizarding World, however, the characters will face dangers capable of testing their loyalties. The movie hits the theaters on November 16th.
