The creator of the Wizarding World, J.K. Rowling, revealed in a press conference in New York, which we attended to, that the relationship between Albus Dumbledore and Gellert Grindelwald won’t be focused on in “Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them” and its sequels. On the other hand, many information on Dumbledore were revealed.

“You will see Dumbledore as a younger man and quite a troubled man because he wasn’t always the sage. He was always very clever… but we’ll see him at what I think was the formative period of his life”, explained Rowling. When asked of the character would be publicly gay at the time, the author was mysterious answering a simple “wait and see”.

Directed by David Yates and produced by David Heyman, “Fantastic Beasts” is J.K. Rowling’s debut as a screenwriter and premieres in 3D and IMAX in less than a week!
