In a new addition to Potterverse, Fantastic beasts: Grindelwald's crimes, since November 16, fans J.K. Rovling's magical world will finally have the opportunity to watch the young version of Albus Dumbledore (Jude Lav) in action. Of course, as the whole film revolves around the bad guy of the series, Gellert Grindelvald (Johnny Depp), Grindelvald and Dumbledore's relationship one of the most important films. Dumbledore and Grindelwald not only represent powerful wizards on the opposite sides of the good and the evil scale, but also have a complicated background that others Fantastic Beasts movie shows … kind. Major fronts in front.
In Crimes of Grindelwald, Dumbledore acts as an obscene mentor for the film's protagonist, Nevt Scamander (Eddie Redmaine). After Dumbledore learned that Grindelwald escaped from prison and fled to Paris, the future director of Hogwarts advised Nevt to go to Paris so that a magician could find Credence (Ezra Miller) before Grindelwald. As for why Dumbledore can not go to Paris, a powerful wizard explains that it is because of Grindelwald. This confusing discovery is later explained, when in Hogwarts the uncertainty of the Ministry of Magic appears in order to reprimand Dumbledore for sending Nevt.
When visiting Hogwarts, ministry officials tell Dumbledore to leave and stop Grindelwald, but Dumbledore refuses to fight him. One of the funs begins to remember young Dumbledore and Grindelwald, facing each other. They seem to be able to lean on their embrace, but then young men turn into their adult qualities, and they look at each other. When they say they are "like brothers", Dumbledore tells the group they are really closer to that.
Later in the film, Dumbledore looks at the Mirror of Erised, which is exciting in itself, but what he sees is even more interesting. The mirror shows Dumbledore and Grindelwald as teenagers, two boys break their hands, and then use charm to combine their blood and split in half so that each person can carry it in the pendant. Earlier in the film, when Grindelwald escaped from custody, he seems to be using the thing.
At the end of the film, She sees Dumbledore's charm combined with blood and identifies him as a pact of blood. "Swear not to fight each other," says Nevt. This explains the earlier scene from the film in which Grindelwald tells Credence that he is the only one who can kill Dumbledore. It is not that Grindelwald has no skill or ability to do it, but he would probably die if he killed Dumbledore for the pact of blood. Like GK It points out that the Blood Pact is an unknown term in Potterware, but it sounds like an irrevocable covenant that would kill any wizard who defies it.
In the end, Nut asks Dumbledore whether he can fight Grindelwald if he destroys the charm of the pact of blood, and Dumbledore reacts: "Maybe." It is clear that the end is on Fantastic Beasts the five-part series will end with the turn of the blood pact, as Pottermore claims that Albus Dumbledore defeated Grindelwald in 1945. They do not meet this movie at all.
Not only will the lack of interaction between Dumbledore and Grindelwald disappoint the audience, but also the fact that the film does not explicitly show Grindelwald and Dumbledore as former mistresses. In 2007, J.K. Rovling told the audience in New York that Dumbledore was gay, per The Telegraph. Not only that, Rovling explained that Dambldor fell in love with Grindelwald before the other shook the dark art. After Dumbledore's heart was interrupted, he later defeated his rival, and Rovling called the entire relationship "a great tragedy".
The film leaves a relationship to interpretation, because the visions look intimate and even romantic. But the new film is so vague that the fans have the right to feel deceived for an important love story that would complicate Dumbledore's feelings for Grindelwald. Of course, the professor hinted at this in his comment on how close they were, but the LGBTK + community deserves a romance between men who are proudly proclaimed and not loosely implicit.
Maybe in the next one Fantastic Beasts Billing, Grindelwald, and Dumbledore's romance will finally be revealed more directly. For now, I just hope.
