Harry Potter Prequel Series:
In an effort to thwart Grindelwald’s plan of raising wizards born of pure blood (blood of both magical parents) wizards, J.K. Rowling has already started writing the third of the five total entries in the Wizarding World Saga. It’s not often that one gets to pick on the brains of the literary writer who knows her path for her non-magical wizards and purebloods alike. For starters, readers are assured of the roadmap where the characters are going to end, but there might be surprising elements of a few familiar and non-popular characters release. Here are a few burning answers of what’s to expect next in the connection of the 2nd and 3rd film.
1. The Title Character
The first mention of the murderer sociopath is mentioned in the book “Harry Potter and the Philosopher’s Stone “Grindelwald”. Johnny Depp’s character has been the part of the canon from the very beginning. The dark wizard had defeated Dumbledore in the year 1945. Although the 1945 account hasn’t been written well in the books. It’s very on early establishment will lay the standings in the “Crimes of Grindelwald Movie”.
Gellert Grindelwald was once in possession of the elder wand (as Voldemort did later). But now the author has a clear understanding of where the faith of the dark wizard lies. Grindelwald is very essential for understanding how Dumbledore became Dumbledore.
2. Dumbledore will have an Intimate scene with Grindelwald in Fantastic Beasts 2
Dumbledore is a fascinating character on many levels. It was revealed by JK Rowling that Dumbledore was Gay since he fell in love with Gellert Grindelwald only to be later converted into his nemesis. Step forward David Yates has claimed that the wizard is not explicitly gay but has sensual moments of him and the young Gellert Grindelwald.
In a recent interview, the director insisted that they are not romanticizing his sexuality neither are they airbrushing or hiding the fact, that he is gay. The story of their romance isn’t there in this movie. But it is clear of what one will see.
“[The Crimes of Grindelwald] is about other things, fundamentally, but the story of Grindelwald and Dumbledore, going forward, that is the story.”
In 2007, JK Rowling admitted to her fans that Dumbledore was homosexual, and she always thought of him as someone who was of fond of Grindelwald as his dear and near.
“I always thought of Dumbledore as gay. Dumbledore fell in love with Grindelwald, and that added to his horror when Grindelwald showed himself to be what he was. To an extent, do we say it excused Dumbledore a little more because falling in love can blind us to an extent, but he met someone as brilliant as he was and, rather like Bellatrix, he was very drawn to this brilliant person and horribly, terribly let down by him. Yeah, that’s how I always saw Dumbledore. In fact, recently I was in a script read-through for the sixth film, and they had Dumbledore saying a line to Harry early in the script saying, ‘I knew a girl once, whose hair…’ I had to write a little note in the margin and slide it along to the scriptwriter, ‘Dumbledore’s gay!’
3. Credence Barebone (Ezra Miller) is the driving force behind the sequel’s plot
According to Joanne Rowling, the Obscurial manifestation of Ezra Miller is the reason why all our wizard community ends up in Paris.
“The reason everyone goes to Paris, really, is Credence,” she says.
Credence was the mystical power figure in the previous Fantastic Beasts movie. The reveal of Grindelwald and Newt’s unleash of Beasts in the non-magical city of New York were the associated pieces of the puzzle of the mass killings that were taking place.
Now as declared dead, our friend has returned due to unexplained circumstances. Credence is seen in a Circus associated with a Maledictus, Nagini (Claudia Kim) since he wants to find out who he is. A wizard whose powers exploded due to repression is now being sought by both Dumbledore and Grindelwald.
Paris here is the representation of the 1927 cultural hotbed. Writing greats such as Ernest Hemingway, F. Scott Fitzgerald, Zelda Fitzgerald, Gertrude Stein, Salvador Dalí, and Pablo Picasso were the followings of this era. The much time which is spent over there is following the years’ post World War I. “Annees follies” or “crazy years” is the adjective of the wizarding war in the boiling film.
One of the Easter eggs which is probably not being disclosed when one of those writers out of hiding turns out to be a wizard or witch. A similar reference was carried out for Andy Warhol as an undercover agent in Men in Black 3.
“Things are becoming much more dark and complicated,” Rowling says.
Behind the scenes reveal of the wizarding world of beasts revealed Grindelwald held captive under the custody of MACUSA. On en route to Europe to answer for his crimes, the prisoner is successful to help escape his captivity with his devious plans. The crusade continues as he is set on being hellbent of making wizards great again. Alliances are formed, and allegiances are exposed for the darker times are about the conquer the non-magical beings once more.
“We’re not getting to the meat of the story and everything gets darker and more intricate. Whatever you think you know at the end of the movie, might not be the case.”
4. ‘Fantastic Beasts’ Had a Big Clue About Its Magic Circus Sequel
A cool yet not a random idea was at its core in the previous beast installment. As now with the reveal of Lady Kim’s Nagini, interesting facts are hitting people’s face hard, especially when special powers belong to only special sexes and age groups. A Maledictus must be a female, an Obscurial must be a kid with uncontrollable powers and so on. The official description of the second film had an intriguing line,
“Claudia Kim as a young woman first encountered as a featured attraction at a wizarding circus….Ólafur Darri Ólafsson is Skender, who runs the wizarding circus…”
If one gets to revisit “Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them”, there is a shot of Colin Farell’s Percival Graves who is the dark Gellert Grindelwald in concealment nest to which there is a poster of “Circus Arkansas” and the tagline “bound to Europe” to be clearly headlining the movies are set in Paris.
Since Rowling composed the script, the circus will end up being a huge deal in future movies. There are minor references that had become the relevant plot points down the line. Tom Marvolo Riddle’s diary was the star of the twist in the books and movies until the word “Horcrux” is now being considered the mammoth since there is a direct link to the circus.
Even to elaborate Dumbledore’s magical pensive further it is the true traveling wizarding circus and a freak show owned by Skender. The carnival boasts the world’s most complete fraternity of human oddities. A daily street parade which the organizers promised was worth coming miles to see.
5. Each Beast Film is set in a different City
For the British writer it is far too early too spoil anything. For starters the possible giveaway for the fans that they’ll get to visit one new city in the film, is what the writer spoils for the pleasure. The connection beyond Newt Scamander and his fellow wizards can only be succumbed once it’s possible to visit atleast one new city in the next film, possibly two adding how the writer is keen to leave behind Europe and North America on which the entire premise has been set.
As Rowling puts it,
“As with the Harry Potter books, it is all mapped out. In fact, when we announced the five films, I talked about that. It’s always possible that some details will change along the way, but the arc of the story is there. It’s been an amazing opportunity to tell parts of the backstory that never made it into the original books. I’m thinking particularly of one character that I think fans will be surprised to meet in this movie.”
