Dumbledore’s gay love confession in latest Fantastic Beasts trailer

Dumbledore Grindelwald Fantastic Beasts

Fantastic Beasts: The Secrets of Dumbledore have dropped the latest trailer for the film and it features a gay love confession between Dumbledore and Grindelwald.

The on-screen confession has been a long time coming for the much-loved character.

Fans have been eagerly awaiting more details on this love story to be explained in the upcoming third film.

It’s been a long time coming

It’s been almost 15 years since JK Rowling confirmed that the much-loved character of Albus Dumbledore was gay.

A prominent figure in the hit Harry Potter series, Dumbledore is now a household name around the world.

In 2007 after the release of the final book JK Rowling confirmed that the character was in fact gay the whole time.

Almost 7 years later the now controversial author reiterated the statement by famously responding to a fan on Twitter.

“I just can’t see Dumbledore as gay,” they said.

To which the author replied.

Finally, Dumbledore and Grindelwald confess their love

Discussion about the relationship between the two wizards has continued for many years.

However, with two of the Fantastic Beasts films (which centre around Dumbledore and Grindelwald) released so far nothing had been said of their relationship.

Until now.

The latest trailer for Fantastic Beasts: The Secrets of Dumbledore was released this week.

During the 30 second clip, the two lovers are seen having an intense discussion.

Grindelwald, now played by Mads Mikkelsen, implies Dumbledore promised he would stay be his side.

Dumbledore, played by Jude Law replies simply “It’s because I was in love with you.”

The admission marks the first time in any of the Harry Potter films, books or spin-offs that the famous headmaster’s sexuality has been openly addressed.

Fans of the series are now in a spin after the release of the trailer.

Many are hoping this is an indication that the true relationship of the two characters will be explored in the upcoming film.

Fantastic Beasts: The Secrets of Dumbledore is due to be released on April 7th, 2022.

Watch the trailer below.
