Dumbledore Has Several 'Sensual' Scenes With Grindelwald In Upcoming 'Fantastic Beasts' Film, Director Reveals

By Mike Walsh

JK Rowling rocked everybody's world in 2007 when she announced Dumbledore was gay in front of 2,000 fans in Carnegie Hall.  And now, with the release of 'Fantastic Beasts 2,' we may get glimpses of Dumbledore's world getting rocked by Gellert Grindelwald.

After director David Yates was criticized for saying Dumbledore will not be "explicitly gay" in the new film, he seems to have made a 180.

Yates said Dumbledore, who will be portrayed in his younger years by Jude Law, is now moving in that direction.

“This part of this huge narrative that Jo is creating doesn’t focus on his sexuality, but we’re not airbrushing or hiding it… The story [of the romantic relationship] isn’t there in this particular movie, but it’s clear in what you see… that he is gay.”

“A couple of scenes we shot are very sensual moments of him and the young Grindelwald,” he finished.  Young Grindelwald will continue to be portrayed by Johnny Depp.
