Expected for November 16 , Fantastic Beasts 2: Crimes Grindelwald , new opus of the spin-off saga Harry Potter, reveals little by little its secrets.

And one of them may make more than one fan talk.

David Yates, the director of the film, has indeed indicated that the homosexuality of Albus Dumbledore – who appears younger as Jude Law – will not be explicitly shown. The character’s sexual preferences were unveiled by JK Rowling, the author of the books, in 2007. She also said that the one who was the director of Hogwarts had a relationship with Gellert Grinderwald, the villain of the Fantastic Animals (played by Johnny Depp).

To explain the lack of references on this subject, Yates explains that all fans are already aware:

“I think all fans are aware [that he is homosexual]. He had a very intense relationship with Grindelwald when they were younger. They fell in love with each other, their ideas, and their ideology, “he told Entertainment Weekly .

As for the possibility of seeing the question happen more frontally in one of the other 3 expected suites, he says he is “very comfortable with this question”:

“I can not tell you everything I want because it’s obviously a five-part story, but there’s a lot to say about that relationship. I will say that you will see Dumbledore as a younger and rather troubled man because he has not always been a sage [a mentor]. He has always been very intelligent, but we will see him in what I think is a training period. Regarding his sexuality, keep an eye on this sequence. “
