'Fantastic Beasts' Director David Yates Confirms There Won't Be A Gay Storyline For Dumbledore In Sequel

One thing you can expect not to see in Fantastic Beasts: The Crimes of Grindewald is the exploration of Dumbledore’s sexuality.

Though Harry Potter author JK Rowling has admitted that the wizard is gay in 2007, director David Yates confirmed the news in a recent interview.

“Not explicitly,” he told EW. “But I think all the fans are aware of that. He had a very intense relationship with Grindelwald when they were young men. They fell in love with each other’s ideas, and ideology and each other.”

“He’s a maverick and a rebel and he’s an inspiring teacher at Hogwarts,” David dished about Dumbledore, played by Jude Law. “He’s witty and has a bit of edge. He’s not this elder statesman. He’s a really kinetic guy. And opposite Johnny Depp as Grindelwald, they make an incredible pairing.”

There will be three more movies in the Fantastic Beasts series, so the exploration of Dumbledore’s sexuality isn’t out of the question just yet.
