Fans Think Harry Potter's Ariana Dumbledore Was An Obscurus & We Definitely Agree With Them

Harry Potter fans are just way too smart and we yearn to be like them all the time — especially when they figure out something like this.

In a major connection with the prequel franchise, Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them, fans have pointed out that Ariana Dumbledore, Albus’ younger sister, might have actually been an obcurus too, like Credence (Ezra Miller).

Here’s the history behind Ariana: she was assaulted by three Muggle boys who saw her doing magic and because of this trauma, Ariana refuses to use her powers and becomes magically unstable.

Years later, their mother Kendra dies in an accidental outburst of magic from Ariana, leaving Albus in charge of the family.

Sounds an awful lot like an obscurus to us!

See what all the fans are saying below:

Plot Details for 'Fantatic Beasts' Sequel Are Finally Here!

We finally know some details about the plot for the Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them sequel!

The sequel will hit theaters on November 16, 2018.

The film will pick up with Johnny Depp‘s Grindelwald having escaped and “gathering more followers to his cause — elevating wizards above all non-magical beings. The only one who might be able to stop him is the wizard he once called his dearest friend, Albus Dumbledore (Jude Law). But Dumbledore will need help from the wizard who had thwarted Grindelwald once before, his former student Newt Scamander. The adventure reunites Newt with Tina (Katherine Waterston), Queenie (Alison Sudol) and Jacob (Dan Fogler), but his mission will also test their loyalties as they face new perils in an increasingly dangerous and divided wizarding world.”

In addition to Eddie Redmayne, Zoe Kravitz, and more, Ezra Miller will also return “whose fate was unknown at the end of the first film” and who “makes a mysterious return.”
