The Fantastic Beasts third Installment is full of magic and mystery

Here’s what to expect on the highly anticipated fantasy movie and the fan theories

The character of Dumbledore and the entire mythology of Harry Potter are beloved by everybody, and as the Fantastic Beasts trilogy comes to a close, we can expect plenty of magic, mystery, and mayhem in the final installment.


The next "Fantastic Beasts" film, now titled "The Secrets of Dumbledore" will hit theaters on April 15, 2022, and will be directed by David Yates and produced by David Yates. The third installment in the fantasy franchise was originally planned to debut on July 15, 2019, but the studio has decided to push the release date up by three months to April 15, 2019.


"Professor Albus Dumbledore is very much aware that the great Dark wizard Gellert Grindelwald is attempting to have full control of the wizarding world," according to the official logline: " 


Newt Scamander is called in to assist Grindelwald in dealing with his growing army of followers, and he enlists the assistance of Magizoologist Newt Scamander, who leads an intrepid team of wizards and witches, as well as one brave Muggle baker, on a perilous mission in which they encounter both old and new beasts, as well as Grindelwald's growing army. With the stakes so high, how much longer can Dumbledore afford to sit back?


Universal will release DreamWorks Animation's The Bad Guys, which will compete with Paramount's Sandra Bullock-Channing Tatum adventure film The Lost City of D. Fantastic Beasts: The Secrets of Dumbledore will compete against DreamWorks Animation's The Bad Guys, which Paramount will release. Yet to be determined if those two studios will take a risk and release both films on the same day, on both platforms.


The Secrets of Dumbledore will be directed by David Yates, who will also serve as producer. Internationally, the two Fantastic Beasts films have earned a total of $1.46 billion. With the $7.7 billion earned by the Harry Potter franchise alone, the Rowling Wizarding Universe has amassed close to $9.2 billion in worldwide box office receipts for the whole series.

The Harry Potter The third installment series, director David Yates returns. Prequel series Newt Scamander (Eddie Redmayne) is set decades before the adventures of Harry, Ron, and Hermione and concentrates on the magizoologist Newt Scamander, who becomes a confidant of a young Albus Dumbledore (Jude Law), as Grindelwald rises to power in the form of a Hitler-like villain.


Earlier this year, the third installment of the "Fantastic Beasts" film series made news when Johnny Depp abruptly left the series, in which he played the wicked wizard Gellert Grindelwald, when Warner Bros. requested that he do so. Following the announcement that he had lost his libel suit against The Sun, a British tabloid that ran a story in 2018 suggesting he was a "wife abuser," Depp announced his resignation immediately after.


The role of Grindelwald will be taken over by actor Mads Mikkelsen, who will take over from Depp. Other actors will be joining are Katherine Waterston, Alison Sudol, Ezra Miller, Dan Fogler, and Jessica Williams are also among the cast members.


Potter author J.K. Rowling is best known for her anti-transgender remarks that she made without permission. Rowling also wrote the screenplays for the first two films in the franchise, "Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them" (2016) and "Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them II: The Crimes of Grindelwald" (2018), which were released in 2016 and 2018, respectively. Scriptwriting for the third "Fantastic Beasts" film is being done in conjunction with Rowling by Steve Klove worked on several of the early "Harry Potter" films and is currently co-writing the script with her.


Due to the fact that Albus Dumbledore is not the only Dumbledore to appear in the Fantastic Beasts trilogy, the last part, Fantastic Beasts: The Secrets of Dumbledore, will focus on Albus and his family. Harry Potter and the Philosopher's Stone is a series of seven novels that was first released in 1997, and it was J.K. Rowling's debut novel that introduced readers to the Wizarding World for the very first time.

Here are the Dumbledore Family we expect to see in the upcoming installment of Fantastic Beasts.


Albus Dumbledore.


Due to the fact that there are numerous facts about Albus Dumbledore's past that are either kept hidden or are constantly changing, he has gone from being one of the most beloved figures in the Fantasy Genre to one of the most mysterious (as Rowling keeps changing the Harry Potter world. 

While Fantastic Beasts 2 stated that Albus and Grindelwald had formed an unbreakable blood contract in order to never fight one other, it is known that the former ultimately conquered the latter. It is expected that Albus will play a major role in Fantastic Beasts 3, in which he will break the Blood Pact in order to fight Grindelwald and defeat him once and for all, while also learning more about his family history, with the possibility that Credence is his brother, and confronting the truth about who Ariana's killer was.


Aurelius Dumbledore.


Credence The history of Barebone can be a little complicated. When he was a newborn, his aunt sent him on a ship bound for America. On board the ship was also a young Leta Lestrange, who, fed up with her half-brother Corvus' screams, swapped him for her younger brother Credence. The ship subsequently sunk, and Corvus and Credence's aunt perished in the water. Credence, on the other hand, escaped and was later adopted by a family in America. Credence was adopted by a Muggle (or No-Maj) woman from the United States who was the leader of an anti-witchcraft organization called the New Salem Philanthropic Society. Credence was subjected to physical and emotional torture by his adoptive mother in order to conceal his magical powers, and as a result of all of this abuse, he was forced to become an Obscurial (a wizard or witch who develops a dark, parasitical magical force when their magic is suppressed through abuse).


Credence finally lost control of his Obscurus and wreaked havoc on the streets of New York, attracting the notice of Gellert Grindelwald in the process. Even though Credence was meant to be slain at the conclusion of Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them, he was able to escape the attack by the Aurors since an Obscurial cannot be killed when in their Obscurus condition. As a result, Credence started on a mission to discover his true identity, which led him to the Circus Arcanus, where he met and became friends with Nagini. 


He eventually reconnected with Grindelwald in Fantastic Beasts 2, when he demonstrated his allegiance to the evil wizard by placing his faith in him to teach him everything he needed to know about his actual identity. To conclude Fantastic Beasts 2, Grindelwald revealed to Credence that he is indeed Aurelius Dumbledore and that the fledgling bird he had been caring for was in fact an actual Phoenix, which according to tradition appears to members of the Dumbledore Family who are in desperate need. After that, it's safe to assume that Fantastic Beasts 3 will continue to explore Credence's backstory and will determine once and for all whether he is, in fact, a Dumbledore (something that fans of Harry Potter aren't on board with) or if it was all a lie perpetrated by Grindelwald in order to persuade him doing what he wants: brutally murder Albus Dumbledore.

Aberforth Dumbledore.


In Harry Potter, Aberforth Dumbledore is the younger brother of Albus Dumbledore and the older brother of Ariana Dumbledore. He is the younger brother of Albus Dumbledore and the older brother of Ariana Dumbledore.Aberforth spent his time at Hogwarts in the shadow of his brother, and while he preferred combat to talking and was a skilled duelist, his abilities were still incomparably inferior to Albus'. Grindelwald used the Cruciatus Curse on Aberforth after a disagreement with Albus over his and Grindelwald's hazardous ideals and his mistreatment of Ariana, which in turn set the stage for the duel that ended with Ariana's accidental death. Aberforth assaulted Albus during Ariana's burial and smashed his nose, accusing him of being responsible for their sister's death. As a result, their relationship was severely strained for years after that. Aberforth went on to work as a bartender at the Hog's Head Inn in Hogsmeade, which had a corridor leading directly into the Room of Requirement at Hogwarts, which proved to be of considerable assistance years later.


He served with the Order of the Phoenix during the First Wizarding War, and after Albus' death in Harry Potter and the Half-Blood Prince, he assisted the students at Hogwarts by bringing food and water to them through the aforementioned passageway, as well as keeping an eye on Harry through a shard of a two-way mirror he found in the passageway. 


Following his participation in the Battle of Hogwarts, Aberforth was able to survive the Second Wizarding War and return to his previous life as a bartender at the pub. Currently, Aberforth hasn't made an appearance in Fantastic Beasts, but if the film delves into Albus' family history, he will undoubtedly emerge. 


In the process, his connection with his brother will be examined, as will the truth about what transpired in the duel that killed Ariana.


Secrets we believe will be revealed in the film:


Dumbledore's Intentions to Do Harm

What the Wizarding community may not understand is that Dumbledore and Grindelwald were once on the same side when they battled Grindelwald, which was one of Dumbledore's most renowned accomplishments. Prior to becoming one of the Wizarding World's most beloved heroes, Albus was interested in forming a partnership with Grindelwald to reign over the Muggles, a fact that he has kept a closely guarded secret since.


The Wizarding World would have been a very different place if two of Harry Potter's most overpowered characters had linked together instead of competing against one another. However, Albus presently serves as one of Newt's most devoted allies in the Fantastic Beasts franchise, with both wizards determined to thwart the nefarious ambitions of Gellert Grindelwald's organization. However, it is probable that Grindelwald would utilize this dark truth against Albus in the third film and create an atmosphere of distrust between himself and Newt in order to seize control of the castle.

Dumbledore's Secret Son.


Dumbledore has always been a rather unpredictable character, but one of the most unexpected revelations in The Crimes Of Grindelwald concerns the future headmaster of Hogwarts. Towards the end of the film, Credence travels to Grindelwald's stronghold in Austria, where he is informed by the wicked dictator that his true name is Aurelius Dumbledore.

The exact nature of Credence's relationship to Dumbledore has not yet been disclosed, however it is possible that he is Dumbledore's son, which would be the most plausible explanation. Credence was born in 1901, at the age of 19 years old, which would have been his possible father. This corresponds to the time period in which Dumbledore and Grindelwald were rumored to have fallen in love. If Dumbledore had been having an extramarital affair with an unnamed lady during this time period, it would provide Grindelwald with a compelling reason for exposing this knowledge.


Percival Dumbledore's Detention is a major plot point in the Harry Potter series.


One of Dumbledore's most important mysteries in the Harry Potter series has to do with his father's whereabouts. Percival Dumbledore was imprisoned in Azkaban, one of Harry Potter's most hazardous locations, after assaulting a gang of Muggles who had bullied his daughter. He remained there until his death, which occurred in 1890, and is considered one of Harry Potter's most deadly locations. Albus Dumbledore feels ashamed of his father's belief, and he carries this secret to his grave with him.

With the closing of The Misdeeds Of Grindelwald hinting at a deeper dive into Dumbledore's family history, it's conceivable that the forthcoming film may go into greater detail about Percival's crimes than the previous film. Perhaps there were other cases of Percival retaliating against people who had harmed his daughter, which Albus has chosen to keep a secret.

Dumbledore Communicates in Parseltongue.


Parseltongue is a magical language that is mostly connected with evil wizards and is only understood by a small number of magical beings. The most well-known Parseltongue speakers in the Wizarding World are probably Harry Potter and Lord Voldemort, although there may be another well-known wizard who possesses this talent.


Harry Potter is taken on a tour through the memories of Bob Ogden by Dumbledore in the Harry Potter novel Half Blood Prince. They overhear a talk in Parseltongue between the Gaunt Family while they are there.


 Not only does it appear to Harry that Dumbledore knows what they are saying, but he also echoes their words back to him in the language that they are speaking in. According to appearances, Dumbledore is an accomplished speaker of the Parseltongue, a fact that was later confirmed in a interview with Bloomsbury, making it a secret that the third Fantastic Beasts film may be able to reveal in its fullness.


Dumbledore is a homosexual.


The notion that Albus Dumbledore is gay is perhaps the most talked-about Dumbledore mystery among fans. It is clear from the Harry Potter novels that the great wizard is gay, however this has not yet been recognized in the Wizarding World films or other media. Although the author has already established Dumbledore's sexual orientation, the character's association with Gellert Grindelwald has raised questions about his sexual orientation.


In light of the fact that the third Fantastic Beasts picture will be teasing Dumbledore's secrets, it's feasible that this could be the film in which Albus and Gellert finally make their relationship public. The presence of Grindelwald in the film has been confirmed, with Mads Mikkelsen taking up the primary role from Johnny Depp in the film. As a result, it is probable that the film will devote a significant amount of time to the duo's romance.


Dumbledore's Boggart.


Boggarts, who appear in the guise of a person's worst fears, may tell a great deal about a witch or wizard because of their unusual appearance. Whilst it is yet unclear what form the creature will take for Dumbledore, JK Rowling has already indicated that Albus's Boggart may be more personal to him and his family.


Dumbledore's sister Ariana, who is supposed to be the source of one of the wizard's most terrible secrets, is thought to be the target of the creature's shape-shifting abilities. Due to the fact that Ariana was slain in the crossfire of a three-way fight between Albus, his brother Aberforth, and Grindelwald, Dumbledore holds himself directly responsible for Ariana's death. 


With Newt's intense interest in magical animals, it's likely that he'll be able to hunt down one of these Boggarts, and Albus's biggest dread may finally be revealed.


The Practice of Taking Credit for Other People's Work.


Dumbledore is also guilty of taking credit for other people's successes, although this is a characteristic that is more often associated with Gilderoy Lockhart. An interview with the wizard Ivor Dillonsby is included in Rita Skeeter's in-universe book "The Life And Lies Of Albus Dumbledore," who claims that he discovered eight of the applications for dragon blood before Albus Dumbledore stole his notes and took full credit for them.


Considering Dumbledore's hidden breach of Ivor's confidence, it's possible that this may be a compelling narrative point in the forthcoming film. Newt is a published author, and with plagiarism being such a prevalent problem in the literary world, he is likely to take a hard line against individuals who steal ideas from others. Having passed off someone else's work as his own, Albus will almost certainly generate discord between himself and his former pupil as a result of his deception.


Dumbledore's Army is a group of wizards headed by Dumbledore.


The idea of a "Dumbledore's Army," the idea that Dumbledore had organized a covert army of students to overthrow the Ministry of Magic, is a key narrative premise in Harry Potter's fifth film, which is currently in production. While this is revealed to be the work of Harry Potter under the guise of Dumbledore in Order Of The Phoenix, of what Albus Dumbledore did, on a previous occasion, organize his own army of Hogwarts students.

While Gellert Grindelwald was ascending to power, Albus made the decision to utilize his position as Hogwarts' Defence Against The Arts Teacher to teach children in order to combat the wizard tyrant. With Fantastic Beasts 2 focusing on the adventures of Albus's former student Newt, it's possible that Fantastic Beasts 3 will delve deeper into Dumbledore's teaching career and provide a clearer glimpse into his secret ulterior motives. 


Dumbledore's Legal Knowledge and Skills.


Even while Dumbledore is well regarded as one of Hogwarts' most powerful professors, the wizard is also a very accomplished attorney. A key scene in the fifth Harry Potter film, Order Of The Phoenix, has Dumbledore defending Harry during his trial for practicing underage wizardry. Throughout the hearings, he demonstrates a significant degree of legal expertise, tearing the prosecution's claims to bits.

This film series takes place at the time period in which the future Hogwarts headmaster should have been a member of the Wizarding court of law known as the Wizengamot, which makes it strange that Dumbledore has yet to acknowledge his legal status. Because Albus helped Newt in breaching his travel ban in the last film, it is probable that his hidden law profession will be revealed, and his position in the Wizengamot will be put in peril as a result.


The Invisibility Capabilities of Dumbledore.


Dumbledore possesses an impressive collection of abilities, considering that he is likely the most powerful wizard in the Wizarding World. One of his lesser-known powers is his capacity to become invisible for a short period of time. While the first Harry Potter novel has a moment in which Dumbledore divulges his invisibility talents to Harry, the film version of Albus is much more coy about his ability to disappear invisibly in public.


With Grindelwald's army of followers continuing to grow, it would appear that the third Fantastic Beasts film would be an appropriate moment for Dumbledore to unveil this previously unknown talent. Having the ability to blend in with one's surroundings might prove to be a significant weapon in the struggle against the Wizarding tyrant, with Albus perhaps being able to utilize these talents to listen in to his old friend's plans and advices while remaining undiscovered.


Adding a young Albus Dumbledore (Jude Law) to the mix made the conflict with Grindelwald more personal because of their shared history. The film also included an unexpected twist at the end: Credence's true identity is that of Aurelius Dumbledore, Albus' long-lost brother. 


After Fantastic Beasts, the intention was to begin a new cinematic epic within the Wizarding World that would consist of five films, but it appears that this would only be a trilogy, with The Secrets of Dumbledore serving as the last part. Fantastic Beasts 3 will turn its attention to the Dumbledore family, as implied by the title, and so far, there are three Dumbledores who have confirmed that they will feature in the film.

The third Fantastic Beasts film is a highly anticipated film, and we can't wait to find out more about it until it is released in theaters in 2022.
