Fantastic Beasts: The Ultimate Revelation Of Albus Dumbledore
To better understand Dumbledore- a beloved character to become a mysterious enigma -we must rewind the clock to the beginning. JK Rowling began crafting a story about Dumbledore in 1990 and before starting on her first Harry Potter story, she must have started wondering about who he is. So as she created Harry Potter and then described his magical world, she began scribbling down sketchy ideas of who Albus Dumbledore truly was. . With the release of a new film about Dumbledore on the horizon, we should explore why so many people are fascinated by this guy.
Dumbledore is first introduced to Harry Potter as a mystery. He first appeared in the film Harry Potter and the Philosopher's Stone in 2001, played by Richard Harris. He passed away in 2002, and a new Dumbledore was cast for Harry Potter And The Prisoner Of Azkaban, who Michael Gambon plays. He is different from the original, which is entirely perplexing, but he plays it well because he features a decrease in cheerfulness while maintaining his mysterious ways. In retrospect, it would have been hard to see how Richard Harris became this darker and more erratic figure even if they did not change his face.
The franchise created a character that's always got more mysteries and quirky qualities. The introduction of Obscurials adds an explanation to Ariana's situation, who was accidentally attacked by people when she was young. This account is in accordance with Aberforth, who said it drove her insane and became dangerous and unpredictable. This makes sense as there were other Obscurials seen in the film - one of them being Credence Barebone. In Deathly Hallows, Dumbledore- played by Jude Law, who does a fantastic job at channelling Michael Gambon if you compare both roles - already knew about Credence. Still, Grindelwald hints toward him being Aurelius near the end of the film, which is vital for Dumbledore as he may be involved with the next Fantastic Beasts movie.
Harry and Dumbledore develop a mentor-mentee relationship. However, Harry realises that there is more to Dumbledore's past that he has hidden. Harry discovers information about Dumbledore's past that changes the way he sees him in "Harry Potter And The Deathly Hallows". Dumbledore's brother confirms Harry's suspicions.
Dumbledore was friends with the vicious Gellert Grindelwald and even shared some of his radical ideas, supporting magical rule over Muggles in the name of the "greater good". Their conflict eventually resulted in a deadly duel where Dumbledore's troubled sister Ariana was killed.
But the hectic and confusing finale of The Crimes Of Grindelwald revealed all of the story twist about Credence Barebone, including mistaken identity before anyone spoke the word Dumbledore. Now there's the fact that Grindelwald- who will be played by Mads Mikkelsen instead of Johnny Depp- will see Dumbledore for the first time since they split on sour terms in the aftermath of Ariana's death, with unresolved sentiments on both sides of the equation. Dumbledore is one character where nothing is set in stone.
As of now, Dumbledore has refused to speak with anyone. However, cross your fingers and hope he will one day tell the legend of Dumbledore to future generations.
On the 8th day of April, thousands of people will flock to theatres to see Fantastic Beasts: Secrets of Dumbledore.
