David Yates comments on significance of Dumbledore's sexuality in 'Fantastic Beasts'
 
In a new interview tidbit, director David Yates revealed how much of a role Dumbledore's sexuality will play in the Fantastic Beasts series, starting off with November's release of Fantastic Beasts: The Crimes of Grindelwald. Oscar-nominated actor Jude Law, seen below, will take on the role of Albus Dumbledore in his 40s.

David Yates: “Not explicitly, 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. 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.”
Warner Bros. Pictures announces Fantastic Beasts: The Crimes of Grindelwald as the title of the second of five all new adventures in J.K. Rowling’s Wizarding World™. Opening exactly one year from today, November 16, 2018, the film features an ensemble cast led by Eddie Redmayne, Katherine Waterston, Dan Fogler, Alison Sudol, Ezra Miller, with Jude Law and Johnny Depp.

At the end of the first film, the powerful Dark wizard Gellert Grindelwald (Depp) was captured by MACUSA (Magical Congress of the United States of America), with the help of Newt Scamander (Redmayne). But, making good on his threat, Grindelwald escaped custody and has set about gathering followers, most unsuspecting of his true agenda: to raise pure-blood wizards up to rule over all non-magical beings.

In an effort to thwart Grindelwald’s plans, Albus Dumbledore (Law) enlists his former student Newt Scamander, who agrees to help, unaware of the dangers that lie ahead. Lines are drawn as love and loyalty are tested, even among the truest friends and family, in an increasingly divided wizarding world.

Fantastic Beasts: The Crimes of Grindelwald is being directed by David Yates, from a screenplay by Harry Potter author J.K. Rowling, and produced by David Heyman, J.K. Rowling, Steve Kloves and Lionel Wigram.

well.... i guess i'll have to wait and see how exactly they would handle this. DD's relationship with Grindy is a big thing, its what made their enmity even more intense and tragic. i understand if Yates and crew wants to portray the relationship in its totality, that its not just a physical or emotional attraction but everything that makes a remarkable partnership. i'll be ok with that, just not some kind of hush hush attempt for the sake of the ratings board or whatever.
