Nowadays there are a lot of things to talk about Fantastic Beasts movie series. When we say Wizarding World, it’s hard to find someone who doesn’t know about it. Wizarding World is a fantasy world based on the Harry Potter novel series written by Mrs. JK Rowling. After the end of the Harry Potter series, many people were still with this wizarding world fantasy, so they decided to create a prequel movie series related to this fantasy. That is the Fantastic Beast movie series. It has been officially announced that the fantastic beasts series will consist of five films and two films have been released so far.
The Fantastic Beast series, which revolves around the main role, Newt Scamander, is based on an incident that took place in the youth of our beloved Professor Albus Dumbledore. We were able to see Albus Dumbledore as a young man in the second Fantastic Beast movie.
This Fantastic Beasts film series is about action against a dark sorcerer named Gellert Grindelwald, who preceded Voldemort. Gellert Grindelwald is a very clever and wise Wizard. He is at the top of the wizards’ rankings. And the duel which happened between him and Albus can be identified as the greatest battle in witchcraft history. All this we will be able to see through the upcoming Fantastic Beasts movies.
However, the official title of the third Fantastic Beasts movie was released on September 22. According to that, its name is “Fantastic Beasts: The Secrets of Dumbledore“. And also it has set a release date as April 15, 2022.
As soon as we see this name we are all reminded of our beloved Albus Dumbledore whom we all know and love.
But is this name really for Albus Dumbledore?
Whoever we are, as soon as we see the title of the film, we are reminded that this is about the secrets of Professor Albus Dumbledore that we know. But there is a situation where we can not say that all of a sudden. Because you may remember, at the end of Fantastic Beasts: The Crimes of Grindelwald movie, Grindelwald called to the boy named Credence, one of the main character since the first film, as Aurelius Dumbledore. At that time, Grindelwald said that Credence was actually a member of Dumbledore’s family and that Credence’s real name was Aurelius Dumbledore. That is why we have a question as to whether that new Dumbledore will be the major title in the third film.
Title of Fantastic Beasts: The Secrets of Dumbledore
Usually, there are hidden things in the titles released in Fantastic Beasts movies. That is, the title tells us in advance what will happen in the film. You may remember that the recently released title Fantastic Beasts: The Secrets Of Dumbledore appeared in gold and silver colors.
So the audience now has a reasonable suspicion that these two colors have given a deep idea. Let’s see about that.
Grindelwald calls Credence as Aurelius Dumbledore. The name “Aurelius” means shining in gold. Not only that, hope you all know about Albus Dumbledore’s dead sister Ariana Dumbledore. The special thing is The name “Ariana” means silver color. So it’s understandable that the two colors represent in the title are about two Dumbledores. It can be a big reason for this title with this color similarity. This means that we can guess that the story revolves around both Aurelius and Ariana inside the fantastic Beasts 3rd film.
Fantastic Beasts 3: fan theories about these Dumbledores.
A long-standing fan theory is that Ariana is an Obscurial. Fans have come up with a large number of criteria that can prove it. And we can often assume that it is true. (Simply put, an Obscurus can raise in a child who, mentally or physically abused to suppress his magical abilities, can become violent and uncontrollable, destructive, and dangerous.)
However, the end of the first movie of the Fantastic Beasts showing that an Obscurus is growing inside Credence. And the revelation that Credence is a member of the Dumbledore family at the end of the second Fantasy Beasts movie, with that new fan theory has created.
That is, Aurelius and Ariana are in the same body. The fan theory that Ariana is an Obscurial mentioned earlier has also led to the creation of this new fan theory.
Accordingly, this new fan theory states that Ariana is an Obscurial. And after Ariana’s death, her Obscurus lives on in Credence’s body. At the end of Fantastic Beasts’ second film, Grindelwald tells Credence that “your brother seeks to destroy you“. The words “your brother” were used by Grindelwald to refer not to Credence but to Ariana’s Obscuras which living in his body. due to this reason, there is a reasonable doubt that the above fan theory can be correct. However, this is very difficult to accept as the likelihood of such a thing happening is very low.
These things have led us to assume that Albus Dumbledore will not be the main title in Fantastic Beasts 3. The title has mentioned only Dumbledore. But It is not clear exactly which Dumbledore is in the title. So the above-discussed things maybe can possible or maybe not.
Will we be able to see Aberforth Dumbledore?
Another thing to keep in mind when talking about the Dumbledore family is that there is a rumor. That is Albus’ brother Aberforth will be seen in the upcoming Fantastic Beasts third film. Rumors said that Richard Coyle will be cast as Aberforth Dumbledore.
If this were the case we would be able to see the few members of the Dumbledore family in the third Fantastic Beasts movie. However, after the film release on April 15, 2022, we will be able to see all the secrets.
