Yesterday was the Press Conference for Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them and the World Premiere too in London. J.K. Rowling was present at both events, and she revealed more about the upcoming films of this new series.
Rowling talked about Albus Dumbledore and what we are going to see in the second film:
“You will see Dumbledore as a younger man and quite a troubled man. We’ll see him at that formative period of his life. As far as his sexuality is concerned, watch this space.”
“Well, it’s true that Harry is not in the movie, because he’s not born yet. But this is very much of the world. And there are characters, you will learn more about through ‘Fantastic Beasts.’ I’m being so careful. This is ‘Potter.’ There’s a certain glory in writing a standalone novel where you can write anything you want. Now I’’m back in top-secret territory again.”
“Originally, to tell you the truth, we said ‘a trilogy’ as a placeholder. We were feeling our way, and then there came a point in the drafting of the story […] where I could see an arc to five. It came out of the material. It’s ambitious to tell it in five, to be honest, because it’s spanning 19 years.”
