Fantastic Beasts And Where To Find Them director David Yates is clarifying some early comments about Dumbledore’s sexuality.
He says viewers will know the wizard is gay, even though he won’t be “out” in the movie.
“This part of this huge narrative that Jo is creating doesn’t focus on his sexuality, but we’re not airbrushing or hiding it,” he explained. “A couple of scenes we shot are very sensual moments of him and the young Grindelwald.”
“The story [of their romance] isn’t there in this particular movie but it’s clear in what you see… that he is gay,” Yates continued.
