Dumbledore and Grindelwald; it is well known that Dumbledore and Grindelwald had a relationship together. Something which many Potterheads have been hoping will be portrayed in the Fantastic Beasts franchise.

It was already decided that Dumbledore’s sexuality would not be highlighted upon in the movie, a decision which caused much outrage. However, despite the decision, many fans have hoped that scenes between Dumbledore and Grindelwald will happen.

That question has now been answered by Jude Law. Entertainment Weekly put the question to him;

"Obviously, Dumbledore had a relationship with Grindelwald. What’s that relationship like at this point in time? And what was it like working with Johnny Depp?I don’t actually have any scenes with Johnny."

So for all of you who were hoping to see the two wizards come face to face I’m afraid it is not good news. They will not, at least not this time anyway. Jude Law went on to explain that this is only the second Fantastic Beasts movie. There is still plenty to come.
