What will be the Plot of Fantastic Beasts 3??
The first film was set in 1926 in New York, while the second film took place in 1927, mostly in Paris. If Fantastic Beasts 3 does take place in 1939, that’s quite a time jump. But the franchise does need to get to 1945, which is the year of Grindelwald and Dumbledore’s infamous duel.
The Crimes of Grindelwald ended with the dark wizard using the fear of a world war to gather more followers to his cause. Two of those followers are Queen and Credence (for different reasons). Added to all this is that one of Newt’s Niffler friends stole the blood pact between Dumbledore and Grindelwald.
Moreover, Fantastic Beasts 3 could build on this and show that Grindelwald has amassed quite a lot of power in five to six years and has stoked fears to the point of WWII. Maybe he’s behind the rise of Hitler and the Nazis. Meanwhile, we may see Newt and his friends searching the world for the blood pact so that Dumbledore is released from it and can eventually duel Grindelwald.
Some questions that needed to get answered
How is Dumbledore going to destroy the Blood Pact?
In one of the film scenes of the film, Newt gives Dumbledore a broach-like object that holds drops of both Grindelwald and Dumbledore’s blood, which he stole from Grindelwald’s ornate jacket.
We saw earlier in the Mirror of Erised that they were making some sort of pact/promise, but we didn’t have any of the details. Dumbledore filled some of those blanks in for us.
He told Scamander that he and Grindelwald made a Blood Pact to never fight each other when they were teenagers. This answers a few questions for us. Now, fans know why Dumbledore sent Scamander in his stead. It wasn’t because he had feelings for his old friend.
It was because he literally couldn’t fight him. Dumbledore tells Newt he’s going to try to break the Blood Pact, but it seems as sacred as an Unbreakable Vow. Dumbledore has accepted that he has to fight Grindelwald.
We’re not sure if Grindelwald is as eager as the future Headmaster, though. We do know that Dumbledore will defeat Grindelwald in a duel in 1945, so he does break the pact somehow. But what does Dumbledore have to sacrifice or give up to undo this powerful magic?
How the heck does Dumbledore have a long-lost brother he doesn’t know about?
Albus Dumbledore has always been one step ahead of the game. Fantastic Beasts 3 is going to send Dumbledore reeling.
Moreover, in the final scene of Crimes of Grindelwald, Grindelwald revealed to Credence that he was Aurelius Dumbledore. He implied that Dumbledore was his brother.
We have no idea how Grindelwald would know this, and Dumbledore wouldn’t.
The timeline also gets super wonky here. Kendra Dumbledore, Albus’s mother, died in 1899 when she was probably in her 40s.
Percival Dumbledore was locked up in Azkaban sometime in the 1880s. We’re not sure if he was released. It’s 1927 in Crimes of Grindelwald. That would mean that Aurelius is 27 or 28.
In the first Fantastic Beasts movie though, at Mary Lou Barebone, he still seemed like a teenager. At first glance, the math just doesn’t add up.
Directed and written by Davis Yated and Steve Klove, J.K Rowling- Fantastic Beasts 3 will release on July 15, 2022.
