Now, Harry potter series author JK Rowling is all the rage (again) for the wrong reasons (again) due to a synopsis for the upcoming film that suggests Fantastic Beasts: Secrets of Dumbledore (April 15, 2022) will have a WWII setting:

Several years after the events of the Crimes of Grindelwald, the story takes place partly in Rio de Janeiro, Brazil, and partly in Berlin, Germany and leads to the involvement of the wizarding world in World War II. With Grindelwald’s rapid growth in power, Albus Dumbledore gives Newt Scamander and his friends a mission that will lead to a clash with Grindelwald’s army, and lead Dumbledore to wonder how long he will be left on the sidelines of the war that approach.

Social media users are concerned that Rowling’s opinions and the characters’ past portrayals may impact the presentation of the Jewish people in the highly anticipated film, which will star Mads Mikkelsen as Gellert Grindelwald after Johnny Depp (Pirates of the Caribbean) was fired amid his ongoing legal drama with ex-wife Amber Heard.

Ben Fletcher wrote:

His own hateful comments and actions show that @jk_rowling is transphobic. But more than that, whether consciously or not, the Harry Potter series is replete with examples of everything from body shame to anti-Semitism, from sexism to sexual harassment and stereotypes to racism.

Havana Syndrome shared a screenshot of the aforementioned synopsis with the caption:

I’m sure JK Rowling will approach the subject with all his well-known finesse and tact.

THE ADORABLE CoffeeCat replied:

“I’m not a fanatic,” says JK Rowling, “The tweet where I directly said“ you had to hand it over to the Nazi wizards ”has been taken out of context and I will sue anyone who dares to quote me directly or imply anti- . semitism “

I’m sure we can all trust JK Rowling to handle such a delicate subject with careful understanding and sensitivity – okay then.

Right now, of course, concerns about how the plot of the next Dumbledore-centric film will be handled remain pure speculation.

This third part of the Fantastic Beasts universe is the continuation of Fantastic Beasts: The Crimes of Grindelwald (2018). It will star Eddie Redmayne, Katherine Waterston, Ezra Miller, Callum Turner, William Nadylam, Poppy Corby-Tuech, Jessica Williams, Jude Law, Dan Fogler, Alison Sudol and, as noted, Mads Mikkelsen.
