Fantastic Beasts: Crimes in Grindelwald in the last moments resulted in a rather big surprise twist. Harry Potter canon forever.[[[[Spoiler tracking]Throughout the film, the orphaned Cennence Barebone (Ezra Miller) was looking for his true identity in Paris. Fans – and even some other characters – assumed that Leta Lestrange (Zoe Kravitz) had a long-lost brother. Outside of Leta, the troublesome child had replaced his younger brother with another baby on a sea voyage, and his real brother was tragically drowned by the ship during a storm.Crimes in Grindelwald It's not a shy film about killing children. In the final moments of the film, Gellert Grindelwald (Johnny Depp) Aurelius Dumbledore and his "brother" (probably Albus) trying to kill him. A phoenix we previously remembered in the film will come to a Dumbledore who needs it all the time (however, after being in such a danger and drama, the magical creature will now come to Cennence).
By Harry Potter There are books, only one brother of Albus (Aberforth). We also had a troubled sister (Ariana) who apparently has an obscurial (like Credence). He accidentally died during a duel between Albus and Grindelwald, and it has been a heavy incident since then.
Credence, who is a Dumbledore, helps explain his immense magical ability and establishes a personal connection with the action of Grindelwald's enemy. He also potentially gives Albus a second chance at liberation – he couldn't save Ariana, but maybe he could save Aurelius?
(Fun fact, likely coincidence: Aurelius has a connection with the first actor who played Dumbledore: Richard Harris played the prisoner Marcus Aurelius. Gladiator.)
So that's what we know. What we don't know is almost everything. The thing that comes up raises a ton of questions and doesn't make much sense when it comes to a hundred. But let's take a closer look.
First of all, let's say Grindelwald is telling the truth. He may be lying, but this is unlikely – the great shows at the end of Rowling's novels tend to be true, otherwise what is the point? However, it is hard to imagine that no one has ever mentioned (Rita Skeeter missed this one), one of the most famous wizards of all time. The situation is no different from a controversial movement by another prequel, Star Trek: Discoveryand decided to give Spock an adopted sister.
And as pointed out by the Rowling Library, ages are not added. Albus 'father, Percival, was sent to the Azkaban prison, and finally died a year before Albus' departure to Hogwarts – so the future professor and school principal was nearly 10 years old, and Credence and Albus have definitely been in the for more than 10 years. (Then again, Crimes in Grindelwald it also shows a young Minerva McGonagall, who worked in Hogwarts, although his character appeared a few years after the film had taken place.
It is also unclear whether Albus is the brother of Credence. Someone seems to be the most intelligent character of the room, as someone knows more about Cennence and says it aloud. But if what Grindelwald says is true and Albus knows this, it's hard to imagine Dumbledore defending an action plan. crime This could lead to the death of your own brother.
There are theories there. Perhaps Ariana's Obscurus has Credence and is ’brother’ referring to Grindelwald? Maybe Credence is actually the secret son of Ariana (but then who is the "brother"?). Can Albus's father consider Aurelius in Azkaban? (It's hard to have sex with Dementors standing inside.)
One thing is certain: Rowling wouldn't do it without a clear statement. Of course, we will have to wait for the third film of the expected series in 2020.
