We are only a few days from the premiere of _ Fantastic Beasts: The Secrets of Dumbledore _. However, it has been revealed that Warner Bros. has eliminated references to the love relationship between Dumbledore and Grindelwald on this ribbon for the Chinese public.
The new Fantastic Beast film was already premiered in China, and immediately discovered that six seconds of the original tape were eliminated. While this could be insignificant when we talk about a feature film of more than two hours, the content that was cut out were Dumbledore’s dialogs that refer to the relationship with Grindelwald.
The cut lines of the film are “because he was in love with you” and “the summer that Gellert and I fell in love with us”. When this information is known, Warner Bros. shared a statement where they justified this decision. This was what they commented:
“As a study, we are committed to safeguarding the integrity of each film we launched, and that extends to circumstances that require nuanced cuts to respond with sensitivity to a variety of factors in the market. Our hope is to launch our functions around the world, as published by their creators, but historically we have faced small editions made in local markets… We want the public around the world to see and enjoy this movie, and it is important for We that the Chinese public has the opportunity to experience it as well, even with these minor issues… The spirit of the film remains intact. “
While during the Harry Potter books and movies, it was never talked about Dumbledore’s sexuality, j.r. Rowling, author of this magical world, revealed in 2009 that the director of Hogwarts is gay . Since then, the fans have waited more than a decade to see this representation at the cinema.
At least in the version that will arrive in Mexico, Dumbledore’s dialogues are present. _ fantastic Beasts: The Secrets of Dumbledore_ will be available at the cinemas of our country on April 14, 2022 . On related topics, you can check the first opinions on this tape here.
It is a real pity that this type of decisions will continue to go by to please a market. However, this is something that is not surprised, we are talking about six seconds, content that can be easily cut, and that it does not really have a great weight in history, so this was something that was already planned.
