“Potterversity” Episode 23: “Secrets of Dumbledore: Outtakes and Conversations”

Eavesdrop on the Potterversity faculty in the staff lounge as we dish about Fantastic Beasts: The Secrets of Dumbledore!

NOTE: This episode contains spoilers!



On this special episode, hear uncensored opinions and on-the-spot analysis about Secrets of Dumbledore from some of our Potterversity regulars, Beatrice Groves, Emma Nicholson, Louise Freeman, and Lana Whited. We’ve pulled together outtakes from our technically off-the-record conversations for your listening pleasure. These are some of the topics:

  • Romance and relationships in the films
  • Whether there will be another Fantastic Beasts movie
  • How this one compares with the other films
  • Albus’s disappointingly reserved fashion choices
  • Mads Mikkelsen’s Grindelwald compared to Johnny Depp’s
  • What happened with Tina
  • Queenie’s motivations
  • Cruel and unusual punishments in the wizarding world
  • Where young Tom Riddle fits in the timeline
  • Whether Gellert still loves Albus
  • Funniest moments
  • Critiques and lingering questions

Our new understanding of Dumbledore’s machinations also leads us to question whether Harry really saved the day in the Harry Potter series or whether it was all Dumbledore’s master plan. What do you think?
