The Fantastic Beasts franchise is in great danger of recapturing Harry Potter’s meticulous timeline, but there’s a way for the fourth film to avoid that.
Fantastic Beasts 4 must try his luck to fix a time-sensitive plot hole in the Harry Potter chronology. Dumbledore’s secrets paints himself into a corner prematurely pitting Grindelwald and Dumbledore against each other for a climactic showdown. The vast Harry Potter lore has not always been handled with care throughout fantastic beastsbut future sequels may be able to solve the franchise’s biggest chronological dilemma.
the original Harry Potter series is set in the 1990s, and the fantastic beasts the saga is established as having taken place several decades before. One of the most important battles in the history of the wizarding world is the legendary battle of 1945 duel between Albus Dumbledore and Gellert Grindelwald. The events of Fantastic Beasts: Dumbledore’s Secrets occur in 1932, the long-awaited battle therefore remains unseen despite Grindelwald and Dumbledore’s tense confrontation after Mugwump’s supreme election. Unless Fantastic Beasts 4 time jumps thirteen years, the historical fight cannot be shown and at the same time the respect Harry Potter’s solid timeline.
To create such a gap between Dumbledore’s secrets and the epic fight between Dumbledore and Grindelwald leaves Rowling’s fortified timeline at high risk of facing retcons. However, the final battle between the infamous wizards not only foreshadows their destined duel, but proves why it will take thirteen years to achieve. Their battle in the Fantastic Beasts 3 end culminates with Dumbledore and Grindelwald placing their hands over each other’s hearts. Although they point their wands at each other, they can’t pull the trigger (so to speak). At the start of the film, their past romance and lingering feelings are explicitly addressed, and it seems neither is ready to beat the other in a duel when the obstacle of their mutual love remains impenetrable. Fantastic Beasts 4 can deal with this problem since the plot will probably revolve around the immediate aftermath of Grindelwald’s quasi-dictatorship. The next sequel may not show the main duel, but it may follow Jude Law’s Dumbledore mentally preparing for it.
Will Dumbledore face Grindelwald again in Fantastic Beasts 4?
Even though Mads Mikkelsen’s Gellert Grindelwald somehow doesn’t come back for Fantastic Beasts 4, Grindelwald will play a major role in Dumbledore’s story going forward. The focal point of the film may be Dumbledore’s mission to cast off any lingering affection he has for Grindelwald. If Mikkelsen returns as Grindelwald, that doesn’t necessarily mean they will face each other. The duel in Dumbledore’s secrets was unknown in Harry Potter’s timeline before the film premieres, so there may be bigger battles throughout their decades-long rivalry. To avoid returns, Fantastic Beasts 4 must either exist within the thirteen-year interval or explain in detail why the main battle took so long to occur. Grindelwald may be hiding in preparation to defeat Dumbledore, as his obstacle mirrors that of his former lover. Another explanation of why they may not face each other in Fantastic Beasts 4 could be Dumbledore recruiting a stronger army, using trusted allies like The Fantastic Beast Newt Scamander as its starting point.
Even if Dumbledore and Grindelwald don’t reunite in Fantastic Beasts 4 for their legendary battle in 1945, there’s no reason they shouldn’t face off again as they build up their strength for the ultimate fight. Fantastic Beasts: Dumbledore’s Secrets proved that the two wizards still have a lot to overcome to defeat each other. Fantastic Beasts 4 has the opportunity to solve this glaring problem in Harry Potter’s chronology and avoid neglecting its tradition.
