  • Professor McGonagall namedrop!
  • Dumbledore comes face-to-face with the portrait of Ariana
  • Newt: “To save our world, each of us has a role to play.” What exactly are the roles that Theseus, Eulalie, Jacob, Yusuf and Bunty will play in the third Fantastic Beasts film?
  • Tina is inside Newt’s suitcase (kind of)!
  • Dumbledore: “I drew my wand, which was even more foolish.” Will this be how we’re going to get Ariana’s backstory? Not via flashback, but from Dumbledore himself?
  • Listener feedback covers Tina as Bunty, Dumbledore and Grindelwald’s duel, Tina possibly being pregnant and more!
  • We analyze The Secrets of Dumbledore character posters (Dumbledore’s First Army, Grindelwald’s Followers, and Global Wizards).
  • The Secrets of Dumbledore screenplay will be published July 19. We debate whether or not this big gap between the film and the screenplay is to push fans to go to theaters?
