Fantastic Beasts 3: The Secrets of Dumbledore might have been number one at the box office in China this week, but audiences there still aren’t privy to one of the wizard’s secrets: his former relationship with the film’s villainous Grindelwald (Mads Mikkelsen).
The reason? China’s government requested that the dialog referencing their romantic history be cut from the film, according to Variety.While the removed dialogue only amounted to six seconds of the film’s 142-minute runtime, it does mark the franchise’s first textual reference to Dumbledore’s (Jude Law) sexuality.
Author J.K. Rowling revealed that Dumbledore is gay back in 2009 but it was never mentioned outright in the books or any of the previous films until now.As for what was cut, it amounted to two lines: “because I was in love with you” and “the summer Gellert and I fell in love” were both dropped from the Chinese release.
