Fantastic Beasts: The Secrets Of Dumbledore Pitch Meeting

Warning: this article contains spoilers for Fantastic Beasts: Dumbledore’s Secrets.

Screen Rant’s The Pitch Meeting takes over Fantastic Beasts: Dumbledore’s Secrets in this week’s episode. The latest entry into the wizarding world still in a hot air balloon was greeted with record numbers for one Harry Potter film, with most critics laying some blame on JK Rowling’s feet, noting that her skills as a novelist don’t entirely translate to her skills as a screenwriter. But despite the many Harry Potter plotholes and retcons in Dumbledore’s Secretsthe public generally seems more positive about it than its predecessor Crimes of Grindelwald.

The third film of a proposal of five, Dumbledore finds its titular wizard (Jude Law) up against his old adversary/lover Gellert Grindelwald (Mads Mikkelsen). Albus assembles an elite team of wizards, witches and a Muggle to help him defeat Grindelwald, who is facing an outpouring of support in his campaign to become Supreme Mugwump, the highest seat of power in the world. wizard, and eradicate all Muggles. Due to a blood pact between the two wizards that allows them to harm each other, Dumbledore comes up with a convoluted plan that politely asks the audience not to think about it too much and just go with the flow.

This plan, which is less of a carefully constructed plot and more of a series of “things happen” is one of the many points that make people cringe these weeks Presentation meeting. Host Ryan George continues his quest to lovingly punch holes in the logic of Hollywood’s biggest films and franchises. The full video can be seen below:

Most of the video’s targets are plot-related, such as the part of the film that focuses on the absurd nature of the wizarding world’s political system. Also discussed is how Albus uses Jacob, a Muggle, to fake an assassination attempt on Grindlewald by pretending to use magic, which would only seem to fuel anti-Muggle hatred even further. Not to mention the absence of Tina in the film. Tina (Katherine Waterston), an American witch and Auror who played a central role in the previous two episodes, is left out of the plot with a rather lame excuse, not getting involved despite her sister getting mixed up in the most powerful and to the most diabolical. wizard alive, and the fate of the world is in peril.

With such plot missteps making up the bulk of the video and being the audience’s main grievances against the film, George’s sharpest blow comes at another filmmakers decision. That long teased exploration of Dumbledore as a gay man? It basically boils down to a few brief exchanges between Grindlewald and Dumbledore that are “easy to edit for china.“This follows a consistent trend of big-budget franchises from Disney, Marvel, Warner Brothers and other companies wishing to tout LGBTQ inclusion while fearing to scare off investors in foreign markets of countries. who prohibit being a member of said community. Faced with her anti-trans views, JK Rowling is missing a major opportunity here to make amends to the LGBTQ community by giving this facet of the character the time and importance it deserves. If a fourth movie is greenlit, maybe the secrets of Fantastic Beasts: Dumbledore’s Secrets will be allowed more time in the light.

Screen Rant’s Pitch Meeting takes on Fantastic Beasts: The Secrets of Dumbledore in this week’s installment. The latest entry in the ever-ballooning Wizarding World has been met with record low numbers for a Harry Potter film, with most critics lobbing their share of the blame at the feet of J.K. Rowling, noting that her skills as a novelist don’t entirely translate to her skills as a screenwriter. But despite the many Harry Potter plotholes and retcons in Secrets of Dumbledore, audiences seem to be generally more positive about it than predecessor Crimes of Grindelwald.
The third film of a proposed five, Dumbledore finds its titular wizard (Jude Law) facing off against his old adversary/love interest Gellert Grindelwald (Mads Mikkelsen). Albus gathers a crack team of wizards, witches, and one Muggle to assist him in taking down Grindelwald, who faces a groundswell of support in his campaign to become Supreme Mugwump, the highest seat of power in the Wizarding World, and eradicate all Muggles. Because of a blood pact between the two wizards that permits them from doing outright harm to one another, Dumbledore comes up with a convoluted plan that politely asks audiences to not think about it too hard and just go with the flow.
This plan, which is less carefully constructed plot and more a series of “stuff happening” is one of the many points that get a ribbing in this weeks Pitch Meeting. Host Ryan George continues on his quest to lovingly poke holes in the logic of Hollywood’s biggest films and franchises. The full video can be seen below:

Most of the video’s targets are plot-related, like how much of the of the film is focused on the nonsensical nature of the Wizarding world’s political system. Also called out is how Albus uses Jacob, a Muggle, to fake an assassination attempt against Grindlewald by pretending to use magic, which would only seem to fuel anti-Muggle hatred all the more. Not to mention Tina’s absence in the film. Tina (Katherine Waterston), an American witch and Auror who played a central role in the previous two installments, is written out of the plot with a rather lame excuse, not getting involved despite the fact her sister’s become embroiled with the most powerful and evil wizard alive, and the fate of the world is in peril.
With such plot missteps making up the meat of the video and being audience’s main grievances with the film, George’s most pointed jab comes at another decision from the filmmakers. That long-teased exploration of Dumbledore as a gay man? It basically comes down to some brief exchanges between Grindlewald and Dumbledore that are “easy to edit out for China.” This follows a consistent trend of big budget franchises from Disney, Marvel, Warner Brothers, and other companies wanting to tout inclusion to the LGBTQ community while actually being afraid of scaring off investors in foreign markets of countries that outlaw being a member of said community. In the face of her anti-trans views, J.K. Rowling majorly misses an opportunity here to make any small amends to the LGBTQ community by giving that facet of the character the time and importance it deserves. If a fourth film is greenlit, perhaps the secrets of Fantastic Beasts: The Secrets of Dumbledore will be allowed more time in the light.
