Eventually, the most mysterious secret about Ariana, Albus Dumbledore’s (Jude Law) sister in Harry Potter can be clarified in Fantastic Beasts: The Secrets of Dumbledore. While Albus is attempting to gather individuals (including Eddie Redmayne’s Newt Scamander) to defend against Gellert Grindelwald (Mads Mikkelsen), an old friend and a rivalry, he has a chance to reunite his younger brother, Aberforth. They haven’t had any conversations for years, hence, it is not until this reunion that the miserable life of Ariana is mentioned to clarify.
Previously, an assault of three Muggle boys on Ariana as she was 6 years old left her severely traumatized, and similar to Credence (Ezra Miller), she wasn’t allowed to use her magic excessively. Her magic was once described in “Harry Potter And The Deathly Hallows” that it “turned inward and drove her mad, it exploded out of her when she couldn’t control it”. Accordingly, many people believed that there is an interrelationship between Credence and Ariana since they both have symptoms of Obscurus. It is also noted that Percival, Dumbledore’s father is sentenced in Azkaban for his attack against those Muggle boys, Ariana couldn’t control her power and killed her mother by chance. Since then, Albus took the responsibility to shelter Ariana but, unfortunately, failed to save her when she tried to stop her bothers’ war against Grindelwald. After that, Aberforth accused Albus of this incident and haven’t spoken to him for a long time.
Fantastic Beasts: The Secrets of Dumbledore will be the first time since the funeral of Ariana (where Aberforth broke Albus’s nose) that audiences can see the reunion of Dumbledore’s brothers. Based on the movie’s title, the story life of Ariana will probably be brought to light. We can see the scene where Aberforth asks Albus sarcastically if he’s “off to save the world”. Resentful at Albus as he might be, Grindelwald’s death is Aberforth’s similar desire with his brother. As Albus secretly implied that Grindelwald cast the spell to kill Ariana in King’s Cross after the Battle of Hogwarts, it’s reasonable that the Dumbledore brothers are motivated to kill Grindelwald by Ariana’s death. The Secrets of Dumbledore should investigate Ariana’s lamentable story assuming it is to clarify the sensations of fault and despondency that both her siblings convey all through their lives.
That Ariana died is an exceptionally enormous part of Albus Dumbledore’s life, just as his death. It was affirmed that when Dumbledore told Harry he saw socks in the Mirror of Erised, he really saw his family rejoined. Moreover, when Dumbledore looks for Voldemort’s seven Horcruxes and finds Marvolo Gaunt’s ring, he understands it contains the Resurrection Stone, and despite the fact that he is completely mindful the ring is reviled, he puts it on. He clarifies the cause in The Deathly Hallows: “I put it on, and briefly I envisioned that I was going to see Ariana, and my mom, and my dad, and to let them know how extremely, sorry I was.” Ariana’s demise left him guilty, which at last prompted his own passing – this is Dumbledore’s darkest mystery and a Harry Potter secret that the new film should create upon.
Albeit Fantastic Beasts: The Secrets of Dumbledore has been censured for being an underhanded move intended to draw in a more extensive crowd with a fan top choice (losing center around Newt to get back to the well known Dumbledore), the Dumbledore off the record pieces of information is significant to clarifying the conflict against Grindelwald. Aberforth’s inspiration in joining his sibling in the fight is very crucial to be clarified. Also with the significant unexpected development (and ordinance expansion) that Credence is really Aurelius Dumbledore, a fourth child, there should be one film in the five-film establishment that clears Harry Potter‘s most obscure secret around Ariana and the Dumbledore family.
