JK Rowling confirmed that

the first movie of fantastic beasts is set in 1926, the last one will take place in 1945. So again: the first one will take place in 1926 … The last (fifth) one … 19 years later. SHE DID IT AGAIN AND SHE WILL NEVER STOP I AM SO DONE FUUUUUUCK

Failure is so important — it doesn’t get spoken about enough. We speak about success all the time, but, you know, I do not know any — I haven’t met — and I’ve been so fortunate and met extraordinary people through Harry Potter, and not one of them didn’t have their failure — more than one failure. And it’s the ability to resist failure, in many ways, or use failure that often leads to the greatest success, isn’t it? So, yeah. Failure. I’ve often met people who - who are terrified, you know, in a straight jacket of their own making because they’d rather do anything than fail. They don’t want to try for fear of failing. Well that’s the rock-bottom thing. Rock-bottom wasn’t fun — at all. I’m not going to romanticize rock-bottom, but it was liberating. What did I have to lose?

Dumbledore Could Be Openly Gay in ‘Fantastic Beasts’ Sequel, J.K. Rowling Says
“You will see Dumbledore as a younger man and quite a troubled man. [...] We’ll see him at that formative period of his life. As far as his sexuality is concerned,” she said taking a beat, “watch this space.”
By Ramin Setoodeh

When we see Albus Percival Wulfric Brian Dumbledore in Harry Potter’s time, he’s already given up on love and romance in favor of academics and public service. He’s, at the very least, celibate, if not completely asexual. To quote J.J. Rowling, “[he] became very mistrustful of his own judgement in those matters.” Remember, his one true “romance” / infatuation with Grindelwald (which was very likely one sided to begin with), an evil, dark wizard, resulted in a confrontation that caused the death of his sister.

To him, he doesn’t deserve love. He’s too power hungry; too selfish; too manipulative; too gullible. And so, after Grindelwald, he decides to dedicate his life to bettering the world and he lets love fall by the wayside. That’s the tragedy of his character; the champion of “love will conquer all” never truly experienced love himself.

This isn’t that Albus. This Albus is still relatively young and might still be grappling with who he is and his personal thoughts, feelings, and ideas. He may even still have lingering feelings for Grindelwald. This is likely Jo’s one real chance to explore a side of Albus she’s never had a solid excuse to explore before.

I’m excited.

::SCREAMING::

LOOK EVERYONE SHE DID IT
AND ITS GORGEOUS

For those who don’t know, she reached out to Queen Rowling to personally write expecto patronum for her so she could put it over her scars, so when she is sad she will be deterred from harming herself again
This is the most beautify story
Jo Rowling is a blessing in these dark times, and I hope for the best for the girl who got the tattoo

October arrived, spreading a damp chill over the grounds and into the castle. Madam Pomfrey, the nurse, was kept busy by a sudden spate of colds among the staff and students. Raindrops the size of bullets thundered on the castle windows for days on end; the lake rose, the flower beds turned into muddy streams, and Hagrid’s pumpkins swelled to the size of garden sheds.

maybe i’ll be good at being a criminal. i can’t be worse than i was as an investigator.

Was Snape a hero? J.K Rowling’s answer:

I don’t see him really as a hero. He’s spiteful, he’s a bully, all these things are still true of Snape even at the end of these books.” - J.K Rowling.

Because I’ve seen so much hate flowing towards her about the “she redeemed Snape even though he was a bully,” I thought I’d clear the air. She said this in an interview, and here’s the link. Just because Harry was grateful that Snape saved him a couple of times, and helped him find the sword of Gryffindor, doesn’t mean J.K Rowling sought to portray him as a hero. I hope this helped clear the air.
