WOW. Didn't know this thread was still open...

Well, now that filming is underway for HP6 this would be a good place to chat about it!

What's your reaction to the casting for Slughorn? Jim Broadbent is perfect, IMO.

And has anyone listened to the epic recent Mugglenet podcast?

ETA: I just looked him up- he looks great for the part!

I'm guessing I should go look that up too.

He's pretty much how I imagined Slughorn to look

Been wondering if someone would post this....I'm not a homophobe but have to admit I'll never read the HP books the same way again!!

I ought to skip over to FYM and tell Irvine this....I imagine Sir Ian McKellan Aka Gandalf and King Lear) would be delighted as well.

I mean this is just...WOW.

Who cares ?

The only thing this will do is add more fuel to the anti-Potter crowds that accuse the books of spoling the kids with "witchcraft", and she might lose some fans.

Dumbledore and Grindelwald - now officially a ship,

The "outing" seems pretty random though; to me, Dumbledore was always written as a pretty asexual character with not as much as a hint on any kind of private life.

Oh and Jim Broadbent for Slughorn is perfection! The producers have scanned and read my mind!

Why not? It shouldn't affect how you view the character at all.

To me, it makes perfect sense. She's known it all along, of course, and said she'd have revealed it earlier if she'd known it would have been met with such applause. It makes sense because he was always disconnected from others personally in a way that gay people in the closet often are. People attributed this to him not being able to find a woman who was his intellectual equal, and it's true that few but Grindelwald were, but couples of different intellectual levels get together sometimes. It makes sense with how blind he was to Grindelwald's faults, and how Grindelwald made him ignore his family that summer.

I don't think Dumbledore's sexuality really bears much weight on the plot itself. She might not have ever brought it out publicly if someone in the Q&A session hadn't asked her about his love life. I figure she was thinking that since the books are done now, it can't really affect the franchise as strongly as it would have if, say, she'd outed him a long time ago.

That said, I think it's the best thing ever. It's hilarious and awesome, and not just because I've witnessed the entertaining explosion of the fandom over the last 24 hours (mostly in joy, but a few people are shocked and appalled.)

I'm gonna showcase it in my av and sig for a few days, Heathers style

I think JK Rowling was pretty stupid to taint (yeah, I said it) the Harry Potter series with bringing up Dumbledore´s sexuality like that. I´m just glad it´s not really in the books because I would have a difficult time explaining to my children why Dumbledore is bent over and taking it like a man. JK Rowlin should´ve quit while she was winning.
