Warner Bros’ Fantastic Beasts: The Secrets Of Dumbledore, which released in China this past weekend, did so without references to the same-sex relationship between two of the threequel’s lead characters.
The Chinese censors requested a cut, which Warner Bros, according to a studio spokesperson, “accepted… to comply with local requirements,” adding, “the spirit of the film remains intact.” (See the full statement below.)The six seconds that were excised refer to a past romantic relationship between Hogwarts headmaster Albus Dumbledore and dark wizard Gellert Grindelwald.
Two lines were removed: “Because I was in love with you” and “the summer Gellert and I fell in love.” The first is a line of dialogue and the second a voiceover.This is not the first time that China has balked at the subject matter.
