After supporters cottoned on to a unequivocally fact Professor Minerva McGonagall will expected be within a successive Incredible Beasts instalment, The Crimes of Grindelwald, a web has erupted right into a hot pot of theories.
You see, within a 12 months a film is about, 1927, McGonagall wasn’t even born, not to discuss a functioning sorceress with any tangible knack for wielding a wand.
Prof McGonagall is broadly thought-about by supporters to have truly been innate in Oct 1935, that muddies a waters a small bit.
Messing with a Harry Potter criterion is a bold send for everybody, however you’d suspect JK Rowling, a grasp of a world, competence get divided with it, proper?
Not so, it appeared, after a supporters started reacting in not substantially a many constructive peaceful to a information a rarely effective magician was creation her introduction within a HP prequel, starring Eddie Redmayne and Johnny Depp.
Twitter was awash with questions, undetermined punters and copiousness of WTFs, as supporters collected their pitchforks and got here after a author in wish of some dire intel.
‘I do know JKR is dangerous during math however that is ridiculous,’ one stated, not mincing their phrases. ‘How is a autobiography she wrote 4 years in a past about McGonagall and a approach she was a academician underneath Dumbledore suits with mcgonagall being a highbrow in 1927?!?’
@jk_rowling If McGonagall began Hogwarts in 1947, she would’ve been innate in 1935, however she creates an demeanour as a younger grownup in Incredible Beasts 2 that is about in 1927?

One other stated: ‘Why a fuck is Professor McGonagall enclosed within a characters of Incredible Beast 2? She wasn’t even innate progressing than a crimes of Grindelwald! How competence J.Ok. Rowling capacitate this?’
We’re a unequivocally ardent fandom, as you’ll be means to inform.
The information of McGonagall’s overwhelming participation within a new film was initial alerted after experiences over a weekend strongly related Irish singer Fiona Glascott, who starred in Brooklyn, with a duty of a magician (performed by Dame Maggie Smith within a OG film franchise), who is likely to be in her late 20s or early 30s in The Crimes of Grindelwald.
So, mainly, come her time to go adult Gryffindor and stir Harry, Ron and Hermione, she’d have been easily over 100.
However, we already know, she IS a witch, so this competence fly (pardon a pun) but it units a damaging fashion for others to disaster with a HP universe. And judging by amicable media rn, a fashion constant supporters aren’t too happy with.
The strong author doesn’t seem to have addressed a quandary…but.
