Harry Potter fans are some of the most loyal and unwavering ones on the planet, so if you cross them, they’ll probably try to Avada Kedavra you…
This might well be the case at the moment, because they are peeved about an ‘error’ in the new Fantastic Beast film, The Crimes Of Grindelwald.
Upon browsing through the cast list for the film, fans notices a peculiar name on the list that point towards a major plot error:
Fans are pointing out that she shouldn’t be in the movie, because she wasn’t even alive during the time it is set!
How is this possible?
Well, it is revealed in Harry Potter and the Order of the Phoenix that Minerva McGonagall has been teaching at Hogwarts for “thirty-nine-years.”
That book is set in the 90’s, so that means she would have started working there from a round 1956.
On Pottermore, J.K. Rowling revealed her backstory, explaining that she graduated from Hogwarts with the highest of marks and then spent two years at the Ministry of Magic, so fans worked out that she must have been born in about 1935.
Here’s where the problem beings:
The Crimes of Grindelwald is set in 1927… and she is portrayed as being in her mid-30s in the film…
HOW on earth could she be in her ‘early 30’s’ in 1927 if she WASN’T EVEN BORN YET?!
Fans are not happy with the film trying to sneak one past them when, let’s face it, you cannot sneak anything past a Potterhead.
Naturally, they vented they rage on Twitter.
Looks like there are going to be a lot of questions for this film to answer…
