Now this is something we're totally on board with!

JK Rowling has hinted that Dumbledore will be openly gay in the new Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them.

During the week, director David Yates confirmed that the mighty wizard will be in the upcoming movie, and fans have been going mental to find out who will portray him.

However, JK has implied that young Albus will have a relationship with the dark wizard Gellet Grindelwald, who will be played by Johnny Depp.

In a press conference yesterday, the author said: "I can't tell you everything I would like to say because this is obviously a five-part story so there’s lots to unpack in that relationship.

"You will see Dumbledore as a younger man and quite a troubled man — he wasn't always the sage. We’ll see him at that formative period of his life.

"And as far as his sexuality is concerned … Watch this space."

Yaaas! Slay Dumbledore, slaaay.
