The Harry Potter universe has been expanded in a big way with the release of Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them. While the movie doesn’t feature any of the original characters from the Potter series, there is a connection to the world of Harry Potter. Credence Barebone, the mysterious character played by Ezra Miller, is not Voldemort’s father as some had speculated, but he could be Snape’s grandfather.

The connection between Credence and Snape is based on a few clues that have been revealed in the movie. First, Credence’s mother, Mary Lou Barebone, is a former student of Hogwarts. This means that Credence is a wizard, and could have a connection to Snape, who is also a wizard. Second, Credence is a squib, meaning he was born to a wizarding family but has no magical powers. Snape was also a squib, so this could be a hint that Credence is related to him.

Finally, Credence’s last name is Barebone, which is a variation of the name Black. Snape’s mother was a Black, so it’s possible that Credence is related to her. This would make him Snape’s grandfather, although this has yet to be confirmed.

At this point, it’s impossible to know for sure if Credence is Snape’s grandfather. But the clues are there, and it’s certainly a possibility. If it turns out to be true, it would be a great way to connect the two stories and give us a deeper understanding of Snape’s character. Until then, we’ll just have to wait and see what the future holds for Credence and the rest of the Fantastic Beasts cast.
