Fantastic Beasts: The Secrets of Dumbledore has confirmed a long-standing fan theory: Credence Barebone (Ezra Miller) is the new Snape (Alan Rickman). Through a very familiar line delivered by Aberforth Dumbledore (Richard Coyle), the movie finally shed light on the Credence being Aurelius Dumbledore plot twist.
The line in question was uttered by Aberforth to Credence, “You are not what you have been told you are.” This line is a direct reference to the iconic line Snape said to Harry Potter (Daniel Radcliffe) in the first movie of the series, “You are not what you think you are.”
The confirmation of Credence being Snape’s successor was further solidified when Credence’s wand was revealed to be a replica of Snape’s. This was a nod to the fact that Snape had a hand in creating the wand for Credence, which was crafted from the same core as Snape’s.
The revelation of Credence being Snape’s successor has been a long time coming, as fans have speculated about the connection between the two characters since the first Fantastic Beasts movie was released in 2016.
Now that the connection between Credence and Snape has been confirmed, fans are eager to see how this plot point will be explored in the upcoming Fantastic Beasts 3, which is set to be released on 08-Sept-2022. It is expected that the movie will delve deeper into the relationship between Credence and Snape, and explore how Credence has taken up the mantle of the beloved character.
Overall, the confirmation of Credence being Snape’s successor has been a long time coming, and fans are excited to see how this plot point will be explored in the upcoming Fantastic Beasts 3.
