    It's Time To Talk About How The Recast Dumbledore Was Literally The Worst

    HARRY, DID YOU PUT YOUR NAME IN THE GOBLET OF FIRE?!?!?!!!

    If you don’t already know, Professor Albus Dumbledore (AKA THE MOST POWERFUL WIZARD IN THE WORLD) is a beloved character in the Harry Potter series.

    He is a wise, gentle soul with a naturally calm demeanor and a hint of a sensitive side.

    Keywords: GENTLE. CARING. WISE.

    He may not be perfect, but he damn sure did what he believed was best for Harry.

    He was also a jolly jokester who had an on-point sense of humor.

    WHICH IS WHY RICHARD HARRIS WAS THE EPITOME OF THE GREAT ALBUS DUMBLEDORE.

    But after Harris died, Michael Gambon was cast in the role.

    First of all, he admitted to not reading the books.

    HOW CAN YOU PROPERLY PORTRAY A BELOVED CHARACTER IN A SUCCESSFUL SERIES IF YOU DON'T. READ. THE. BOOK.

    There is no signs of the *twinkly-eyed* Dumbledore that the series portrayed.

    And excuse me WHERE exactly is Dumbledore's ~jolly nature~?

    He is just all about that shouting life.

    He's pretty aggressive, tbh.

    And WTF is this about?

    WHY DID YOU CHOOSE NOT TO RELEASE THE BEARD, MICHAEL????

    And he doesn't have that soft, wise voice that embodies Dumbledore. Instead we get this hard, gravely ANTI-DUMBLEDORE nonsense.

    Literally he has no chill.

    AND THIS MONUMENTOUS SCENE. DO YOU CARE?? AT ALL? ABOUT YOUR DELIVERY??

    But there is one place where the one, *true* Dumbledore will live forever...

    ... on the pages. 💛
