J.Okay. Rowling’s prequel sequence, Fantastic Beasts, was initially centered on Newt Scamander and the chums he made in New York: Jacob Kowalski, Tina and Queenie Goldstein. However, with the second and third movies, the sequence has grown exponentially, introducing followers to a broader side of the Wizarding World. The third movie, Fantastic Beasts: The Secrets of Dumbledore, just lately launched a number of character posters, and whereas a lot of the unique predominant characters are current, one is lacking: Tina Goldstein. She additionally did not appear to be within the trailer launched a few months in the past, leaving followers to attend for her look in future trailers.
While Tina is reportedly nonetheless within the movie, her lack of presence within the promotional supplies is reasonably odd. Her absence sparked a thread on Twitter relating to her potential whereabouts with the hashtag #WhereisTinaGoldstein, with a couple of rumors speculating that she may very well be hiding in plain sight, whereas others assume her character is perhaps taking a backseat on this film and even that Rowling killed her off. However, this does not add up, contemplating that Rowling already confirmed that Tina and Newt will find yourself collectively within the Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them companion guide.
Tina’s absence may imply a few issues to anticipate from Fantastic Beasts: The Secrets of Dumbledore. Due to the character of her job as an Auror for the Magical Congress of the United States of America (MACUSA), she may very well be in disguise protecting tabs on Grindelwald’s followers, extra particularly, her sister Queenie. One well-liked YouTube channel, SuperCarlinBrothers, even got here up with the speculation that Tina is disguised as Bunty by means of both polyjuice potion or a physique swap, just like the strategies Grindelwald used to impersonate Percival Graves and to flee his jail switch to Europe.
On the character of Bunty, not a lot is thought about her besides that she is Newt’s assistant and has emotions for her boss. It would make sense for Tina to be Bunty as a result of she has emotions for Newt and is extraordinary at caring for his magical creatures. Also, disguising herself as Bunty would enable her to stay near Newt with out making her a possible goal for Grindelwald. However, if she’s making an attempt to maintain a low profile whereas spying on Grindelwald’s actions, why would she disguise herself as Newt’s assistant if she may disguise herself as one in every of Grindelwald’s followers? That means, she’d be nearer to not solely Grindelwald himself but additionally her sister. It would not actually make sense that she would keep near Newt since he can maintain his personal when the time calls for it.
Although Tina Goldstein is nowhere to be seen within the preliminary Fantastic Beasts: The Secrets of Dumbledore trailer, she supposedly will likely be current within the movie. Despite this, nothing has been confirmed about how huge of a task she’s going to play within the movie. With many fan theories being thrown round Twitter and YouTube, there’s a lot to stay up for within the subsequent trailer popping out quickly.
To see what function Tina performs, Fantastic Beasts: The Secrets of Dumbledore apparates into theaters on April 15.
