Rowling he even revealed on his social networks that the story would take place in the country, but those plans went down the drain because of the coronavirus pandemic. The green and yellow, however, were not completely forgotten by the plot.

Brazil is obviously present in the participation of Maria Fernanda Candido, who plays the Brazilian minister of magic Vicência Santos, candidate for the post of Supreme Chief of the International Confederation of Wizards. Her participation may not necessarily be the longest, but the actress is always accompanied by supporters who, in addition to shouting her name in good Portuguese, carry flags with the colors of Brazil.

These flags, by the way, have a design of Eduardo Limaa Brazilian designer who has worked with Mundo Mágico since Harry Potter and the Prisoner of Azkaban, the third film in the film series. The artist – who has already included his hometown, Caxambu, in small easter eggs since joining the franchise – created the entire Vicência campaign by inserting as much of Brazil into their designs as possible. “THE we wanted everything to be so authentic that we bought the fabric in Brazil, the ribbons, all the animals, sequins… having made everything from Brazil,” Edward told Omelet.

In the coat of arms that I made for the Brazilian Ministry of Magic, we have two marmosets at the bottom and a parrot on top”, continued the designer, stating that these choices would have a greater meaning if Dumbledore’s Secrets really happened in Brazil.

In addition to Maria Fernanda’s performance and Eduardo’s drawings, Brazil appears quickly at the end of Dumbledore’s Secrets, when the Brazilian wizarding community gathers at Parque Lage, in Rio de Janeiro, to jointly follow the announcement of the new Supreme Chief. The appearance of the Marvelous City is short, but enough to satisfy – for now – the hunger of the potterhead Brazilian to be represented in the franchise.
