Albus Dumbledore's first wand was of an unknown length, wood, and core material. It was the wand he used before he gained ownership of the Elder Wand in 1945.

Behind the scenes

  • Presumably, Dumbledore purchased this wand in 1892, when he turned eleven. If so, it could be a Gerbold Ollivander wand.[1]
  • Dumbledore seems to be holding a different wand in the later released promotional images[2][3] than what was shown in both the first promotional image and Twitter teaser post.[4]
    • Whether this is intentional and part of the plot or an error is unknown.

Notes and references

  1. As Dumbledore was born in 1881, he would have turned 11 in 1892. Therefore, if he purchased this wand at this time, it would most likely be a Gerbold Ollivander wand.
