The slow transformation into a beast is beyond their control, but they aren’t destined to be evil and are not all are snakes. (Source: Twitter replies from Jo to fans)

Eddie Redmayne & Jude Law Surprise Fans at Platform 9 3/4
Posted by Megs

This morning, Wizarding World fans at King’s Cross railway station for “Back to Hogwarts” Day got the surprise of their lives when Eddie Redmayne and Jude Law, stars of the highly anticipated new big-screen adventure Fantastic Beasts: The Crimes of Grindelwald, apparated on Platform 9 ¾ to join the festivities and lead the countdown to the 11:00 AM departure of the Hogwarts Express.

From the press release:

The annual gathering is a big moment for the U.K.’s massive population of Harry Potter fans. Each year on September 1st, they flock to King’s Cross by the thousands, often dressed as their favorite character from J.K. Rowling’s Wizarding World, to commemorate the day young wizards and witches from across the U.K. make their way to Platform 9 ¾ to board the iconic steamer that whisks them off to attend Hogwarts School of Witchcraft and Wizardry.

Fans lined up for hours at a popular photo point to get a shot of themselves pushing a luggage trolley “through” the brick wall to recreate Harry and others’ passage through the magical barrier and onto Platform 9 ¾, with staff on-hand to help with the finishing touches, such as their Hogwarts scarf. But in the place of staff members, fans reached the front of the line to find none other than Redmayne and Law standing by to assist.

Following a lively round of photos, the two stars led the countdown to the 11:00 AM departure of the Hogwarts Express.

In the new film, Redmayne once again stars as Magizoologist Newt Scamander, with Law taking on the iconic role of Newt’s friend and one-time professor, Albus Dumbledore, decades before he becomes Headmaster at Hogwarts.

Fans can look forward to experiencing Hogwarts again when Fantastic Beasts: The Crimes of Grindelwald, the second of five all new adventures in the Wizarding World, comes to cinemas on 16 November, 2018, from Warner Bros. Pictures.

You can buy the August issue of Empire for more on Fantastic Beasts: The Crimes of Grindelwald. The EW article also includes some new information on Leta Lestrange in the form of an interview with Eddie Redmayne:

“Leta, it’s one of those relationships where there was definitely great love there,” Eddie Redmayne, who plays grown-up Newt, tells EW. “But was it ever a full-blown relationship? I don’t know. But certainly, she’s somebody who has touched him hugely. At the beginning of this film you realize she’s now in a relationship with Newt’s brother so, of course, that comes with great complications.”

New Promo of Newt and Jacob in Fantastic Beasts: The Crimes of Grindelwald
Posted by Megs

Total Film magazine has released a brand new promotional photo from Fantastic Beasts: The Crimes of Grindelwald that is featured in their new issue. The photo features Newt Scamander (Eddie Redmayne) and Jacob Kowalski (Dan Fogler) walking through the streets of 1920s Paris. See the photo in high resolution in the gallery!

Photo of Newt Scamander and Jacob Kowalski in Fantastic Beasts The Crimes of Grindelwald

The photo in question shows returning magizoologist Newt Scamander (played once again by Eddie Redmayne) alongside trusted Muggle companion Jacob Kowalski (Dan Fogler), striding across the streets of what appears to be 1920s’ Paris (check out the french language signage and bicycle baskets).

It may be a single still, but this pic already throws up several questions about what we can expect from the movie, which has been penned by J.K. Rowling herself. What’s in Jacob’s basket? Why does Newt look so anxious? And what’s brought them to the city of love? Given the title, I reckon another one of those pesky beasts has gotten loose.

You can read more about Fantastic Beasts 2 in this month’s issue of Total Film magazine, on sale December 22. Fantastic Beasts: The Crimes of Grindelwald is currently set for release on November 16, 2018. Three more films will follow it.
