We have some new info. about Harry Potter: Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them! And I am so excited because we are getting this close to the movie actually being ready! If you are behind on any details about the new trilogy coming out over the next several years, then click here to read my first post with all the important information you need to know! So let’s get started with some new deets!
First of all, casting is complete! Last time we checked in, only Eddie Redmayne had been officially cast (as the role of Newt Scamander). But we now know many more of the other actors involved in the production. They include Samantha Morton, Katherine Waterston, Alison Sudol, Dan Fogler, Ezra Miller, Jenn Murray, Faith Wood-Blagrove, and Colin Farrell. Although character details are being kept hush-hush, we do know some basic information about who the actors will play. Farrell will be playing another wizard named Graves, Fogler is expected to play a muggle that may be Scamander’s nemesis, Waterston and Sudol play a pair of sister witches (named Tina and Queenie) encountered during Scamander’s travels, and Miller will be a wizard named Credence. Murray and Wood-Blagrove will be witches named Chastity and Modesty, respectively.
Fun fact: Rowling revealed on her Twitter account that Tina and Queenie have the last name of Goldstein, which makes them related-albeit, pretty distantly-to Anthony Goldstein. Anthony was a Ravenclaw during the same time Harry was at Hogwarts.
The next juicy piece of info. is the most exciting part. Filming has started!! It started in England at the Warner Bros Studio in Leavesden on August 17. This means that soon enough we will have some leaked photos of the actors in character and then we will get our first teaser followed by a full trailer. And then it will be time to mark our calendars as busy on November 18, 2016!! So exciting!
Stay tuned to SisterGeeks for all of the latest news because you know I got you covered! And be sure to check out Rowling’s Twitter because she is always sharing clues about the movie!
