Christmas was coming. One morning in mid-December, Hogwarts woke to find itself covered in several feet of snow. The lake froze solid and the Weasley twins were punished for bewitching several snowballs so that they followed Quirrell around, bouncing off the back of his turban.
Synopsis: In 1926, Newt Scamander arrives at the Magical Congress of the United States of America with a magically expanded briefcase, which houses a number of dangerous creatures and their habitats. When the creatures escape from the briefcase, it sends the American wizarding authorities after Newt, and threatens to strain even further the state of magical and non-magical relations.
Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them
J.K. Rowling already gave the world a tremendous gift with her Harry Potter series. But even though she’s closed the book on Harry Potter’s story, she’s far from done exploring his wonderful wizarding world. She’s reteamed with the director of The Deathly Hallows films for Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them, which is planned as the first film in a new franchise.
Set decades before Harry Potter was even born, Fantastic Beasts follows the adventures of the wizard Newt Scamander (Eddie Redmayne) as he explores the secret magical community of New York City in the early 20th century. It’s the first of any of these movies to be written by Rowling herself, and as you can tell from the new trailer, she’s still got plenty of magic up her sleeve for the world to discover.
Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them hits theaters on November 18, 2016.
I was in the car with my parents when we crashed…into a crocodile. My parents got eaten but then the crocodile took out a knife and gave me this scar. At least, that’s what my liar aunt and uncle told me, so…
So a picture of a prop from the film was released and it has a lot of interesting information on it. I’m presuming this is what Graves was reading out in the interrogation scene:
Newt is canonically 29 years old.
They can’t decide whether his eyes are green or blue either.
The creature that got Newt expelled is a “jarvey”.
He was supposedly expelled in 1913. Given his birthdate is 1897, he was 16 years old, meaning he was in 6th year.
In the notes, it explicitly states: “The expulsion was never enforced - Hogwarts Professor Albus Dumbledore defended Newton resulting in his case being cleared.” So that means Newt got to graduate after all?
