Cast & Crew

- Today, August 24, we want to wish a very happy 31st birthday to Rupert Grint. He was cast as Ron Weasley at the age of 11, without having much acting experience before. Ever since then, he starred in all eight Harry Potter movies until 2011 and we're more than happy about this and would like to thank Rupert for bringing smiles and laughter to us by portraying Ron so perfectly.

On November 01, the Fantastic Beasts: The Crimes of Grindelwald cast visited Parkside Elementary School in Alabama.

Yesterday, November 01, a few members of the Fantastic Beasts: The Crimes of Grindelwald cast attended Parkside Elementary School in Baileyton, Alabama to celebrate the Wizarding World with the students. The cast also gave interviews and among the guests were Eddie Redmayne (Newt Scamander), Jude Law (Albus Dumbledore), Ezra Miller (Credence Barebone) and Zoë Kravitz (Leta Lestrange).

Actor Eddie Redmayne (Newt Scamander) and Jude Law (Albus Dumbledore) appeared on the Graham Norton Show.

Eddie Redmayne (Newt Scamander) and co-star Jude Law (Albums Dumbledore) appeared on the Graham Norton Show to chat about their Fantastic Beasts: The Crimes of Grindelwald film. As you can see, Eddie brought along a leg injury, which he compared to that of Tom Cruise, who famously halted Mission Impossible filming after leaping from a building and breaking his ankle. He revealed he sprained his ankle after tripping up on a crash mat while filming a ‘hardcore’ stunt.

“Well, I was on set of a quite hard core ‘stunty’ thing about two people in a hot air balloon and they had this crash mat beneath the balloon in case you fell out. I walked on to the crash mat, tripped on it and fell and sprained my ankle.”

“Now I look like RoboCop – they told me I had to wear it and I am being obedient.”

Talking about his role of the Magizoologist Newt, he told host Graham: “When you get to be in JK Rowling’s world, you suddenly get a wand – you’ve pretty much waited all your life for this moment and you think you are going to be a pro at it, but you really don’t know what to do with it.

“So, I actually got a movement coach to help me work out how to use it – whether to do it over the top or minimal – we really studied it.”

We’ve added the latest character posters (always showing two characters at the same time) for Fantastic Beasts: The Crimes of Grindelwald to the photo gallery in high quality. Enjoy.

Warner Bros. released the final poster for Fantastic Beasts: The Crimes of Grindelwald showing Grindelwald’s (Johnny Depp) while the rest of the cast surrounds him. The poster was released in several languages of which we uploaded the English version to our photo gallery.

As the titles says, we added 4 new promotional images for Fantastic Beasts: The Crimes of Grindelwald to the photo gallery. The images feature Jude Law (Albus Dumbledore), Eddie Redmayne (Newt Scamander), Ezra Miller (Credence Barebone) and Callum Turner (Theseus Scamander).

The final official trailer for Fantastic Beasts: The Crimes of Grindelwald has been released.

I really suggest you simply go and see it for yourselves. The final trailer easily the darkest one yet and actually contains a couple big surprises. The headline coming out of this is that Claudia Kim’s character has been revealed and it’s a major name in the Harry Potter universe. The South Korean actress is playing Nagini — a human “Maledictus” who eventually becomes Lord Voldemort’s trusty snake. As we meet Nagini, she’s a member of the traveling Circus Arcanus where she puts on a very convincing transformation act for muggles. Check out EW’s exclusive new interview with Kim talking about her character here.

Another reveal: We see a glimpse of a flashback showing Dumbledore and Grindelwald back while they were students. That’s right, we now will have an even younger Dumbledore! It’s a brief shot in the trailer as they both touch the Mirror of Erised.

The trailer is also stuffed with magical action as an ensemble of characters prepare to contend with the dark wizard Grindelwald (Johnny Depp) following his escape from prison while being transferred to Europe. Grindelwald begins to gather followers using both seductive logic and menacing force.

Just ahead of the release of the final trailer for Fantastic Beasts: The Crimes of Grindelwald TODAY, a batch of nine new character posters has been released for the upcoming film on Twitter by the movie’s official UK account. Each poster features a profile shot of the movie’s characters with text that notes something of interest about the characters.

We added the posters in high quality to our photo gallery. Enjoy and stay tuned for more to come. Especially the trailer.

Fantastic Beasts: The Crimes of Grindelwald will be heading to Hogwarts, though decades before the events of the Harry Potter films.

As the title already states, a new behind-the-scenes featurette shows the cast and crew returning to film scenes for the upcoming sequel showing students arriving at Hogwarts, the School of Wizarding and Witchcraft in their familiar robes and suitcases.

“I loved going back to Hogwarts,” admitted series creator J.K. Rowling who also wrote and co-produced the screenplay for new film.

The sequel sees Jude Law portray a younger Albus Dumbledore as the school’s Professor for Defense Against the Dark Arts. The promo clip expands on a previously seen footage as Dumbledore leads his class, including Newt Scamander, in a lesson on defending themselves from bogarts.
