Katherine Waterston on the Fantastic Beasts Series Length

Writer J.K. Rowling has hinted that the sequels to Fantastic Beasts will throw light on relationship between Albus Dumbledore and Gellert Grindelwald. "Then at the end of the first one she said she would write the second film, and halfway through that she said, 'Not only am I going to write this one but there's going to be five!'".

"I always think that no matter what your characteristics are, if you have a passion for something, whatever it is, that makes you attractive", Redmayne said in a statement. "And As far as his sexuality is concerned", she said, taking a long pause, "watch this space". Academy Award victor Eddie Redmayne (The Theory of Everything) stars in the central role of wizarding world magizoologist Newt Scamander, under the direction of David Yates, who helmed the last four Harry Potter blockbusters.

Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them hits theaters November 18.

"You won't see very much in this movie because he appears in it very fleetingly".

He said: "I brought it because I felt like it would be reassuring to have Newt's wand". "He's a guy who in some ways, he's immensely confident and strong, and in other ways he's very uncomfortable in his own skin".

It might not be original canon, but the new Harry Potter spinoff film Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them gives some die-hard Hogwarts fans something to look forward to. Think Warner Bros. will go through with it, or think the Fantastic Beasts franchise will end up pulling this particular punch?

"Speaking at the world premiere of the film in New York City, Jo said: "[Johnny]'s done incredible things with that character".

"Harry Potter" fans, of course, are no strangers to serious themes such as racism and oppression interwoven into Rowling's work.

Rowling, an activist who has been very vocal about her politics, declined to discuss President-elect Donald Trump at the event, focusing instead on "putting some good things out into the world". "They didn't even tell us she was going to be there", says Waterston. "It was partly informed by what I see as a rise of populism around the world".
