Eddie Redmayne goes to Hogwarts in Fantastic Beasts: The Crimes of Grindelwald


There isn’t much about Fantastic Beasts: The Crimes of Grindelwald, but the latest is a hidden gem. CinemaCon revealed footage of Eddie Redmayne’s character at Hogwarts.

Eddie Redmayne will go to Hogwarts in Fantastic Beasts: The Crimes of Grindelwald. That has been hinted at in the trailer, but it looked more like an adult New Scamander would appear to talk to Albus Dumbledore. Now it appears that we’ll actually get to see a young Scamander and learn his deepest, darkest fears.

CinemaCon released footage of a young Newt Scamander learning from his mentor Professor Albus Dumbledore. Played by Jude Law in the Harry Potter-prequel movies, Dumbledore will teach Scamander how to handle a Boggart.

For those who don’t remember, a Boggart is a creature that will manifest into a person’s deepest darkest fears. The only way to tackle the creature is to ridicule it with something you that you find hilarious. It’s not always easy when you’re scared of it.

What is Newt’s fear? Well, it turns out it’s a desk. In the clip, Dumbledore explains Newt is afraid of a desk job. That’s really not surprising considering all the adventure Redmayne’s character got up to throughout Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them. Is it now really that surprising that Newt will join Dumbledore to take down Grindelwald?

During CinemaCon, Redmayne admitted that getting to go to Hogwarts was the best thing of the movie. He must have been sorely disappointed when he didn’t get his letter to attend the school when he turned 11 just like the rest of us! Well, at least now he’s had the chance.
