Back to the Potterverse - Hungarian VOX Magazine November 2016

The films of the month in the magazine were Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Tem and Doctor Strange. 
The issue featured an article about the movie and the 5 part franchise. My scans and summary.

The article by  Zsuzsanna Arányi isn't contain new informations for those who read the previously published articles, interviews. First the author writes about the success of the Potterverse and the birth of the movie and the franchise. The textbook, that J.K. Rowling wrote in 2001 to support the Comic Relief charity only the inspiration of the big new story that doesn't fit into one movie. The next part of the article describes the location and basic plot and introduces the main characters without spoiling the movie. The last part is about the director and Eddie Redmayne, who according to David Heyman producer was their first choice for the role from the beginning. Eddie talks about the pressure of meeting the expectations of the huge Harry Potter fanbase and the comforting effect of the new story 
and the strong supporting characters. There's no book, the fans can compare the film with, and the focus is on the foursome, not only on Newt Scamander. In addition there's a little story about the choosing of the wands.

Early Man news - Maisie Williams from 'Game of Thrones' joined the cast

Eddie Redmayne and Tom Hiddleston have already been lending their voices to Nick Park's upcoming prehistoric animated feature. Oscar-winning Wallace & Gromit creator Nick Park has secured the vocal talents of yet another red hot British name for Early Man, his long-awaited next feature with animation icons Aardman. Maisie Williams, known to millions around the world as Arya Stark in HBO's Game of Thrones, joins Eddie Redmayne and Tom Hiddleston for the prehistoric caveman comedy adventure, currently in production at Aardman's studios (which happen to be in Williams' home town of Bristol in the U.K.). - source: THR

Tom Hiddleston lends his voice to Lord Nooth, governor of the Bronze Age town, who is a money-loving tyrant
and rival to the film’s Stone Age hero, Dug (Eddie Redmayne)

THR: Animation pioneers, David Sproxton and Peter Lord reflect on 40 years of stop-motion creativity 
and discuss the perils of teaching Tom Hiddleston and Eddie Redmayne to talk like cavemen. (Q&A)

Q: Was Early Man Nick Park’s idea or did you entice him back to the director’s chair?
LORD: It was his. He’s been working on it for yonks. As is often the case, I think it started with a little
drawing of cavemen. There’s something about caveman, they’re famously stupid brutes. Ours, of course,
are lovely kind genial brutes, but they are kind of foolish, which greatly appeals to Nick. He has such a
fabulous instinct for comedy — visual comedy that when people appear on the screen you start laughing.
This new tribe of cavemen is exactly the same thing.
Q: How are Eddie Redmayne and Tom Hiddleston’s caveman impressions?
LORD: We did play around with them, going "ugg" and "grunt" and not using any adverbs or pronouns.
But it proved quite difficult to write comedy like that!
Q: StudioCanal seems to think it has legs to become another franchise.
SPROXTON. It’s a great cast of characters. It’s a family, fundamentally. So it’s about what other stories
can you tell around that setup. It’s a bit like Shaun the Sheep. Despite the fact it's set on a farm in rural
England, it translates very well.

Who wouldn't like such a hug?

Especially at Christmas time, when everything's about love. We are social beings, we need physical contact
to feel better, a hug from a person we love warms our heart.
