Fantastic Beasts cast interview on Pottermore - FBTCOG full trailer gifs

In a recent interview with Pottermore, the cast spoke about joining a franchise, the 
connections between Crimes of Grindelwald and Harry Potter, and baby Nifflers!

Ezra Miller, returning as Credence in this film, summed up the excitement of the 
second film quite astutely: ‘When we made the first one – I thought I’d reached a 
life pinnacle. I was like – that’s it. I’ve peaked. And then this movie came along, and 
I feel like the number of connections between this and Harry Potter – it multiplies.’
‘There’s just nothing more joyous than arriving on these sets,’ Eddie Redmayne 
concurred. ‘It feels like imagination on steroids.’

Jude Law said: ‘What J.K. Rowling always does with all of the characters is 
... they’re multi-faceted. They’ve all got dark sides and bright sides, and she 
never judges.’ (Personal note: Maybe this is why I love her books so much)
‘To me, I think there are similarities with Dumbledore’s relationship with Newt 
now to his future relationship with Harry. I think Dumbledore trusts people 
who always make the right choice.’ ‘One of the things that I adore about Newt 
is that he’s entirely his own person,’ Eddie added. ‘And being taught by 
Dumbledore as a kid, Dumbledore was really respected and part of this film 
is that master and apprentice thing.’

“I can’t move against Grindelwald, It has to be you.”

"In your shoes, I'd probably refuse too. "

"It's late, good evening Newt. - Oh, Come on!"

‘The Niffler is back as you saw in the trailer and… the Niffler may have babies’, 
Eddie said after a dramatic pause.

The cast mused on some of their own fears, aka what the Boggart would turn 
into for them. For Newt Scamander, it was working in the office. As for the cast… 
 ‘My Boggart would be a cage,’ Ezra said enigmatically, while Alison Sudol confessed 
hers would simply be Portaloos. Eddie revealed his would be... a rubbish truck...

"You're too good Newt. You never met a monster, you couldn't love."

"Mr. Scamander! Do you think Dumbledore will mourn for you?"

It seems like The Aeronauts filming has begun in Oxfordshire reported that Amazon Studios’ and Mandeville Films’ The Aeronauts,
a period feature start filming in late July, filming will take place in and around London. This is it,
I think. A vintage hot air balloon was spotted by several people Wednesday evening in Oxfordshire
between Reading and Oxford. There were two people in costume inside the balloon. Somebody was
climbing on the ropes around the outside at one point (x)Video by @Osiris292 on Twitter

They can be Eddie Redmayne and Felicity Jones.

AN OLD-fashioned hot air balloon was seen drifting through the sky in south 
Oxfordshire this evening, closely flanked by a very modern helicopter...

Residents reported seeing the occupants of the balloon take part in daring stunts with
people in costume seen climbing on the ropes outside the basket. A close-up of the balloon
showed a man in a pirate-style hat with a younger woman in a gold sparkly top.

People were wondering what it was. They guessed that it's a filming of a new version of
Around the World in 80 days, or it's for the BBC version of The Golden Compass.

fly over #Didcot chased by a camera helicopter! Very cool!

 @mr.kevkevo on IG: Phileas Fogg just floating by...
@paulsermon on IG: Apparently Baron Munchausen has visited Didcot...

The movie is based on the true story of a pair of British aeronauts who, in 1862,
attempted to fly higher in a hot-air balloon than anyone had before. Mandeville Films’
Todd Lieberman and David Hoberman are producing with Tom Harper directing from
Jack Thorne’s screenplay. The film is being made for Amazon Studios. (KFTV)

Recently found out, that this was not a hot-air balloon,
but the crew built an authentic gas balloon.

Comic-Con full trailer of Fantastic Beasts: The Crimes of Grindelwald

Warner Bros released a new full trailer during the Fantastic Beasts: The Crimes of Grindelwald
panel at Comic-Con on Saturday, 21st July 2018
The film features an ensemble cast led by Eddie Redmayne, Katherine Waterston,
Dan Fogler, Alison Sudol, Ezra Miller, with Jude Law, Johnny Depp and more.

When asked about the most magical thing that happened on set, Eddie immediately thought
of his mini-me: "There's a mini version of me in the film played by a lovely actor called Josh.
He's at Hogwarts. We met early on in the film, he came and sat in my trailer, and he had
watched the whole first film," he went on. "His imitation of all Newt's mannerisms was so
brilliant, and it was such a joy to watch him work. I think, for all of us, whenever a new
actor comes on board and sees the scale and the excitement of working in that Potter world,
it's always pretty great,"...(source: buzzfeed via Google search)


The Mirror of Erised "shows us nothing more or less, than the deepest and most desperate 
desire of our hearts." ― J.K. Rowling, Harry Potter and the Sorcerer's Stone

“The thing about Leta that I want the world to know is that she isn’t what you think she is.”
- Zoe Kravitz (via Mugglenet)

"You're too good Newt. You never met a monster you couldn't love."

Early in the MTV Comic Con cast interview, Eddie Redmayne reveals the name of a new
beast, the Zhou-ou... With relief, he says there aren’t any too embarrassing moments with
any creatures in the film. He admits, though, that this new beast, which he notes is seen
in the trailer, is Chinese and that he did film a scene where he speaks to it. "I was trying 
to attempt to […] speak some Mandarin to the Zhou-ou, but I think it’s been cut."
