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.’
‘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?"
