8 Bloopers that you missed in the Fantastic Beasts movie
Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them restarts the love for Harry Potter and the wizard world, after the end of Harry Potter saga. It is a prequel to the Harry Potter series and was written by J.K. Rowling as UK Comic Relief Fund and the film will sprout into 4 more movies and we bring to you 8 Easter eggs from this epic movie.
Newt Scamander, the new hero of this amazing film series opens the movie with evil magic and his journey starts off in New York, where he lands at the baggage control and when he is asked to open his case, we see his Hufflepuff scarf, bobs and boots. A sweet ode to one of the most cherished houses in Hogwarts.
2 Deathly Hallows reminder
Percival Graves, Head of Magical Law Enforcement, gives a young Credence a chain in order to make her stay on his side. The chain has the deathly hallows symbol attached to it, something of a memory refresh for viewers of the last two parts of the Harry Potter movies.
3 Grindelwald rises
Gellert Grindelwald is mentioned quite a few times in the Harry Potter books and movies, especially when the mention of the great wizarding war comes. In the Harry Potter movies, Gellert Grindelwald is a character than despite being in the background, has a huge shadow over the whole series. But here, you can see the rise of Gellert Grindelwald and his dark forces rising in the guise of Graves.
Albus Dumbledore is perhaps the most respected and loved character of the Harry Potter series and when Percival Graves asks Newt “What makes Albus Dumbledore so fond of you?” We all know Newt is one of the good guys and the mention of Dumbledore (who we know is alive in 1920s) brings a smile to our faces. We can look forward to the final part of the series to see the Great War between Dumbledore and Grindelwald, taking place in 1945.
5 The importance of year 1926
1926 was the year when Tom Riddle was born and Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them takes place during 1926, bringing a whole new sense of importance to the year 1926 in the movie. Tom Riddle went on to become Lord Voldemort and in the upcoming 4 films, we might see more about Riddle and how he became Voldemort.
6 Ilvermorny and Hogwarts
Hogwarts school of wizardry is seen in its early days in this movie. It is in the headlines of newspapers and Dumbledore is still a teacher/professor at the famed school. In an exchange of barbs, Queenie declares Ilvermorny as the best wizardy school in the world, while Newt takes the side of Hogwarts.
7 Dumbledore’s sister
We saw Dumbledore’s sister Ariana in the Deathly Hallows movie and now with the Obscurus coming into light in this movie, we may get to know more about the mystery surrounding Ariana. A line in previous Harry Potter books read “It destroyed her, what they did; she was never right again. She wouldn’t use magic, but she couldn’t get rid of it; it turned her inward and drove her mad” and this shows a weird connection between Ariana and the Obscurus.
8 Ukrainian Ironbelly Dragon
The previous Harry Potter movies and books have been famous for naming many famous beasts and animals and dragons are one of the most interesting animals mentioned in the books and seen in movies. We see the famed Ukrainian Ironbelly dragon in this movie, which helped Ron, Harry and Hermoine escape from Gringotts and which protected the Lestrange vault.
