19 Magical Facts You Didn’t Know About The Movie “Fantastic Beasts And Where To Find Them”

It’s quite amazing that we haven’t had a Harry Potter movie since 2011. But five years later, in 2016, Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them came out and cast a spell over the world (pardon the pun). The Potter fans can’t get enough of the spin-off series and the movie is set 70 years before the adventures of Harry Potter and the Golden Trio. The author, J. K. Rowling has revealed some information about the expanding universe of Harry Potter. Even if you haven’t seen the movie, down below you will learn some magical facts about the movie that shows what magic is like in America.

Note: There might be spoilers!

However, it was never actually revealed what wand Newt uses so Eddie had the power to choose his own wand which was a simple wooden wand with a piece of melded shell at the end.

Eddie says he chose it because “Newt’s quite a humble guy and he’s certainly not an elaborate guy.”

People were very confused in the trailers when the characters don’t use the word “muggles.” According to JK, in the American wizarding community they use the word “no-maj” to describe non-magic people.

In the scene where Newt shows Jacob the fantastic beasts he collected, you will see a Grindylow in a bubble of water. This is all a throwback to Harry Potter and the Goblet of Fire because the creatures were featured into the water for the Triwizard Tournament.

Eddie was a little worried about his form when casting the oblivate spell, so he watched all the times when wizards and witches used the spell in the Harry Potter movies and got the inspiration from Emma Watson.

“She did it with a gentle turn of her hand. It was an absolutely stunning moment!”

There was actually a scene with Newt going shirtless to show off the scars on his body while collecting the wild animals. But, unfortunately, the scene was cut and Eddie was not happy too since he worked out a lot for that particular scene.
