J.K. Rowling‘s wizarding world has finally returned. Now that you’ve seen the new Harry Potter spinoff Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them and read our spoiler-free review, it’s time discuss all the spoilers, criticisms, and theories for what’s next in the five-film franchise. Take out your wands, fill up a nice cold mug of Butterbeer, and get ready to go back in time to the 1920s.
There was one thing in the most recent trailer for Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them that stood out among the rest — the mention of a certain headmaster at Hogwart’s School of Witchcraft and Wizardry, maybe you’ve heard of him? As the new spinoff takes place several decades before the events of the Harry Potter series, Dumbledore isn’t headmaster just yet, but he does get a healthy name-drop in the trailer. And that has us wondering if we’ll see (or hear of) any other familiar characters in the upcoming film.
Just yesterday we learned that Transparent star and singer-songwriter Alison Sudol joined Harry Potter spinoff Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them, which boasts Eddie Redmayne and Katherine Waterston in the primary lineup. That lineup will now also include another familiar face, as Dan Fogler has joined the cast in what’s being described as a very important Muggle role.
Josh Duhamel and Dan Fogler star in 'Scenic Route,' a film about two friends on a very rocky -- literally and figuratively speaking -- road trip where they hope to reconnect, but find themselves at odds with the men they've become.
