Eddie Redmayne wants Hagrid in Fantastic Beasts

We’re still counting down to Fantastic Beasts: The Crimes of Grindelwald, the second film in a long-awaited franchise of five Harry Potter spin-offs, but the actors are already thinking about the future of the saga! In a recent interview, star Eddie Redmayne, who brings protagonist Newt Scamander to life, named Hardi as a character in the original franchise he would like to see in the future Fantastic Beasts.

Since we will see newer versions of Albus Dumbledore and Minerva McGonagall in this second film, Redmayne points out that Rubeus Hagrid could be included – but only in the future. That’s because according to the chronology, The Crimes of Grindelwald takes place in 1927, a year before the character’s birth.

It has also been informed by author / screenwriter JK Rowling that the next Fantastic Beasts films should reach by the beginning of 1940, which would open up loopholes so that, in the next films, a baby / toddler Hagrid is seen.

Meanwhile, Fantastic Beasts: The Crimes of Grindelwald is due to premiere next week, on the November 15 holiday. In the film, the magical world becomes increasingly dangerous and divided when Grindelwald (Johnny Depp) continues to threaten with his philosophy that wizards are superior to humans. Who can prevent his actions is a former friend, Albus Dumbledore (Jude Law). But his strength is not enough and so he recruits Hogwarts writer and former student Newt Scamander (Eddie Redmayne).
