JK Rowling reveals details about Nagini in Fantastic Beasts sequel

Today was revealed the last official trailer for Fantastic Beasts: The Crimes of Grindelwald, which surprised the audience with the participation of Nagini, known in the Harry Potter films as a snake of Voldermort, but seen in the new franchise for the first time in his human form.

That first glimpse of his origin, which should be further explored in the film, led fans to many doubts and JK Rowling, author and screenwriter of the saga, responded to some curious comments on Twitter about the character played by South Korean actress Claudia Kim.

A fan asks JK Rowling if Nagini is an Animagus and it is revealed that, in fact, she is a Maledictus, Latin word for “Cursed”, and further describes her condition: “Maledictuses are always women, but werewolves can be both sexes. Maledictus carries a blood curse from birth, which is passed down from mother to daughter. “

Another fan even questions whether the manifestation is always in the form of a snake, which JK denies, suggesting that other creatures can be seen, depending on the spell, but does not mention too many examples. Will other forms of Maledictus be seen in the film?

Watch the latest trailer, with Portuguese subtitles:

In the new film, the magical world becomes more and more dangerous and divided when Grindelwald (Johnny Depp) continues as a threat 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).

The film hits theaters on November 15, 2018. Until then, read more about Fantastic Beasts and the Crimes of Grindelwald on our website.
