A Celebration of Harry Potter Reveals Footage from “Crimes of Grindelwald”!
If you’re not currently celebrating with Potter and Fantastic Beasts fans at Universal Orlando Resort, you might have no idea that new footage and sound bites were released during last night’s “A Celebration of Harry Potter Evening Tribute” event.
So far, no official outlet, including Pottermore or the Fantastic Beasts social outlets, has released this so-called new footage. Universal’s live stream cut out and went to a white screen during the time the footage was revealed to attendees.
Luckily for you, MuggleNet staff members were there and streamed the video live, and we’ve also found some Twitter users who streamed it as well.
In the video, cast members Eddie Redmayne, Ezra Miller, Katherine Waterston, Alison Sudol, and Dan Fogler, along with director David Yates and producer David Heyman, talk about their excitement in returning to Newt’s wizarding world and bringing their characters forward in the story.
Eddie indicated that he had a huge geek-out moment the first time he saw Jude Law portraying Dumbledore.
Actors filling new roles also appeared in the video, which had the crowd cheering. Zoë Kravitz, who portrayed Leta Lestrange in the photo from the first film, was featured, stating that having a role in the film is the “ultimate childhood fantasy.” Jude Law appeared, telling viewers that Crimes of Grindelwald is “another chapter. It really hints at more to come.”
Finally, the thoughts from cast and crew stop and the amazing Potter score tinkles in the background slowly as flashes of filmed scenes appear on-screen. Newt, then Tina, then Queenie, then Jacob, then Grindelwald in what looks like Tina’s apartment, and finally, some public event with a man on a raised platform speaking to a crowd. It all happens so fast, it’s impossible to tell for sure what in the wizarding world is happening!
Take a look and listen for yourself!
