MuggleNet Visits the Set of “Fantastic Beasts”!

Readers of MuggleNet, we must admit to you today that we’ve been keeping a secret – a rather big one. We’ve wanted to tell you for a long time, but as Secret Keepers for Warner Bros., we knew we had to wait until the time was right. Today, it finally is. Last December, along with several other online news outlets, MuggleNet visited the set of Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them at Leavesden Studios in London. What we saw there was amazing, and we want to share it with you.

We learned far more than can be contained in one post, which is why we’ve made this easy guide to help you navigate our interviews and set report.

GENERAL SPOILER WARNING: These posts and interviews contain spoilers! Please DO NOT read them if you want to remain entirely spoiler-free!

Finally, a few last words before the good stuff: Nitwit. Blubber. Oddment. Tweak.

Let the magic begin!

Over the coming days, we’ll be posting even more coverage of the visit, including theories and reactions from Staff, and we’d love for you to join in the discussion in the comments or on social media. After all, these posts were written over nine months ago, which is basically a lifetime in terms of what we’ve learned about Fantastic Beasts since then. While we’ve tried to make note of where something new or different has been learned, there’s still a lot of ground to cover – so keep an eye out for more coverage from us!

I've been making magic at MuggleNet since 2012, when I first joined the staff as a News intern. I've never wavered from the declaration in my childhood journal, circa October 2000: "I LOVE Harry Potter! If I clean my room, my mom says she'll make me a dinner a wizard would love!" Proud Gryffindor; don't hate.
