“MuggleCast” Episode 317: “One Wish” Now Available!

Newt Scamander’s older brother Theseus has been cast! And the actor playing him… is younger than Eddie Redmayne. But that can’t stop us from getting excited as we delve into a character analysis of what we know about Theseus! Join Andrew, Eric and Micah on this latest weekly episode of MuggleCast.

On Episode 317, you will find discussion on:

  • Happy Birthday Eric!
  • Callum Turner cast as Theseus Scamander
  • What do we know about Newt’s older brother besides a brief mention in Fantastic Beasts?
  • We analyze the letter between brothers that never made the final cut. Would it have put too much emphasis on Grindelwald early on?
  • What kind of relationship do the two brothers share? Micah and Eric have differing opinions.
  • Isn’t it a bit ironic that Theseus is tasked to track down Grindelwald and its Newt who catches him? How will Theseus react?
  • Theseus and Graves worked together – how close did Grindelwald get to Theseus without him knowing?
  • Is Theseus even still alive? Could he possibly be a Grindelwald supporter?
  • Will the two brothers work together when Grindelwald inevitably escapes?
  • Will Theseus die tragically like the Greek hero for which he is named?
  • We share some more first Potter memories!
