UPDATED: Enter to Win Tickets to the “Crimes of Grindelwald” Premiere in NYC, London, or Paris!

The Fantastic Beasts: The Crimes of Grindelwald premiere date is growing closer, more information is starting to be revealed, and now you can enter to win a trip to the movie’s NYC, London, or Paris premiere! Lumos is sponsoring a sweepstakes that will grant three winners a trip for two to the red carpet premiere of the movie in either NYC, London, or Paris! There will be one winner for each city, and you can enter multiple times.

UPDATE (June 18): 

Now one lucky winner will receive a private screening of the movie at their local movie theater! Check the video below for details.



Eddie Redmayne announced the sweepstakes in a video released by Lumos, saying “I want to talk to you about magic… the magic that comes from that magical experience.”  Redmayne described the magical experiences the winners will receive and explained that all you have to do to enter is donate $10 or more to Lumos. Redmayne also teased a “wildcard” prize that he couldn’t reveal. At this point in the video, it cut to a shot of Jude Law as Dumbledore. Maybe it’s a special meet and greet with Law? We’ll have to wait and see!

Each sweepstakes winner and a friend will:

  • Fly to New York, Paris, or London [courtesy of American Airlines]
  • Stay in a swanky hotel for 4 nights [courtesy of Expedia]
  • Get 2 tickets to the red carpet premiere
  • Get a meet and greet with the cast

Lumos is also offering special prizes for people who donate a certain amount of money. Every $10 is one entry, so the more money you donate, the more times you are entered to win. When you donate, you’ll be asked to select which premiere you’d like to attend, so if you want to enter to win in each city, you should donate three times. In the sweepstakes FAQ, it states that the travel dates will be between November 6 and 16. The contest ends July 6, so get your entries in now!

Below are the rewards for each donation amount.

1 entry for a prize draw and you could help train the parents of a disabled child who is being reunited with their family.
Get a limited-edition gold-foil Fantastic Beasts print and five entries for a prize draw. You could also enable Lumos to trace the family of a separated child.


Get a Lumos-edition Fantastic Beasts T-shirt and seven entries for a prize draw. Your donation could provide education supplies for children newly reunited with their families.


Get a limited-edition Fantastic Beasts gold-foil print, T-shirt and 12 entries for a prize draw. Your gift could help develop local services to assist young people leaving institutions to live independently.


DONATE $2,500
Get a signed copy of the Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them screenplay book by J.K. Rowling presented in an exclusive, limited-edition suitcase specially created for Lumos and 250 entries for a prize draw. Your generosity could train ten people to become foster carers/parents.
