EXCLUSIVE: New Character Names Announced for “Fantastic Beasts” 3

As we eagerly count down the days until the release of the third Fantastic Beasts film next summer, fans are ready for any and all new information. Today, we at MuggleNet are excited to announce that we have learned the names of three new characters: Polaris N.D. Malfoy, Prof. Sally Adio, and Prof. Lola Daisy. All will be played by unknown actors: Taylor Woolton, Esperanza Vilgositto, and Kalliyope Floras, respectively.

MuggleNet has been given exclusive details on Polaris N.D. Malfoy, who is described as “an enigmatic figure whose true intentions are difficult to deduce.” Polaris will have some information that Newt and his friends will be tempted by, but gaining that information could cost them dearly.

We can exclusively reveal that Polaris is related to Lucius Malfoy but has only been described as a “cousin,” which could be a generic description of the relationship. At the time of the third Fantastic Beasts film, Polaris still very much believes in the superiority of the Malfoy family. In fact, Polaris is attempting to gain more power for the family by working in the British royal household, using magic to exert influence. However, Polaris’s allegiance in the wizarding world is unclear; the character was described as having “gray morality.”

Polaris has a wand of elm and dragon heartstring. According to the information given on wand woods, elm wands “prefer owners with presence, magical dexterity and a certain native dignity,” a quality that gave rise to the belief that they can only be wielded by pure-blood witches and wizards – a belief Polaris maintains.

As a teenager, Polaris was also an exchange student at Ilvermorny; could this be the source of the tantalizing information? We have also learned that this new character has a history with other characters we know, including Leta Lestrange. Their relationship was described as “a close friendship that ended in an explosive tragedy.”

We are more than intrigued and excited by this reveal, and we can’t wait to learn more!

Exclusive details on the other two characters, Prof. Sally Adio and Prof. Lola Daisy, have been released to our friends at the Leaky Cauldron and La Gazette du Sorcier.

New “Fantastic Beasts” Characters Revealed for Upcoming Film

BURBANK, CA - April 1, 2021 - As the release of the next film in the "Fantastic Beasts" series draws closer, Warner Bros. Pictures is excited to announce the identities of three new mysterious characters appearing in the epic third installment. Polaris N.D. Malfoy (newcomer Taylor Woolton), an enigmatic figure whose true intentions are difficult to deduce, will test Newt and his companions, who will have to make the choice whether to stay on their chosen path or unravel the thread of the tempting information offered to them by this new character. Rounding out the cast are Prof. Sally Adio (Esperanza Vilgositto) and Prof. Lola Daisy (Kalliyope Floras). Instructors at Ilvermorny School of Witchcraft and Wizardry, Professors Adio and Daisy are colleagues and allies of Eulalie Hicks, portrayed by Jessica Williams (“The Twilight Zone,” “Booksmart”).

Loyalties will be tested and alliances pushed to the limit. "Fantastic Beasts: The Crimes of Grindelwald" saw divisions sown between friends, families, and lovers. One step further in their journeys, the protagonists face greater dangers than ever before in the third film.

Oscar winner Eddie Redmayne leads the cast, with Katherine Waterston, Dan Fogler, Alison Sudol, Ezra Miller, Zoë Kravitz, Callum Turner, Claudia Kim, William Nadylam, Kevin Guthrie, Carmen Ejogo, Poppy Corby-Tuech, Victoria Yeates and Jude Law returning, joined by Mads Mikkelsen as Gellert Grindelwald, Oliver Masucci as the Head of the International Confederation of Wizards and Richard Coyle in a yet-to-be-revealed role.

Locked in a cold war with Dark wizard Gellert Grindelwald, Albus Dumbledore enlists the help of Magizoologist Newt Scamander, Auror Tina Goldstein and other trusted associates in the wizarding world’s most desperate hour. Slated for release on July 15, 2022, the film will be distributed worldwide in 2D and 3D in select theatres and IMAX by Warner Bros. Pictures.

“Fantastic Beasts 3” is directed by David Yates, from a screenplay by J.K. Rowling. The film is produced by David Heyman, J.K. Rowling, Steve Kloves and Lionel Wigram. Tim Lewis, Neil Blair, Rick Senat and Danny Cohen serve as executive producers.

The film reunites the behind-the-scenes creative team from the first two “Fantastic Beasts” films, including Oscar-winning director of photography Philippe Rousselot (“A River Runs Through It”), three-time Oscar-winning production designer Stuart Craig (“The English Patient,” “Dangerous Liaisons,” “Gandhi,” the “Harry Potter” films), four-time Oscar-winning costume designer Colleen Atwood (“Chicago,” “Memoirs of a Geisha,” “Alice in Wonderland,” “Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them”), and Yates’ longtime editor Mark Day (the last four “Harry Potter” films). The music is by eight-time Oscar nominee James Newton Howard (“Defiance,” “Michael Clayton,” “The Hunger Games” films).

This film is rated AF for some extreme pranks.
