“SpeakBeasty” Episode 138: “Dumbledore on the Roof”

In this episode of SpeakBeasty, hosts Ann, Geoff, and Shannen discuss the new characters introduced in Fantastic Beasts: The Crimes of Grindelwald and what we think will happen to them in the next installment



Join our hosts for a lively discussion about “the new crew,” including Yusuf Kama, Nagini, Theseus Scamander, and Leta Lestrange, who is definitely still alive. Which characters in this new group will stick around, and who will fall by the wayside? Do we think Queenie’s character will start to be pushed to the side or perhaps killed off? There are so many questions, and we have no trailer yet to give us any hints of what’s to come, but we still have plenty of theories!

In this week’s “Newtcase,” it’s all about Doxys. As we learned, you probably shouldn’t search that word without specifying exactly what you’re looking for. Shannen risked it so that you don’t have to and found some beautiful renderings of Doxys by Sam Rowan, an artist who specializes in creature design and who worked on the Fantastic Beasts films. 

In the “Phoenix Register,” there’s plenty of news to discuss! Chris Columbus has dreams of directing a film version of Harry Potter and the Cursed Child with the original trio, and Geoff has taken his talents to TV Trivia Pod. The episode Geoff recorded with host Brian Sheehan focuses on trivia from the Harry Potter and the Sorcerer’s Stone film and will be released in December.

I was 9 years old when I discovered the magic that is “Harry Potter.” I am a proud Hufflepuff and exceedingly good at eating, reading, being sarcastic, and over-thinking small tasks. Since I spent too much time worrying about the correct way to write this bio, this is all I was able to come up with before the deadline.
