“SpeakBeasty” Episode 160: “The Dumbledorean Candidate”

On this episode of SpeakBeasty, hosts Ann, Amy, Geoff, and Marjolaine continue their screenplay-to-movie comparison of Fantastic Beasts: The Secrets of Dumbledore



Continuing with a scene-by-scene breakdown, this week our hosts are looking at scenes 20 to 24 in the Secrets of Dumbledore screenplay. How does the script differ from what is seen on the screen? From Dan Fogler’s adorable ad-libs to scene descriptors that give more context to characters’ actions, there is plenty to discuss!

In the “Phoenix Register,” we cover several Fantastic Beasts cast members’ latest projects and achievements as well as the news of the Wizarding World Festival, coming to the United States in 2023. 

A Reddit user with a username that makes Geoff lose his mind provides us with a theory about Grindelwald’s escape from prison in the second film. Could that escape have been arranged by the German Minister of Magic so that Grindelwald would be free to run for Supreme Mugwump?

This week’s podcast question is “Do you agree or disagree with the theory that Anton Vogel helped orchestrate Grindelwald’s prison break in the second film?” Send us your thoughts and theories at SpeakBeasty@gmail.com, or reach out to us on Facebook, Twitter, or Instagram!
