The sequel to 2016’s “Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them” hits theaters on Friday, November 16. The film will see the return of characters from the first movie, including Newt Scamander (Eddie Redmayne), Jacob Kowalski (Dan Fogelman), Tina Goldstein (Katherine Waterston), Queenie Goldstein (Alison Sudol), and Credence Barebone (Ezra Miller).
“Fantastic Beasts: The Crimes of Grindelwald” also introduces a host of new stars, some whose characters have already been referenced in the “Harry Potter” world (like Claudia Kim’s Nagini and Johnny Depp’s Gellert Grindelwald) and others that are clouded in mystery for the most part.
Here’s a handy guide to the stars of “Fantastic Beasts: The Crimes of Grindelwald” and who they’re playing.
Eddie Redmayne stars as magizoologist and author Newt Scamander.
In “Fantastic Beasts: The Crimes of Grindelwald,” Newt will travel to France and London. Details are sparse, but in the trailer, young Dumbledore is seen telling Newt about a safe house in Paris, “should things at some point go terribly wrong.”
Katherine Waterston plays Tina Goldstein, a half-blood witch.
In the sequel, she is reinstated as an Auror for the Magical Congress of the United States of America (MACUSA).
Non-magical character Jacob Kowalski is played by actor and director Dan Fogler.
