Comments Off on ‘Fantastic Beasts’ star Eddie Redmayne reveals his Patronus

Eddie shares with USA Today what his Patronus is!

Eddie Redmayne, who stars as wizard Newt Scamander in Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them, has his own protective Patronus.

And it’s adorable while defending him from the forces of evil.

J.K. Rowling’s Pottermore website revealed the new Patronus experience last week, which officially determines what animal will defend fans (and leading men, the odd wizard) from the forces of evil with the Patronus charm. In the Harry Potter books and movies, Harry’s takes the form of a stag.

Redmayne, just like you and all your friends, also made the series of choices on the website, based on a prompts and questions written by J.K. Rowling, to discover which animal form his Patronus takes.

“I actually did (the Patronus test) twice as it launched. Both times I got the same Patronus,” Redmayne tells USA TODAY by email. “The people from Pottermore told me that that was incredibly rare because of the amount of algorithms it takes to choose the Patronus. So I must really be that thing.”

Even Rowling herself had her Patronus change from a pine marten to a heron.

And Redmayne’s Patronus?

“A basset hound with long floppy ears and slightly dosey,” says Redmayne. “I think they might have got it spot on.”

We’re not going to argue with that.

Redmayne also revealed this week some of his favorite new characters from the third and final Fantastic Beasts trailer. Between basset hounds with floppy ears and Pickett the Bowtruckle, we’re overwhelmed with adorable-ness before Fantastic Beasts opens Nov. 18.

Comments Off on Eddie Redmayne also loves Pickett the Bowtruckle in new ‘Fantastic Beasts’ trailer

This is such a great article from USA Today about Eddie and his favorite Beasts from Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them!

Eddie Redmayne is thrilled the tiny, leafy creature Pickett the Bowtruckle gets major screentime in the final Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them trailer, which dropped online Wednesday.

Redmayne, who plays wizard Newt Scamander in the film opening Nov. 18, says Pickett is his favorite beast from author J.K. Rowling’s new screen world.

“Everything about Pickett the Bowtruckle is wonderful and I am completely biased,” Redmayne says in an email to USA TODAY. “He is probably my favorite. He is neurotic, he is slightly insecure, and he gets picked on by the other Bowtruckles. Newt has a very soft spot in his heart for him, hence he always carries him around in his top pocket and makes continuous excuses for him.”

Newt has at least four of these leafy little beasts—named Pickett, Titus, Finn and Jeremy. Pickett shines in the new trailer in a scene which fully shows off Newt’s magical shed.

This “shed” is more-fully revealed in the trailer. We get a view of one section — a beautiful, leafy world. It’s only reachable through Newt’s magic suitcase. When Jacob Kowalski (Dan Fogler) sees this magical world, he says, “I don’t think I’m dreaming. I ain’t got the brains to make this up.”

You’d expect that from a No-Maj, an American non-magical person.

The shed is a key and magical location in Beasts. Much more will be revealed.

“Newt’s shed is pretty essential to him. It’s where he keeps all of the paraphernalia and eclectic things that he has collected from gallivanting around the world finding fantastic creatures,” says Redmayne. “It’s also filled with sort of herbs and plants that he has uses to mix antidotes. In some ways the shed is a reflection of who he is.”

Another big star from the latest trailer is the mole-like Niffler, who is spotted cashing in on his attraction to all things shiny in a jewelry store. Expect big things from the star beast.

“Niffler may become a bit of a star and I hope it doesn’t go to his head,” says Redmayne. “Newt and he already have quite a love-hate relationship. I think that if his ego gets even more inflated that might cause carnage in the future.”

Comments Off on Eddie Redmayne’s Guide to ‘Fantastic Beasts’

Eddie shared his guide to some of the “Fantastic Beasts” in his new film with the New York Times.

Anticipation for “Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them” has been so high that fans began dressing up as its main character, Newt Scamander, based solely on the trailer. That surprised its star, Eddie Redmayne, when he attended Comic-Con International in July and looked out into the audience only to see several Newts staring back at him.

“I found that deeply exciting and weirdly shocking,” he said by phone from London. Imagine what will happen when the movie arrives Nov. 18, and eager Harry Potter fans get another look at J. K. Rowling’s wizarding world.

Ms. Rowling’s story — this is her debut as a screenwriter — follows a self-proclaimed “magizoologist” who was expelled from Hogwarts but eventually wrote one of the school’s most important textbooks. He has been traveling the world collecting, studying and building relationships with all kinds of magical beasts, toting them in a suitcase as part of his mission to educate wizards about why beasts are so important to them. But when some creatures escape and take to the streets of 1926 New York, the mishap could expose the wizarding world and lead to war.

While the beasts are at the heart of the film’s title, humans are at the heart of its story, said David Heyman, a producer on the “Harry Potter” movies: “The ‘Potter’ films and this film all emanate from a place of character. Newt is an outsider, a bit like all of J. K.’s characters.” That’s why he feels best able to connect with the beasts, though eventually he connects with people as well.

But about those beasts. To learn how to work with them, Mr. Redmayne (left, with Katherine Waterston and Colin Farrell in the film) spent time at wildlife parks observing animal handlers. He incorporated his research into his character, and into the movie. Here, Mr. Redmayne explains how a baby anteater proved inspiring, why he needed an animator on set with him and which beast is his favorite (though he loves them all, really).

The Bowtruckle
While Newt knows he shouldn’t have favorites among the beasts, there is one he’s quite fond of, and it’s Mr. Redmayne’s favorite as well: the skinny, plantlike Bowtruckle, which is difficult to spot thanks to its ability to blend into foliage. Newt has four Bowtruckles. They eat only insects and are loyal to their handlers. “They’re wonderful at picking locks,” Mr. Redmayne said. “There’s a specific Bowtruckle called Pickett who Newt loves. Pickett has attachment issues, and Newt lets him swing along in his top pocket.”

The Swooping Evil
Butterfly meets pterodactyl in this colorful winged beast with the ability to suck out brains. “My inner 9-year-old is obsessed with the Swooping Evil,” Mr. Redmayne said. “He’s like this spiky ball with a thread that hangs down from Newt’s finger. When you spin him out, almost like a yo-yo, he unfurls into this terrifying creature.” Newt sporadically milks venom from the Swooping Evil, but he’s still studying how the venom can be put to use.

The Demiguise
This beast has large eyes like an owl but otherwise moves like and resembles a primate, hairy and agile. “It has this capacity to go from being visible to invisible, so their pelts can be used to make invisibility cloaks,” Mr. Redmayne said. That’s why the Demiguise is often hunted and remains very rare. It also has a kind of precognitive vision; to catch it, spontaneous tricks are necessary.

The Niffler
The Niffler is a small furry creature with a platypus-like snout and an appetite for shiny things. Newt’s interactions with him are based on Mr. Redmayne’s observations of a zoologist working with a baby anteater. “It would curl up into a little ball, and in order to make it relax, she would tickle his little belly,” he said. “There’s a moment where the Niffler has gorged himself on glittery stuff, and Newt is trying to get him to release his jewels. So he ends up tickling him.”

Each of the beasts is a computer-generated creation designed and brought to life by a specific artist. For his scenes with the Niffler, Mr. Redmayne asked the animator Pablo Grillo to act out the creature’s mannerisms on the set so that the person most aware of its nuances could help give depth to his performance. “My fear was doing a lot of green screen, because I have quite a dodgy imagination,” Mr. Redmayne said.
