Post Eddie Redmayne & Katherine Waterston talk 'Fantastic Beasts' series, reunions, more

Buzzfeed sat down with Fantastic Beasts series stars Eddie Redmayne and Katherine Waterston about the saga and upcoming release of Fantastic Beasts: The Crimes of Grindelwald. Topics ranged from their on-screen relationship and impending romance, to the reunion of the leads and the dark themes of the sequel. Highlights can be read below.

What can you tell us about Newt and Tina’s relationship in The Crimes of Grindelwald? Has it progressed or developed at all since the end of the first film?

Katherine Waterston:
Progressed? Regressed, maybe.
Eddie Redmayne: There was so much hope at the end of the last film, but there’s miscommunication.
Waterston: Yeah. It’s a long-distance relationship!
Redmayne: It’s desperate because they’re sort of pining for each other, but things have gone awry. Part of this film is about them re-finding each other.
Waterston: Yeah, but you know, there’s a lot going on, so it’s hard to just have a cup of tea and catch up and sort things out.
Redmayne: We were quite excited at the end of the last film. We thought, Oh my god, we’re going to get to have a lot of fun working together on this film! And then the script arrived and it became clear that it wasn’t going to be that easy. We’re going to have to work for this romance.
Waterston: But that’s fun. It’s fun to have it be complex and surprising and rich.
We know Newt prefers working with animals, but the trailer shows him working with Dumbledore. What motivates him to work with his former teacher?
A part of this story is about Newt’s call to action. One of the lovely things that I adore about Newt is that he’s just completely his own person – he doesn’t get pulled in to become a member of the tribe. People are always trying to recruit him, but he’s his own person. And yet, actually, the stakes get so high in this film that it’s really him questioning whether he can continue doing that or whether at some point you have to engage.

As for Dumbledore, he and Newt have always had this kind of wonderful master/apprentice quality and there’s kind of a joy between them. But Dumbledore’s sly. Dumbledore’s been recruiting Newt a little bit, and he certainly does in this film. I suppose the reason he’s pulled to engage is because the stakes are so high. That Grindelwald dude is causing havoc.

How did it feel to have the fantastic four reunited? Have their relationships changed since the end of the first film?
This is the kind of question that’s gonna get me in a lot of trouble.
Redmayne: Do it. Get in trouble.
Waterston: It was amazing to be reunited. We spent so much time together on the tour and working on the first film, and it’s always so exciting when everybody goes away and people’s kids get bigger and people fall in love, all sorts of things happen. It’s really wonderful to all reunite and get the gossip.
Redmayne: Those first early days when we come back to work, there’s no work happening. It’s just life catch-up and David Yates occasionally going, “OK, there’s work going on here, team. Enough with the banter.”
Waterston: As for this film… [thinks for a bit] Things have changed. With all the relationships in the group.
Redmayne: You said that really enigmatically, it was brilliant. The idea of the quartet... I think, momentarily, the band has been disbanded.
Waterston: But the concern and the bond and the intimacy is still there. These people are very important to one another.
The rest of the interview, with sprinklings of gifs from the video interview, can be read here.
Warner Bros. Pictures’ “Fantastic Beasts: The Crimes of Grindelwald” is the second of five all new adventures in J.K. Rowling’s Wizarding World™.

At the end of the first film, the powerful Dark wizard Gellert Grindelwald (Johnny Depp) was captured by MACUSA (Magical Congress of the United States of America), with the help of Newt Scamander (Eddie Redmayne). But, making good on his threat, Grindelwald escaped custody and has set about gathering followers, most unsuspecting of his true agenda: to raise pure-blood wizards up to rule over all non-magical beings.

In an effort to thwart Grindelwald’s plans, Albus Dumbledore (Jude Law) enlists his former student Newt Scamander, who agrees to help, unaware of the dangers that lie ahead. Lines are drawn as love and loyalty are tested, even among the truest friends and family, in an increasingly divided wizarding world.

The film features an ensemble cast led by Eddie Redmayne, Katherine Waterston, Dan Fogler, Alison Sudol, Ezra Miller, with Jude Law and Johnny Depp. The cast also includes, Zoë Kravitz, Callum Turner, Claudia Kim, William Nadylam, Kevin Guthrie, Carmen Ejogo, and Poppy Corby-Tuech.

“Fantastic Beasts: The Crimes of Grindelwald” 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.

Slated for release on November 16, 2018, the film will be distributed worldwide in 2D and 3D in select theatres and IMAX by Warner Bros. Pictures, a Warner Bros. Entertainment Company.
