Post Eddie Redmayne discusses 'Fantastic Beasts' 2 shocking finale, 4 more deleted scenes

Eddie Redmayne recently sat down and spoke about the shocking reveal in Fantastic Beasts: The Crimes of Grindelwald, as well as even more deleted scenes in the feature that did not make the cut (and were not mentioned in either of the deleted scenes posts here and here).

The interviewer noted that producer David Heyman confirmed that the final three movies will have the titles "Fantastic Beasts: ______" similar to Fantastic Beasts: The Crimes of Grindelwald. Redmayne admitted in a recent interview that both he and Jude Law (Albus Dumbledore) already know the name of the third installment, out in November 2020.

Do note that there are MAJOR SPOILERS below for Fantastic Beasts: The Crimes of Grindelwald, so do heed with caution if you have not seen the movie yet. Also note that this interview was conducted in early November, before the Paris world premiere (hence why Redmayne, as of this interview, had already seen the movie only once).

So jumping into spoilers, when did you find out that Dumbledore was going to get a brother?
Eddie Redmayne:
I mean, I found out when I read the script. I’ve been asked about this, but when I read it, it was genuinely jaw dropping for me. It was one of those scripts that you finished. You read in one, and then you started rereading all over again. The connections and the complexities, and just, it felt sort of, even more full each time you read it. I’m curious as to, I’ve only seen the film once, but I wonder how it plays when you see it again, and whether there are always new things that you can pull out from it.

The ending of this movie absolutely changes the Harry Potter universe. How do you think fans are going to react?
From the fans that I’ve met, also we went to the Wizarding World of Harry Potter at Universal Studios the other day, just after a load of fans had seen the film. The feeling seemed to be one of extraordinary excitement, because everyone has such faith in Jo to have the explanations. If that makes sense. And I suppose I put myself in that camp. From when I first met Jo, it became clear that you ask about any character at any point in their life, she can without even drawing breath, she will start telling you the intricacies and the details. So I feel like, obviously it’s her world, so she has a pretty thorough understanding.
On a couple of more deleted scenes Redmayne revealed and lamented the loss of.

Yeah, she is one of the rare people that I have implicit faith in to deliver the goods. David Heyman also told me that this film had a number of deleted scenes. I’m curious, which scenes were you sad to see go?
Which scene? There was quite a lovely scene in the pub between a wizarding pub, after that first scene where Newt refuses to be taken in by the ministry basically, and become an Auror. He kind of storms out, and originally there was a scene in which I was in a wizarding pub in London, and my brother came and we had a conversation there, and Pickett was busy getting drunk on my butter beer and stuff. That was quite a lovely scene, and I saw why it needed to go.

I think Zoe Kravitz is sensational in the film, but there was one particular extension of the scene you already saw when her history is revealed. And she did this sort of, quite dumbfounding break down, which was, everyone in the room felt-—I mean, I as Newt ran over to her to check if she was okay, and I think it may have ended up not working musically with the piece somehow, but it was an astonishing thing to witness. So I would have loved to have seen that.

I’m trying to think what else. There’s the little bit with the baby Nifflers, which was ever so slightly more extended, so I quite enjoyed that. There’s one more scene which was actually in the chase when Tina and Newt are in the records room, and then the thing spins around to reveal us to Leta, and we suddenly get chased by the Matagot’s, those black cats. Well there was quite a peaceful moment in which my case fell out of my hand and Tina let down to go and get it, and basically managed to get the whole thing, sending off all these cats.

Meanwhile, Leta is being trounced on by these cats, and absolutely gave them a sort of massive kicking to save Newt, and then Newt had the idea that they should get into the case. I saw a version in which that was in, and I actually quite think it was, again, a time thing. There’s so many intricate, delicate parts. I feel like David had his work cut out to sort of really define that story.

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, Zoë Kravitz, Callum Turner, Claudia Kim, William Nadylam, Kevin Guthrie, Carmen Ejogo, Poppy Corby-Tuech, with Jude Law and Johnny Depp.

“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. Tim Lewis, Neil Blair, Rick Senat and Danny Cohen serve as executive producers.

The film reunites the behind-the-scenes creative team from the first “Fantastic Beasts” film, including Oscar-winning director of photography Philippe Rousselot (“A River Runs Through It”), three-time Oscar-winning production designer Stuart Craig (“The English Patient,” “Dangerous Liaisons,” “Gandhi,” the “Harry Potter” films), four-time Oscar-winning costume designer Colleen Atwood (“Chicago,” “Memoirs of a Geisha,” “Alice in Wonderland,” “Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them”), and Yates’ longtime editor Mark Day (the last four “Harry Potter” films). The music is by eight-time Oscar nominee James Newton Howard (“Defiance,” “Michael Clayton,” “The Hunger Games” films).

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.

This film is rated PG-13 for some sequences of fantasy action.
