We're heading back to the wizarding world in "Fantastic Beasts: The Crimes of Grindelwald," and it sounds like there will be a lot more than just magical creatures and a battle between good and evil.
Eddie Redmayne recently opened up to EW about the upcoming sequel, and he had some gems to share. In fact, he alluded to a possible love triangle involving his character, Newt Scamander. We got a glimpse into the wizard's romantic past in "Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them" when Newt talked to Queenie Goldstein (Alison Sudol) about a photo he carried in his suitcase of Leta Lestrange (Zoe Kravitz), but it sounds like we'll soon learn a lot more.
Redmayne explained to EW that there was "definitely great love" in the relationship and that Leta "touched [Newt] hugely." However, he shared he doesn't know whether or not it was ever "a full-blown relationship." Whatever it was, though, it's going to get interesting.
"At the beginning of this film you realize she's now in a relationship with Newt's brother so, of course, that comes with great complications," Redmayne said of "The Crimes of Grindelwald."
Leta is more than just the girlfriend of Theseus Scamander (Callum Turner); the two are engaged, according to Pottermore. That could certainly make things interesting. Although Redmaye didn't explicitly state that there would be a love triangle, it definitely sounds like all the ingredients are potentially there.
We'll find out before 2018 is over. "Fantastic Beasts: The Crimes of Gindelwald" is due out Nov. 16.
In an effort to thwart Grindelwald's plans of raising pure-blood wizards to rule over all non-magical beings, Albus Dumbledore 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. Read More
