Eddie Redmayne definitely should be proud of the work he and his co-stars put in for the soon-to-be released Fantastic Beasts 2: The Crimes of Grindelwald.
But no matter how proud he may be of the second installment of Fantastic Beasts, he still believes there can be some additions in the next three movies that can improve the series.
Redmayne recently told CinemaBlend that the lovable Hagrid, a classic character in the Harry Potter series, would be his personal choice for a character to feature in the sequels. "I'm secretly hoping that at some wonderful point, maybe if I say it enough times to J.K. Rowling, like a little mini Hagrid might arrive," he said.
Redmayne is not the lone member of the Fantastic Beasts cast in favor of seeing "mini Hagrid" appear in the future. Katherine Waterston, who plays Tina Goldstein, is also supportive of the idea. "In the timeline, he could be a kid... I think it could work!" she said.
So I’m watching Fantastic Beasts again and I’m just wondering what Newt and Hagrid’s first meeting would have been like because I’m sorry but they’re best friends. #FantasticBeasts— em⚡️ (@iiBroadwayii) November 6, 2018
Based on the Fantastic Beasts timeline at the moment, it would be impossible to include Hagrid, as he was born later than where the films are currently at.
But, maybe JK Rowling can come up with a way to include Hagrid in the future. After all, Minerva McGonagall is reportedly in the new film, although she isn't technically supposed to be born yet. Fantastic Beasts: The Crimes of Grindelwald will hit theaters on Nov. 16.
