'Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them' Conjures New Character Details

Even after revelations about the American term for "Muggle" and the film's plot, Entertainment Weekly has still more secrets to divulge about "Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them" -- namely, details about the central characters.

We already know that Eddie Redmayne stars in J.K. Rowling's "Harry Potter" spinoff as eccentric magizoologist Newt Scamander, who pays a visit to 1926 New York City. But know we have an idea about some of the supporting cast:

Katherine Waterston as Porpentina "Tina" Goldstein: an ambitious worker at the Magical Congress of the United States of America (the U.S. counterpart to the Ministry of Magic), who's relegated to a menial position after she stood up to the wrong person.

Alison Sudol as Queenie Goldstein: Tina's free-spirited younger sister and roommate, who can read minds.

Dan Fogler as Jacob Kowalski: a non-magical ("No-Maj") factory worker who's exposed to the wizarding world when he meets Newt.

Colin Farrell as Graves: right-hand man to the president of America's wizarding world.

Samantha Morton as Mary Lou: leader of the Second Salemers, a fanatical group determined to expose and destroy wizard and witches

Ezra Miller as Credence: Mary Lou's troubled (and mysterious) adopted son

Directed by “Harry Potter” veteran David Yates from a script by Rowling, the film also stars Samantha Morton, Jon Voight, Gemma Chan, Carmen Ejogo and Ron Perlman.

The first film in a planned trilogy, “Fantastic Beasts” is set to open Nov. 18, 2016.
