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.
