'Fantastic Beasts' Actress Claudia Kim Confirms Role As Nagini

‘Fantastic Beasts: The Crimes Of Grindelwald’: Trailer Reveals Sibling Mystery

In The Crimes of Grindelwald, Nagini is still able to change from human to snake and back at will, although she knows that eventually the transformation will be irreversible.

Warning: There are spoilers ahead for Fantastic Beasts: Crimes of Grindelwald in this article. Up until now, there'd been speculation as to who Claudia would be playing in the Fantastic Beasts sequel, but now there's concrete confirmation that she will be making her grand debut as Nagini in the Harry Potter world with the new Fantastic Beasts sequel. LGBTQ fans have also expressed their frustration with a perceived refusal to put an overtly gay version of Dumbledore on screen after Rowling said she "thought of Dumbledore as gay" after the final book's release.

The screenplay of Fantastic Beasts: Crimes of Grindelwald was written by Rowling, who is also a producer on the film.

Previous trailers dropped hints that a Maledictus was part of a magical travelling wizard circus, called The Circus Arcanus, and in the latest clip, Claudia's character can be seen transforming herself into a snake inside a cage. "Don't we want people to do better?" said another tweeter, Simen Sund, whilst Harun Wijanarko defended the author's autonomy over her own universe.

According to Kim, Nagini still has the ability to change at will during Fantastic Beasts 2, but by the time we meet her in the Potterverse, she's become a snake permanently. I'll be the first to say that the Harry Potter series made me want to write children's books.




Rowling replied, "The Naga are snake-like mythical creatures of Indonesian mythology, hence the name 'Nagini.' They are sometimes depicted as winged, sometimes as half-human, half-snake".

The upcoming film sees Eddie Redmayne return to his starring role as "magizoologist" Newt Scamander and Jude Law as a young Dumbledore, the headmaster of the Hogwarts boarding school, where Harry Potter and his friends learned to be wizards.

The nearly two and a half minute trailer promises action, surprises, wondrous visual effects, a strong Dumbledore/Newt bond, and a terrifyingly motivated villain in Johnny Depp's Grindelwald. You've only seen her as a Horcrux.

Fantastic Beasts: Crimes of Grindelwald is in theatres November 16.
