Newt’s ‘War Hero’ Brother will Apparate in the ‘Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them’ Sequel

British actor Callum Turner (Green Room, Victor Frankenstein) is in talks to join the wizarding world as Newt Scamander’s (Eddie Redmayne) brother for the Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them sequel.

Theseus Scamander is mentioned in passing in the Fantastic Beasts film. He is Newt’s older brother, and was a hero during World War I. After the war, he became an auror, tasked with tracking down Grindelwald (Johnny Depp).

Not much else is known about the Fantastic Beasts four sequels. Jude Law has recently been cast as a young Albus Dumbledore, who is set to take on Depp’s Grindelwald. The two had an epic duel in 1945, which was mentioned in the Harry Potter series. The Fantastic Beasts series will inevitably lead up to that battle.

David Yates, who directed the final four Harry Potter movies and returned for Fantastic Beasts, is set to return for the next movie.

Eddie Redmayne, who will remain as the prime protagonist throughout the series, recently said that the sequels will keep the “Fantastic Beasts and” portion of the title, with the second part changed for the sequels.

The sequel is already scheduled to hit theaters in November 2018, with the third film planned for November 2020. This probably means we’ll see the fourth Fantastic Beasts in 2022 and the fifth and final movie in 2024.

Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them is an extension of the wizarding world created by J.K. Rowling, set decades before Harry Potter and his adventures in Hogwarts.

Since first learning to hold a pen, he has done little but read, watch, and write about characters and worlds of fantasy. It would be very difficult to find him without a pen in hand and an idea in mind, which is problematic for anyone wanting to have a conversation with him.

After said schooling, he joined an elite force of Rowan grads who also had the notion of becoming filmmakers. This group, known as Justice Productions, call on him every so often to write short films. And, until this whole writing thing pays off, Michael currently does development & marketing communication (writing, graphic & publication design, social media and website upkeep, etc.) for a web development company in Central New Jersey, where he currently resides.
