Let The Magic Begin! 'Fantastic Beasts 2' Hits Aussie Cinemas

Maude Garrett had a chat to the stars of 'Fantastic Beasts: The Crimes of Grindelwald' on 'The Project' ahead its Australian release.

Fantastic Beasts: The Crimes Of Grindelwald, we pick up where we left off from the 2016 film -- following on from when the dark wizard Gellert Grindelwald (played by Johnny Depp) was captured by MACUSA (Magical Congress of the United States of America), thanks to Newt Scamander (Eddie Redmayne).

However, Grindelwald manages to escape and begins to band together followers in order to raise pure-blood wizards and witches up to rule over all non-magical beings.

Speaking to several stars of the of film -- including Eddie Redmayne, Jude Law and Ezra Miller -- Maude Garrett got all the juicy goss but first -- the most important question...

"What are the fantastic beasts and where do we find them?" she asked.

"Well, Niffler has had babies and they are tiny, and sweet, and cause trouble and I adore them!!"  Eddie Redmayne gushed.

According to Eddie, these impossibly cute creatures are set to wreak havoc on young Newt Scamander's life.

As for the often-debated pronunciation of 'Grindelwald'?

"Is it Grin-del-wald or Grin-del-Vald?" she asked, to which Ezra emphatically declared, "It's of course Grindel-VALD! But people are ignorant Anglo people and they cannot pronounce the Germanic GRINDELVALD!"

Redmayne added: "I went through the whole first film calling it 'Grindel-WALD' and then I saw this film and everyone was calling him 'Grindel-VALD' and I was like 'Wait, I didn't get the memo'".

Well, that settles that!
