Accio Excitement! 7 Things We Hope Will Be in the New Harry Potter Movie

If you are a fan of all things Hogwarts, then you’ve probably already started daydreaming about Fantastic Beasts And Where To Find ThemThe new Harry Potter movie, a prequel exploring the life of Newt Scamander seventy years before Harry’s existence, opens up so many possibilities. Will we find out more about Harry’s grandparents? Will we find out more about the genealogy of some of our favorite characters? Will 1920s outfits be featured? Of course, seeing as the movie is actually about him, Newt will also need to be featured — but I’m personally voting for him being featured alongside the Potters, Dumbledore, and Dobby.

Check out the seven things we’re hoping will be featured in the new Harry Potter movie!

  • Albus Dumbledore 1 of 7
    Dumbledore

    A young Dumbledore cameo? I think yes. It's highly plausible (in my mind, anyway) that he could take a wizarding holiday in New York.

  • 1920s Uniforms 2 of 7

    The Hogwarts uniforms have evolved over the years, and I'm desperate to see how they were in the 1920s! Flapper-style dresses for the girls? Straw hats and suspenders for the boys? And will these 1920s uniforms be sold at Harry Potter World? Because if so, I'm not ashamed to admit that I'd totally consider buying a set.

  • Harry’s Grandparents 3 of 7
    HP

    Either set of grandparents... I'm flexible. Maybe Newt could have tea with Mr. and Mrs. Potter as they celebrate their anniversary in New York? Perhaps we can get a glimpse into the Muggle world of New York City and overhear the brief conversation of Mr. and Mrs. Evans as they shop on Fifth Avenue?

  • The Wizarding World of New York City 4 of 7
    Diagon Alley 2

    Is there a Diagon Alley? Is the Ministry of Magic headquartered in the Empire State Building? Is Platform 9 and 3/4 (because naturally  there would be one there too, for the New York version of Hogwarts) located in Grand Central Station?

  • Hagrid’s Mother and Father 5 of 7
    Hagrid 2

    A romantic love story featuring Hagrid's mother and father? Yes, please. If not, maybe just Hagrid's father sitting at a pub, nursing a mug of ale, discussing his love of hippogriffs with Newt?

  • What Hogwarts was Like When Newt was There (Either as a Student or the Headmaster) 6 of 7

    Teachers? Common rooms? Mischief? Who was the grounds-keeper? Who made out with whom in the Gryffindor common room? Who met a three-headed dog and had to play a magical life-size game of chess (oh wait...)? What excitement was there when the students didn't need to worry about being killed all the time? I want to know it all!

  • Dobby 7 of 7
    Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows Part 1

    Newt spent two years in the Office for House Elf Restoration, so presumably he knew many house elves. We never find out the life span of house elves, nor how old Dobby was when he first met Harry, so I'm choosing to believe that Dobby was alive at the same time as Newt. I'm also choosing to hope that we re-meet Dobby —  even if it's just a cameo.
