New Fantastic Beasts 2 Image Hints At Famous Harry Potter Death-Eater Connection
We already know that Fantastic Beasts: The Crimes of Grindelwald will feature the human version of Voldemort's snake Nagini in the form of Claudia Kim. However, this might not be the only connection to the Dark Lord we will see this November.
Entertainment Weekly has released awesome new photos from Fantastic Beasts 2, most of which are of the characters we've already seen. Interestingly, the new images also feature a mysterious new character named Vinda Rosier, who is played by Poppy Corby-Tuech. She is described as "an ally of Grindelwald’s from a prestigious wizarding family."
Harry Potter fanatics will immediately notice the surname, which was mentioned in Harry Potter and the Goblet of Fire. In the trial of Igor Karkaroff, the future Durmstrang Headmaster mentioned "Evan Rosier" but Bartemius Crouch Senior dismissed him, stating that Rosier is dead.
Rosier actually had connections with Severus Snape considering they were both Slytherins who became Death-Eaters in support of Lord Voldemort. Rosier's death was an interesting one as he reportedly fought Alastor Moody while resisting capture and injured the Auror's nose. Nevertheless, Moody prevailed and killed him during the fight.
It has not yet been confirmed if Vinda is related to Evan but considering her closeness to Gellert Grindelwald, we wouldn't be surprised if she is one of his ancestors. Author J.K Rowling has always managed to weave together interesting backstories for all the characters she introduced so we are certainly looking forward to what Vinda will do in the sequel.
Although Voldemort might not show up in Fantastic Beasts 2, Johnny Depp has confirmed that Grindelwald will play a major role up until the third film. The Pirates of the Caribbean star has admitted he will begin work on Fantastic Beasts 3 in mid-2019.
Fantastic Beasts: The Crimes of Grindelwald will premiere on November 18.
