A letter from Theseus Scamander

Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them is one of the most successful movies of 2016, a film under less than a month in theaters that has collected more than 612 million dollars and has brought back the magical world of J.K. Rowling into our lives. In this film we discover the character of Newt Scamander, a magician who travels to New York with a suitcase full of magical creatures and a clear objective.

In this film it was revealed that the protagonist has an older brother, Theseus, a man who fought in World War I and is considered a hero by many magicians around the world – this is revealed during the MACUSA scene at the International Confederation of Wizards. Now, thanks to Snitch Seeker, we can get to know the hero brother better, and during the visit to the Warner Bros. tour of the Harry Potter series they could photograph a letter that Theseus had sent to Newt.

Well, little brother,

I do not know how much you’ve heard wherever you are about what’s happening in ancient Europe but Grindelwald’s been making a lot of noise since you left.

A charismatic type, but the Ministry does not like the International Confederation.

It has angered some of the great and has been hidden. I have chosen to walk away and find him. ___ with the probability of being hunted, it is more, due to the great ___ I want to be in this case and it has taken me some___ hard work to get this status.

___ I wish you the best-wherever you are. ___ in any mission on beasts in which you are immersed.

My best wishes,

This letter has been designed by MinaLima – the graphic designers in charge of newspapers and letters – with information that they have only been able to receive from J.K. Rowling and the script she wrote herself. The question is whether we will see Theseus Scamander in action in the following films, specifically in the search for Grindelwald, will Newt join this fight? If the news are confirmed, the actor for this role must be chosen soon and must be older than Eddie Redmayne (34 years). Do you have someone in mind for playing mighty war hero Theseus.
