  • Colin Farrell was chock-full of dire voiceover warnings. His character, Percival Graves, warned us that Newt’s a loose cannon with magical creatures no man can control.
  • We got a Dumbledore name drop! Albus argued against Newt’s expulsion, presumably because of Newt’s blindingly beautiful hair and how it’s the apex of all human achievement.
