Harry Potter fans around the world are bursting with excitement about the new movie Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them, which sees British actor Eddie Redmayne starring in the lead role of Newt Scamander. Eddie has been talking about shooting the movie and, while he seems to have loved every minute of it, he has revealed that he and some of the other stars suffered from some wizarding injuries.
Redmayne told Time Out magazine, "The wand thing is hilarious. There is a part of you that's seven years old again when the director says 'Choose your wand.' Then you feel like a fool, standing there with a stick in your hand. And there were injuries - wand wrist, wizard elbow. 'That was genuinely a thing! We were doing these huge wizard duels, throwing your arm around left, right and centre."
He added, "Colin [Farrell] and I came in one day, and we said to each other: 'Mate, is your arm a bit sore?' It's a hazard. By the end of 'Fantastic Beasts' I was zonked. And Hannah was pregnant. So I've taken time off. Iris arrived and it's been so lovely. It's the first time I've taken time off properly."
Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them has been directed by David Yates and is set to hit the big screen on November 18 in both the US and the UK. For now though, check out one of the Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them trailers, below.
