‘Fantastic Beasts’ deleted scene reveals a shocking detail about the sequel
This puts a whole new spin on the rest of the franchise.
Fantastic Beasts only just came out, but we’re already hearing intriguing details about the sequel. According to producer David Heyman, the filmmakers originally planned a scene that puts a whole new spin on the ending—and the future of the franchise.
“We actually had a scene, which we cut, which was Credence going to a boat, to get on a boat somewhere else. But we cut that, because we didn’t want to have it be such an, ‘Ahhh, here we go.'”
So, while Credence’s death felt somewhat ambiguous in the movie, Heyman has already destroyed that sense of ambiguity. He also shared some unexpected hints about the future of the franchise, namely that Newt Scamander may not be the protagonist. He said that while Newt, Jacob, Tina and Queenie “will be part of the next one,” Credence may have a larger role as the series continues.
When Cinemablend asked about Dumbledore’s role, Heyman agreed that he was important character, adding, “And Credence and Grindelwald. I think they will be the main players.”
This definitely puts a new spin on things. Not least because if Dumbledore and Grindelwald take center stage, the Fantastic Beasts franchise may not involve many fantastic beasts after all.
