Nifflers, the magical Wizarding World creatures attracted to all things shiny, were memorably featured in “Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them.” In the upcoming sequel, we’ll be introduced to adorable baby Nifflers.
Notably, the baby doesn’t have jet-black fur like Newt Scamander’s Niffler in the first film, pictured below in the midst of a jewelry store robbery.
In the upcoming sequel, Newt (Eddie Redmayne) has to deal with a litter of mischievous baby Nifflers who are wreaking havoc around him.
The film also includes a few other new beasts, including the following species:
- Kelpie, an underwater creature native to Scotland that can be mounted and ridden
- Leucrotta, a moose-like creature with an extremely large mouth
- Augurey, an owl-like creature familiar to fans of “Harry Potter and the Cursed Child” whose cry foretells death
