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

Look for baby Nifflers and these other magical creatures when “Fantastic Beasts: The Crimes of Grindelwald” arrives in theaters on November 16.
