It's been five years since the last Harry Potter movie was released, but fans are still picking up on clever details that were weaved throughout the series. In a new revelation, it seems that Newt Scamander—the lead character in Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them—also appeared in Harry Potter and the Prisoner of Azkaban.
If you're a Harry Potter fan, you'll already know that the character of Newt has been around since 2001 when the Hogwarts textbook, Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them, was released. The book is meant to be authored by the fictional Magizoologist, but he had another small presence in the third movie. Just take a look at this:
In the scene where Fred and George teach Harry how to use the Marauder's Map, it shows that Newt Scamander was walking around the castle at that time. Some theorize that news of Buckbeak's execution may have reached him, and he went to Hogwarts in an attempt to save the hippogriff.
Others wonder if Newt were visiting Dumbledore, as the headmaster is fond of him and his work, and tried to prevent his expulsion. Whatever the case, we're hoping this link is explored in the Fantastic Beasts series.
Now—be honest—did you ever notice Newt's presence in Prisoner of Azkaban?
