Reactions to Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them felt a little muted a year ago, but that didn't stop the first Harry Potter spin-off from making $814 million worldwide.

The latest casting news in the Potterverse has been announced with Green Room star Callum Turner being in negotiations to play the brother of Newt Scamander in the forthcoming sequel to Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them.

Besides the fact that Callum Turner is playing Newt Scamander's brother, there isn't much more information about his character at this time, including his actual name. The ambitious plans to make four sequels and further bridge the gap between the first movie the rest of the Potter series has continued apace, with J.K. Rowling penning the sequel for returning director David Yates, who has already cast Jude Law as a young Albus Dumbledore in the sequel.
