Slug Club member James joins the show as we discuss some of the best special features on the Fantastic Beasts DVD / Blu-ray (and Digital)!

  • We have very, very few MuggleCast t-shirts still available!
  • The Wizarding World theme park is getting decked out for Christmas!
  • What other holidays/celebrations would listeners like to see?
  • Our main discussion: The Fantastic Beast Creature & Design Features
  • It’s not all green screens and CGI
  • “Honey, what did you do today?” “Oh I dressed up as an erumpant and traded mating calls with Eddie Redmayne!”
  • Dougal the Demiguise is JKR’s favorite
  • “If you don’t like the Niffler, there is something wrong with you!”
  • JKR wanted to have one thing that was “quintessentially” American – Frank the Thunderbird
  • Which begs the question – where were the other American beasts?
  • Shaping The World of Fantastic Beasts
  • Rebuilding New York City, inside MACUSA, The Newtcase, The Blind Pig & more
  • What special features were missing that we would have liked to see?
