Sept. 2 (UPI) — Two of the stars of Fantastic Beasts: The Crimes of Grindelwald made a surprise appearance this weekend at the King’s Cross train station in London.
“Eddie Redmayne and Jude Law visited platform 9 ¾ just in time to go #BackToHogwarts!” the Fantastic Beasts Twitter feed said Saturday. The post includes a brief video of the actors greeting their ecstatic fans.
TheWrap said Wizarding World of Harry Potter enthusiasts have gathered at the station on Sept. 1 for years, observing it as “Back to Hogwarts” day in honor of when student wizards travel to their fictional boarding school for their new terms in the franchise’s books and movies.
Co-starring Johnny Depp, Ezra Miller, Alison Sudol, Callum Turner, Katherine Waterston and Dan Fogler, the Harry Potter prequel Fantastic Beasts: The Crimes of Grindelwald is slated for theatrical release on Nov. 16.
