Do You Agree With The Cast Of "Fantastic Beasts" In This Game Of Wizarding "Would You Rather"?

Do You Agree With The Cast Of "Fantastic Beasts" In This Game Of Wizarding "Would You Rather"?

Ever since Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them came out in 2016, we’ve been eagerly awaiting the second instalment of the franchise. Now, two years later, Fantastic Beasts: The Crimes of Grindelwald is almost here, and we’re finally being blessed with even more information about J.K. Rowling’s wizarding world.

When BuzzFeed UK met with some of the cast of the series — Ezra Miller (Credence), Dan Fogler (Jacob), Claudia Kim (Nagini), Zoë Kravitz (Leta Lestrange), and Callum Turner (Theseus Scamander) — in London recently, the second film was still completely shrouded in secrecy. So we decided to challenge the stars to a little game of Would You Rather: Wizarding Edition. And now you can play along with them...

1. Would you rather have to wear a super-tall wizard’s hat every day for the rest of your life, or wear a wizard’s cloak with every outfit?

Dan Fogler: [to Ezra] I know your answer.

Ezra Miller: Both! I mean, if I was “required”, it would give me an excuse. That would be useful for me performing neurotypical behaviours.

Callum Turner: Some people actually do wear a wizard’s hat every day. Brooklyn, Shoreditch. That stuff happens.

Zoë Kravitz: I feel like I can wear different kinds of cloaks. I’d rock a cloak in a second.

  1. What about you? Are you a hat person, or all about that cloak?

    I'd definitely go with the hat.

    I'm with the cast — I could rock a cloak.

2. Would you rather go to Hogwarts or Ilvermorny?

Claudia Kim: Oooh, Hogwarts!

CT: Surely Hogwarts.

ZK: Yeah, Hogwarts for sure.

EM: We just know more about Hogwarts. It’s almost an unfair question to Ilvermorny.

CK: But Voldemort… Voldemort and Dumbledore were both at the same one, right?

EM: Hogwarts. But Grindelwald is from… [waits for Claudia to answer, then sings] Durmstrang! He went to Durmstrang!

  1. Are you filled with Hogwarts pride, or would you choose to explore Ilvermorny?

    I'm a Hogwartian through and through.

    I'd love to learn more about Ilvermorny!

3. Would you rather be an Auror like Theseus, or a magizoologist like Newt?

CT: An Auror, obviously.

ZK: Oh, no, I would definitely be a zoologist. [laughs] We love each other.

  1. How about you — what would your wizarding occupation be?

    I'm going with Newt — magizoologist all the way.

    I want to be an Auror like Theseus.

4. Would you rather get to explore Newt’s case or Dumbledore’s office?

EM: Dumbledore’s office.

DF: Yeah. I’ve been in Newt’s case, and that case is kind of stinky. There’s a lot of animals in there.

CK: Is it? I’d like to be in that case. I haven’t been there yet.

EM: Yeah, there’s cute creatures, but they’re also sooo dangerous. If you’re not Newt, I mean… Poor Jacob is a sitting duck.

ZK: Newt’s case. For sure.

CT: Yeah, 100%.

  1. Where would you prefer to explore?

    I'd want free rein in Newt's magical case.

    I want to explore every corner of Dumbledore's office.

5. In a duel, would you rather stun or disarm an opponent?

ZK: Stun.

CT: You like the stun, don’t you?

ZK: I like the stun. Stupefy!

  1. What would be your go-to move in a duel?

    I'd stun my opponent.

    I'd disarm my opponent.

6. Would you rather face a Boggart without magic, or face a Dementor without magic?

EM: A Boggart. But it is a deep question, and it plays a lot into what your sense of fear is. I’d rather just be like, “You’re right! There is nothing to fear but fear itself!” Rather than be like, there’s a thing and it’s going to suck my soul out of my body. And I don’t have any Patronus juice? No. No. NO.

ZK: This is just shitty. This is just a shitty situation.

  1. What's your take on this question? Are you facing a Boggart or a Dementor?

    A Boggart — I can handle seeing my biggest fear IRL.

    A Dementor — my biggest fear is even bigger than a Dementor.

7. Would you rather live your life in the wizarding world but never be able to do magic, or just never know magic existed?

EM: So it’s would you rather be a Squib, or a Muggle who never figures it out. I’d rather be a Muggle who never figures it out.

CK: A Muggle, yeah.

DF: That’s like not knowing love, man. That’s like not knowing a cool summer wind.

ZK: I think I’d rather live in the wizarding world and not be able to do magic. It’d be shitty, but at least I’d be able to witness magical things.

CT: I believe in magic anyway, so…

ZK: But you wouldn’t know it existed.

CT: But I do know it exists.

  1. This one's tough — but what would you rather?

    I'd rather be a Muggle who knew magic existed.

    I'd rather just never know magic existed at all.

8. Would you rather be the true master of the Elder Wand, or be the owner of the Invisibility Cloak?

EM: Elder Wand.

DF: Elder Wand.

CK: Cloak.

EM: I mean, yours is the non-amateur answer, because you know, in the original mythology, if you use the Elder Wand, then everyone’s after you and they want to fight you because you have the Elder Wand. We are the three brothers right now, and Claudia survived.

ZK: An Invisibility Cloak is a pretty dope thing to have. I could get onto planes people don’t know I’m on. I could go see movies for free. I could steal pizza out of pizza places.

CT: You could do better things with an Invisibility Cloak, that’s all I’m saying.

ZK: Like what? What would you do?

CT: Like, go round people’s houses, get gossip. Actually put it to good use.

ZK: Actually, that’s probably what I would do as well. [laughs]

  1. It's time to put yourself into the shoes of the Three Brothers — would you choose the Elder Wand or the Invisibility Cloak?

    The Elder Wand — I'm all about that power.

    The Invisibility Cloak is obviously the right choice.

9. Would you rather have Queenie’s mind-reading power, or be able to turn invisible like a Demiguise?

EM: I’ll go for the invisibility this time. The whole constant mind-reading thing is obviously a cursey, cursey gift.

ZK: I mean, I think reading people’s minds seems exhausting. It feels like you live in Twitter. Like, I don’t want to be there. I don’t even want to be in my own head half the time. So I guess Demiguise.

  1. Which power would you choose? Mind reading or invisibility?

    I'd definitely want to read people's minds.

    Reading minds is a curse — I'm going with invisibility.

10. Would you rather be a performer at the Circus Arcanus, or be one of Grindelwald’s followers?

CK: [to Ezra and Dan] I mean, this one is for you guys. I’m already a performer at the Circus Arcanus.

EM: I think you’re more thoroughly entrapped as one of Grindelwald’s followers, because you’re in the clutch of his silver tongue.

  1. It's basically a lose-lose situation, but would you rather be trapped by Grindelwald or the Circus Arcanus?

    I'm staying away from Grindelwald — it'd be the circus for me.

    I'd rather be one of Grindelwald's followers than perform in that circus.

11. Would you rather fight one Erumpent-sized Niffler, or 100 Niffler-sized Erumpents?

ZK: Probably one. You could focus on one thing. A hundred is a lot to focus on.

CT: Nifflers are quite big as well, so if there’s 100 of them…

ZK: It’s a lot. And where do you look?

CT: It depends what sort of fight as well. Is it a pillow fight?

ZK: Or a street fight?

  1. It's the classic Would You Rather: 100 Niffler-sized Erumpents, or one Erumpent-sized Niffler?

    I could definitely take on 100 Niffler-sized Erumpents.

    An Erumpent-sized Niffler would be adorable, I'm going with that!

12. Would you rather be sorted into Gryffindor, Hufflepuff, Ravenclaw, or Slytherin?

EM: Gryffindor.

CK: Gryffindor.

DF: Hufflepuff.

CT: Well, now that I’m a Hufflepuff, I have to stick to Hufflepuff.

ZK: I haven’t done the test yet, but I feel pretty Ravenclaw.

CT: But you’re a Slytherin, though.

ZK: Well, my character is, but are we talking about our characters, or us as people? You think I’m a Slytherin, me, Zoë? Leta’s Slytherin. But I, Zoë, am Slytherin?

CT: It’s not a bad thing!

  1. So...where do your loyalties lie?
