As Cosmopolitan reports, Maledictus (played by Claudia Kim) is a new character that could be the human form of Nagini.
Ya know, Voldemort’s big snake. Eyyy!
In shocking news that it’s not Taylor Swift, Pottermore describes Maledictus as “a mysterious woman with no name” and “the carrier of a blood curse that destines her to ultimately transform into a beast.”
Are you picking up what we are putting down here?
Maledictus’ fate could be that she turns into Voldemort’s most loyal follower/trusty horcrux.
Here’s what clues are in the trailer:
In the scene at the Circus Arcanus, a poster ft. a snake/human image with Claudia's likeness reads "Maledictus," which could imply that her "beast" form is a reptile. Maledictus is also the only character that doesn’t have a backstory yet, and fans are now thinking this means she's Nagini.
Even the timeline adds up… Fantastic Beasts 2 is set in 1926, the year Voldemort was born!!!
Pity her *spoiler alert* head gets chopped off by Neville Longbottom a few years down the road…
Fantastic Beasts: The Crimes of Grindelwald comes to cinemas November 16.
