Anyone hoping that the next Fantastic Beasts film will shy away from beasts need not worry.
Despite the ever-expanding plot concerning wizards, we recently learned of a few beasts that are making their debut in the film. But they aren’t the only ones!
Hypable is pleased to exclusively unveil the Chupacabra, a blood-sucking Fantastic Beast that is expected to make its debut in this November’s The Crimes of Grindelwald. The Wizarding World’s Chupacabra has six legs, spines (plural!), and a “vicious-looking set of teeth.”
The beast is part of a new wave of Crimes of Grindelwald Funko Pop! Vinyls that’ll be released September 16th. Take a look at the lil guy below:
Funnily enough, Fantastic Beasts co-star Johnny Depp, who plays Grindelwald, is no stranger to the chupacabra. This creature actually exists within mythical lore beyond the Wizarding World, and in 2015, Depp told media that he was unable to attend a media event the previous day because he was attacked by a “very rarely seen” animal called the chupacabra.
“I fought with it for hours,” he told Japanese media in January of that year. “They’re very persistent, very mean. And I’m pretty sure it came into my suitcase. I threw him off the 23rd floor. So we’ll never see him again. Thank you for understanding.”
Whether or not Rowling added the chupacabra to the movie as a reference to Depp’s past relationship with it is, at this point, anyone’s guess.
The forthcoming Crimes of Grindelwald Funko Pop! Vinyls are part of the ever expanding line up of Wizarding World merchandise. In recent years, Warner Brothers Consumer Products has teamed up with new and old partners to appeal to fans of all ages. I’ve personally been loving the collections of new Potter merchandise at places like Target (Does your store have that new Trending area too?) and Box Lunch.
