WATCH | "Harry Potter" fans have celebrated J.K. Rowling's universe of fascinating and unique characters, but while discussing the movie prequel "Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them," Rowling herself revealed there's a common thread all of the heroes she creates.
"My heroes are always people who feel... set apart, stigmatized or othered," she said.
WATCH | Academy Award winner Eddie Redmayne plays Newt Scamander, a self-described "magizoologist" who Redmayne said "feels more at home with creatures then he does with human beings." When Newt ventures into 1920s New York City, "Newt walks into a society he doesn't really understand."
"We don't really know who's good and who's bad until [the end]," co-star Ezra Miller added.
Rowling announced on Oct. 13 that there would be five "Fantastic Beasts" movies.
The prequel stories were "always where I was interested in going," Rowling said.
