Here’s everything we know so far about the Leta Lestrange and Newt web in Fantastic Beasts 2

And where on earth does Belltrix fit in?

The Lestranges are obviously one of the most interesting Wizarding families. They’re purebloods, unfailingly loyal to Voldemort both times around and purveyors of extremely dark magic. Plus, Bellatrix married into the family. That alone carries some serious weight!

Bellatrix had already come from a complicated family – the Most Noble and Ancient Family of Black.

When the name Leta Lestrange was dropped into conversation in ‘Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them’ Potterheads everywhere gasped. Probably. We can’t tell obvs, we totally did.

In an interview with Collider, Zoe Kravitz who will be playing Leta in the upcoming movies gave a few hints about Leta’s relationship with Newt.

The relationship between Leta and Newt Scamander is a complex relationship

But everything is still completely hush hush – apparently even Eddie Redmayne doesn’t yet know what trouble Newt will be getting into next.

And we still don’t know Leta’s connection to Bellatrix. It’s a long and complicated family history between the Blacks and the Lestranges, well, between all pureblood families tbh. Who knows!

Tell us your theories for what’s going to happen in ‘Fantastic Beasts 2’ – we want to know!
