Producer David Heyman Discusses Importance of Tolerance at Fantastic Beasts Premiere

J.K. Rowling, Eddie Redmayne, and Ezra Miller joined director David Yates, and the rest of the Fantastic Beasts cast on the red carpet Tuesday night for the movie’s European Premiere. Producer David Heyman took the opportunity to discuss the movie’s timely message of tolerance.

Ezra Miller’s character suffers as a result of intolerance.

“She writes about our world, about outsiders, it’s about tolerance and intolerance. These are our issues. This is our world. These characters are us. I think that’s why it resonates in the way it does.”

Indeed, Fantastic Beasts explores intolerance in regard to the beasts, which the witches are largely prone to kill, and between humans and witches. Significantly, the effects of intolerance resonate most emotionally in the story of Credence (Ezra Miller). Rowling’s story and Miller’s performance combine to deliver some of Fantastic Beasts’ most poignant moments. The budding, yet forbidden, relationship between Queenie (Alison Sudol) and Jacob (Dan Fogler) explores tolerance in a touching, more positive, light.

From Variety:

‘Fantastic Beasts’ Producer Spells Out J.K. Rowling Story at U.K. Premiere: ‘It’s About Tolerance and Intolerance’

Magical chaos hit the blue carpet on Tuesday night at the European premiere of “Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them.”

Ripped from the pages of J.K. Rowling’s script, a sudden and saturating downpour fell upon a glut of unsuspecting muggles – better known in the U.S. as no-majs.

Rowling’s on-carpet incantations proved rusty. Her best spell to stop the rain failed when it was needed most, forcing the masses to resort to a roof of roaming umbrellas around the Leicester Square carpet.

Fresh from his 1926 expedition to a spellbound New York City, lead beast-loving naturalist Eddie Redmayne was enjoying himself, divulging his fanboy love of the wizarding world. “I used to go and watch the [Harry] Potter films for a J.K. Rowling hug every few years,” he said.

Joining the worldly wizard on the carpet came a new generation magical cast including Alison SudolKatherine WaterstonCarmen EjogoEzra Miller, and Dan Fogler. “Potter” alumni were still aptly represented however – faced by director David Yates, producer David Heyman and Warner Bros. U.K. head Josh Berger.

Heyman gave his insight into Rowling’s fantastically timely relevance when he stated, “She writes about our world, about outsiders, it’s about tolerance and intolerance. These are our issues. This is our world. These characters are us. I think that’s why it resonates in the way it does.”

Following the big screen wrap, guests headed eastbound to the Grand Connaught Rooms. Celebrating the resurgence of Rowling’s fantastical world, partying in a vast magical illusion set in 1920s Manhattan. One area of the party was themed after New York City Hall and subway, where some of the film is set.

Tonight’s advance screening of Fantastic Beasts benefited Rowling’s Lumos charity

We just caught an early screening of Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them with JK Rowling and the cast, benefiting her Lumos charity. Eddie Redmayne lead the Q&A, during which Rowling explained the developmental harm being done to children in even the best of orphanages. Lumos works to provide family and community-based care for children in place of institutional care.

The movie itself is a wild ride. There’s so much layering of plot and subplot, that not only do the beasts themselves sometimes seem like a distraction, but it’s easy to see why the Fantastic Beasts series will stretch out over five movies. However, a couple of the beasts do provide some comedy relief, as many of the scenes can be on the darker side. American witches, it turns out, have a taste for death. The theme of abuse and the suppression of potential, also provide with film with darker tones.

The cast is great. Newt Scamander (Eddie Redmayne) semi-consistently comes across as awkward and obsessed with his work. But when the situation calls for it, he’s in action adventure mode. Ezra Miller gives one of our favorite performances as Credence, but I won’t give away any spoilers. His relationship with Percival Graves (Colin Farrell) is peculiar at first, and quickly escalates.

Before the start of the movie, Rowling told of her love for these characters. I feel we’ve only gotten a glimpse of them, but so far they are likable enough. Queenie, played by Alison Loren Sudol, is probably most likable after Newt.

After the movie, JK Rowling joined members of her Lumos team on stage, to a standing ovation. She thanked the audience for helping to raise money for the charity. Then she asked, “So, did you enjoy the movie? So it was worth it.”
