AceShowbiz - Potterheads gathered at King's Cross railway station in London to celebrate "Back to Hogwarts" day on Saturday, September 1. One thing that they didn't know during the event was the fact that Eddie Redmayne joined them along with his co-star in "Fantastic Beasts: The Crimes of Grindelwald", Jude Law.
Fans were beaming with excitement when the two actors arrived in the promotional video which was posted on "Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them" official Instagram account. A girl even tried to hold back happy tears as she posed with Redmayne and Law.
Redmayne, who plays Newt Scamander in the movie, opted for a casual look for the annual event. He rocked a white T-shirt underneath a red flannel shirt, a brown velvet jacket, jeans and a pair of white sneakers.
Law, meanwhile, wore a gray T-shirt and a navy jumper, which were paired with matching trousers and brown shoes. Together, they posed in front of platform 9 3/4, pushing a cart full of luggage. The platform is known as a magic portal in "Harry Potter" movies that takes young witches and wizards to the magical world.
The two actors were also seen happily posing with two little potterheads who wore Hogwarts uniforms. The annual event was held to commemorate the departure of young witches and wizards to the fictional school via Hogwarts Express.
In addition to their surprise appearance, Redmayne and Law recently have been promoting the sequel of "Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them". While Redmayne reprises his role as magizoologist Newt, Law plays younger version of Professor Albus Dumbledore.
The upcoming sequel is set decades before Dumbledore becomes a headmaster at Hogwarts. The story follows young Dumbledore and Newt who try to stop Johnny Depp's Gellert Grindelwald who plans to rule over all non-magical beings.
Law previously discussed the story at the 2018 San Diego Comic-Con. "There's an awful lot at stake, it's very much about whose side you are on in the story," the 45-year-old actor said. "The muggle world [and] the wizarding world [are] somewhat pitted against each other but also the wizards within the wizarding world are suddenly asked what side are they on, what side of the line they choose to join."
Directed by David Yates, "Fantastic Beast: The Crimes of Grindelwald" is set to be released in U.S. theaters on November 16.
