There will be new creatures that will be introduced in “Fantastic Beasts: The Crimes of Grindelwald.” One of these new creatures will be a baby Niffler. The adult creature was first introduced in the 2016 film.

Niffler is a magical creature that loves to steal gold, jewellery, and anything shiny. They are ideally suited to locate hidden treasures.

A new picture posted on EntertainmentWeekly shows a baby Niffler. The picture shows Newt Scamander (Eddie Redmayne) with the creature busy stealing something. The report notes that although the 2016 film showed the creature to have black fur, there are different colour variations. The fans can expect to see baby Nifflers in white, orange, and black fur.

“They’re wreaking havoc,” Redmayne said about the litter of newborn Nifflers that his character encounters in the film. Newt will find that the baby Nifflers are just as mischievous as their parents.

There will be other new creatures that will be introduced in the film. Some of the new beasts that the fans will get to see in the upcoming film are a kelpie, a leucrotta, and an augurey.

A kelpie is a Scottish underwater creature that people can mount and ride. A leucrotta is a large mouse-like creature that has an “impossible huge mouth.” An augurey is an owl-like creature, whose speciality is that its cry is believed to foreshadow a death.

The description of these three creatures suggests that there will adventure and tragedy in the next film. While Newt may get to ride a kelpie, it will be interesting to see whose death the augurey will cry about.

The “Fantastic Beasts” sequel has been directed by Davis Yates. The script has been written by JK Rowling. The film is set to introduce a younger Dumbledore (Jude Law). It will be released on Nov. 15 in Australia.
