Shhh...

Do You Agree With The Cast Of “Fantastic Beasts” In This Game Of Wizarding “Would You Rather”?

Ever since Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them came out in 2016, we’ve been eagerly awaiting the second instalment of the franchise. Now, two years later, Fantastic Beasts: The Crimes of Grindelwald is almost here, and we’re finally being blessed with even more information about J.K. Rowling’s wizarding world.

When BuzzFeed UK met with some of the cast of the series — Ezra Miller (Credence), Dan Fogler (Jacob), Claudia Kim (Nagini), Zoë Kravitz (Leta Lestrange), and Callum Turner (Theseus Scamander) — in London recently, the second film was still completely shrouded in secrecy. So we decided to challenge the stars to a little game of Would You Rather: Wizarding Edition. And now you can play along with them…

1. Would you rather have to wear a super-tall wizard’s hat every day for the rest of your life, or wear a wizard’s cloak with every outfit?

Dan Fogler: [to Ezra] I know your answer.

Ezra Miller: Both! I mean, if I was “required”, it would give me an excuse. That would be useful for me performing neurotypical behaviours.

Callum Turner: Some people actually do wear a wizard’s hat every day. Brooklyn, Shoreditch. That stuff happens.

Zoë Kravitz: I feel like I can wear different kinds of cloaks. I’d rock a cloak in a second.


  1. What about you? Are you a hat person, or all about that cloak?

    I’d definitely go with the hat.

    I’m with the cast — I could rock a cloak.

2. Would you rather go to Hogwarts or Ilvermorny?

Claudia Kim: Oooh, Hogwarts!

CT: Surely Hogwarts.

ZK: Yeah, Hogwarts for sure.

EM: We just know more about Hogwarts. It’s almost an unfair question to Ilvermorny.

CK: But Voldemort… Voldemort and Dumbledore were both at the same one, right?

EM: Hogwarts. But Grindelwald is from… [waits for Claudia to answer, then sings] Durmstrang! He went to Durmstrang!


  1. Are you filled with Hogwarts pride, or would you choose to explore Ilvermorny?

    I’m a Hogwartian through and through.

    I’d love to learn more about Ilvermorny!

3. Would you rather be an Auror like Theseus, or a magizoologist like Newt?

CT: An Auror, obviously.

ZK: Oh, no, I would definitely be a zoologist. [laughs] We love each other.


  1. How about you — what would your wizarding occupation be?

    I’m going with Newt — magizoologist all the way.

    I want to be an Auror like Theseus.

4. Would you rather get to explore Newt’s case or Dumbledore’s office?

EM: Dumbledore’s office.

DF: Yeah. I’ve been in Newt’s case, and that case is kind of stinky. There’s a lot of animals in there.

CK: Is it? I’d like to be in that case. I haven’t been there yet.

EM: Yeah, there’s cute creatures, but they’re also sooo dangerous. If you’re not Newt, I mean… Poor Jacob is a sitting duck.

ZK: Newt’s case. For sure.

CT: Yeah, 100%.


  1. Where would you prefer to explore?

    I’d want free rein in Newt’s magical case.

    I want to explore every corner of Dumbledore’s office.

5. In a duel, would you rather stun or disarm an opponent?

ZK: Stun.

CT: You like the stun, don’t you?

ZK: I like the stun. Stupefy!


  1. What would be your go-to move in a duel?

    I’d stun my opponent.

    I’d disarm my opponent.

6. Would you rather face a Boggart without magic, or face a Dementor without magic?

EM: A Boggart. But it is a deep question, and it plays a lot into what your sense of fear is. I’d rather just be like, “You’re right! There is nothing to fear but fear itself!” Rather than be like, there’s a thing and it’s going to suck my soul out of my body. And I don’t have any Patronus juice? No. No. NO.

ZK: This is just shitty. This is just a shitty situation.


  1. What’s your take on this question? Are you facing a Boggart or a Dementor?

    A Boggart — I can handle seeing my biggest fear IRL.

    A Dementor — my biggest fear is even bigger than a Dementor.

7. Would you rather live your life in the wizarding world but never be able to do magic, or just never know magic existed?

EM: So it’s would you rather be a Squib, or a Muggle who never figures it out. I’d rather be a Muggle who never figures it out.

CK: A Muggle, yeah.

DF: That’s like not knowing love, man. That’s like not knowing a cool summer wind.

ZK: I think I’d rather live in the wizarding world and not be able to do magic. It’d be shitty, but at least I’d be able to witness magical things.

CT: I believe in magic anyway, so…

ZK: But you wouldn’t know it existed.

CT: But I do know it exists.


  1. This one’s tough — but what would you rather?

    I’d rather be a Muggle who knew magic existed.

    I’d rather just never know magic existed at all.

8. Would you rather be the true master of the Elder Wand, or be the owner of the Invisibility Cloak?

EM: Elder Wand.

DF: Elder Wand.

CK: Cloak.

EM: I mean, yours is the non-amateur answer, because you know, in the original mythology, if you use the Elder Wand, then everyone’s after you and they want to fight you because you have the Elder Wand. We are the three brothers right now, and Claudia survived.

ZK: An Invisibility Cloak is a pretty dope thing to have. I could get onto planes people don’t know I’m on. I could go see movies for free. I could steal pizza out of pizza places.

CT: You could do better things with an Invisibility Cloak, that’s all I’m saying.

ZK: Like what? What would you do?

CT: Like, go round people’s houses, get gossip. Actually put it to good use.

ZK: Actually, that’s probably what I would do as well. [laughs]


  1. It’s time to put yourself into the shoes of the Three Brothers — would you choose the Elder Wand or the Invisibility Cloak?

    The Elder Wand — I’m all about that power.

    The Invisibility Cloak is obviously the right choice.

9. Would you rather have Queenie’s mind-reading power, or be able to turn invisible like a Demiguise?

EM: I’ll go for the invisibility this time. The whole constant mind-reading thing is obviously a cursey, cursey gift.

ZK: I mean, I think reading people’s minds seems exhausting. It feels like you live in Twitter. Like, I don’t want to be there. I don’t even want to be in my own head half the time. So I guess Demiguise.


  1. Which power would you choose? Mind reading or invisibility?

    I’d definitely want to read people’s minds.

    Reading minds is a curse — I’m going with invisibility.

10. Would you rather be a performer at the Circus Arcanus, or be one of Grindelwald’s followers?

CK: [to Ezra and Dan] I mean, this one is for you guys. I’m already a performer at the Circus Arcanus.

EM: I think you’re more thoroughly entrapped as one of Grindelwald’s followers, because you’re in the clutch of his silver tongue.


  1. It’s basically a lose-lose situation, but would you rather be trapped by Grindelwald or the Circus Arcanus?

    I’m staying away from Grindelwald — it’d be the circus for me.

    I’d rather be one of Grindelwald’s followers than perform in that circus.

ZK: Probably one. You could focus on one thing. A hundred is a lot to focus on.

CT: Nifflers are quite big as well, so if there’s 100 of them…

ZK: It’s a lot. And where do you look?

CT: It depends what sort of fight as well. Is it a pillow fight?

ZK: Or a street fight?


  1. It’s the classic Would You Rather: 100 Niffler-sized Erumpents, or one Erumpent-sized Niffler?

    I could definitely take on 100 Niffler-sized Erumpents.

    An Erumpent-sized Niffler would be adorable, I’m going with that!

DF: Hufflepuff.

CT: Well, now that I’m a Hufflepuff, I have to stick to Hufflepuff.

ZK: I haven’t done the test yet, but I feel pretty Ravenclaw.

CT: But you’re a Slytherin, though.

ZK: Well, my character is, but are we talking about our characters, or us as people? You think I’m a Slytherin, me, Zoë? Leta’s Slytherin. But I, Zoë, am Slytherin?

CT: It’s not a bad thing!

30 Tiiiiiiny Details You Probably Missed In “Big Mouth” Season 2

1.

In the beginning of Season 2, Episode 1, the school sign references the unsolved mystery of the Ponytail Murderer from the first season.


Netflix

In Season 1, detectives investigated a “Ponytail Killer” who chops off girls’ ponytails before killing them, but they never ended up solving the case.


Netflix

John Mulaney voices Andrew, Detective Florez, and several minor characters in the series.

3.

Also relating back to Mulaney’s standup, when Nick and Andrew are changing in the locker room, Andrew tells Nick that he could use his oversized jersey as a night shirt.


Netflix

This is a reference to his comedy special Kid Gorgeous, where Mulaney jokes: “Dear IRS, please deduct from my federal income tax one XXL Billabong T-shirt from youth. It was too big. My mom said it could be a sleep shirt. Please deduct this from my 2017 income.”

4.

More of Maury the hormone monster’s tattoos are revealed when he shaves in solidarity with Andrew.


Netflix

He has “Connie” — the name of Jessi’s hormone monstress — on his forearm, Cap’n Crunch (from his days as a marine) on his other forearm, and “I’m with stupid” and an arrow above his butt.

5.

When Jessi and Jay go to the diner, a waitress can be seen carrying blue waffles, which refers to the notoriously-googled and NSFW fake STI.

6.

When Nick’s talking to Gina and Rick, the hormone monster, appears, an ad for Guy Town can be seen in the background.

7.

When Andrew goes to the temple to ask the rabbi for advice on how not to masturbate, the temple is called Temple Beth Amphetamine.

8.

When Nick and Rick are leaving the Friend Zone to go to the Fuck Zone, Rick gets hit by three trucks, two of which have hidden messages.


Netflix

One is “Just Friends Moving Co” and the other has a picture of Jay’s dad and says “Stop watching Jay’s dad’s law commercials” with the phone number 555-LUV-DIES.

9.

When Nick and Andrew take Devon and Lola on a double-date, the mini golf place they go to is called Golf Lundgren, which is a twist on Swedish actor Dolph Lundgren‘s name.


Netflix, Matt Winkelmeyer / Getty Images

10.

They also make references to Lundgren’s movies — like Rocky IV — with the snack specials.

11.

When he’s trying to impress Gina, Nick does his spot-on Coach Steve impression — which is easy since Nick and Coach Steve are both voiced by Nick Kroll.


Netflix

Nick Kroll is also one of the creators of Big Mouth.

12.

In a flashback to their first date, Jessi’s dad smokes up Jessi’s mom from his “Matchbox 420” weed box.

13.

When Jessi’s in her basement, you can spot a “The Bowling Dudes” poster which is a nod to The Big Lebowski.


Netflix, Working Title Films

14.

Connie, Jessi’s hormone monster, refers to weed as a “goat cheese omelet,” which then makes subtle appearances throughout the season.

15.

And after Nick calls Andrew “LBW” — “Lola’s Boyfriend…Wow” — this appears on the school sign.

16.

The first of the season’s several Aerosmith references pops up as a Glade plugin at Lola’s condo.

17.

When the Shame Wizard offers Maury drugs at Lola’s condo, he gives him these.


Netflix

It’s like the sedative Klonopin, or in this case, Klo-LOLA-pin. And Lolaine is like cocaine, okay, you get it.

18.

The knickknacks in Missy’s house include this bird-boob bust of Gina and these little figurines — one with large breasts and one with a big penis.


Netflix

Very on brand for Big Mouth.

19.

Also on the topic of miscellaneous sexual objects, there’s a recurring Fleshlight throughout Episode 7.

20.

When the Shame Wizard starts DJing the sleepover, the song playing is a remix to The Kroll Show theme song.


Comedy Central

Listen to The Kroll Show theme song here.

21.

Coach Steve tossing his pubes into the air was a nod to Lebron James’ iconic chalk toss.


Netflix, Christian Petersen / Getty Images

22.

The writers threw in a couple cultural references in the bathroom graffiti: “Where are the ball hairs?” from American Vandal and “I miss Vine,” which every millennial says.

23.

What’s more, the phone number on the bathroom wall is the home phone number of the Simpsons, and “Eat my sharts” is a nod to Bart Simpson specifically.


Netflix

What’s even MORE, the “113” from the phone number is a reference to classroom A113 at CalArts where many great animators got their starts.

24.

Tyler the hormone monster refers to the Shame Wizard as “the floaty guy with the Harry Potter accent,” because the Shame Wizard is voiced by David Thewlis (aka Remus Lupin in Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows.)


Netflix, Warner Bros.

25.

The Ponytail Killer makes a second appearance later in the series when they swerve to avoid Coach Steve and a victim is able to escape.


Netflix

Note the ponytail hanging from the dashboard!!!

26.

When Missy’s doing her worm dance, a reference to the scene in Lord of the Flies when Piggy is killed can be seen in the background.


Netflix, Castlerock Entertainment

Watch the scene from Lord of the Flies here.

27.

Matthew’s locker has pictures of Ariana Grande, Morrissey, and a copy of The Importance of Being Earnest, which was written by Oscar Wilde, who, like Matthew, was persecuted for being gay and seen as “different.”

28.

When Nick and Andrew go to Maury’s office, you can see a note reminding him to buy Aerosmith tickets in the background, as well as a picture of him inducting Joe Walsh into the Rock & Roll Hall of Fame.

29.

When Jessi and the boys go to the Puberty Headquarters, it’s learned that each of the monsters have their own area of adolescent expertise.


Netflix

This includes the Hormone Monstress, Intellect Sphinx, D.N.Ape, Ambition Gremlin, Anxiety Armadillo, and later, the Depression Kitty.
