Initially, Newt Scamander was only mentioned in Harry Potter and the Philosopher's Stone as the author of the book Fantastic Beasts and Where To Find Them, which was used as a textbook for Care of Magical Creatures by Harry Potter and his classmates.
Despite the fact that Newt is still alive during the Harry Potter series, he never meets Harry (and thus readers never see him) because his life does not intersect with Harry's. Newt would have most likely already retired by the time Harry was introduced to the wizarding world.
He attended Hogwarts School of Witchcraft and Wizardry, where he was sorted into Hufflepuff House. While at Hogwarts he was sentenced to expulsion, though Albus Dumbledore, who had been his Defence Against the Dark Arts instructor, recognised his innocence, and objected strongly.
Newt believed that magical creatures were not dangerous if treated with respect, and Buckbeak only attacked Malfoy when he disrespected him. Due to this, Newt would have gladly traveled to Hogwarts to defend Buckbeak and try to prevent his execution, causing him to appear on the Marauder's Map.
Since the map shows the location of every single person at Hogwarts at the given time, that means Newt Scamander was somewhere on the grounds at the school during that time. So, even though he wasn't featured on screen.
The real reason why Newt Scamander isn't in Hogwarts Legacy is that he wasn't born yet. This iconic character was born on February 24, 1897. While the game is set during these years, it would be almost impossible to see him in the game as he wouldn't have the age to attend Hogwarts.
Is Newt Scamander still alive in Harry Potter's time? Yes. In the mid-1990's, Newt retired to Dorset in the UK where he lives to this day. He was thrilled when his grandson and Luna Lovegood married and provided him with two great-grandchildren, Lorcan and Lysander.
Newton Artemis Fido "Newt" Scamander was a character in Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them by J.K. Rowling. He was very briefly mentioned in Harry Potter and the Philosopher's Stone. Newton Scamander was the pen name of Rowling when she wrote Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them for charity.
Did you spot Newt Scamander in Harry Potter and the Prisoner of Azkaban? You'd have to have the lamp-like eyes of Filch's cat Mrs Norris to spot this one: Newt Scamander actually appears in Harry Potter and the Prisoner of Azkaban, and not just as a name on a textbook.
He hunches, seems skittish around people, and often avoids eye contact. All of this anti-social behavior falls in line with Newt's introverted personality, but one Reddit user has a different theory. Newt acts this way because he approaches people the same way he approaches animals.
Initially, Newt Scamander was only mentioned in Harry Potter and the Philosopher's Stone as the author of the book Fantastic Beasts and Where To Find Them, which was used as a textbook for Care of Magical Creatures by Harry Potter and his classmates. In 2001, J. K.
He's Luna Lovegood's grandfather-in-law
Luna Lovegood ends up marrying Rolf Scamander, who is Newt's grandson. If grandson is anything like his grandfather — which is quite likely, as both are magizoologists — that means we can expect Newt to be a bit of an eccentric. His family history supports this.
As Scamander obtained his O.W.L.s, not only did he graduate from Hogwarts, he was also a qualified wizard. This means he is able to keep his wand, even though he was an underage wizard.
We are sure that Hufflepuffs the world over rejoiced in jubilation when Newt Scamander opened his suitcase to reveal a cheerful, yellow Hufflepuff scarf. Here's how the hero of Fantastic Beasts perfectly represents his Hogwarts house.
Scamander ended up at Hogwarts after his travels across five continents to study, collect, and protect fantastic beasts. So it's altogether possible that a younger Hagrid met a middle-aged Scamander at Hogwarts in the '40s.
Meanwhile, Newt was a Hufflepuff, who are known to be hard workers, loyal and dedicated. He rarely grew angry in Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them, but instead accepted his fate when he was arrested by Tina, and remained cool-headed after being given the death penalty (and fought his way out, of course).
No, on many reasons. Newt married Tina and had a child with her, not a giant and also, Hagrid's last name is, well Hagrid, so no, Newt isn't Hagrid's dad.
Voldemort has yet to appear in the Fantastic Beasts franchise, but he is still part of the overall timeline and it's possible to guess what he's doing during that time. The Fantastic Beasts series is part of the Harry Potter universe, and takes place years before the events of the Harry Potter film series.
Luna Lovegood Biography & History
Luna Scamander (née Lovegood) (1981) was a witch and a member of the Lovegood family.
We know that he was writing the forewords to a new edition of his book where he confirmed his role in the capture of Grindelwald (as shown in the Fantastic Beasts movie) in 2017, so he did become at least 119–120 years old, but he might simply have been too old to fight.
The name Gellert Grindelwald only appears in the archives later – in the first volume of the Harry Potter series where he is mentioned only briefly on the back of Albus Dumbledore's chocolate frog card.
Set seventy years before the adventures of Harry Potter and following the adventures of its fictional author Newt Scamander, the film would mark both Rowling's screenwriting debut and the first intended installment in a new series, tentatively entitled Fantastic Beasts.
There's only one answer, and it's that the Kelpie is Newt's Patronus. A Kelpie is a shape-shifting beast that lives within water. It is not to be approached by humans — unless they want to be eaten. Newt documented the Kelpie in his hit book Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them.
According to the text, Newt was expelled due to his possession of a Jarvey, which was both illegal to own and a violation of Animal Welfare Laws 101/304. In the Wizarding World, the Jarvey was a ferret-looking creature capable of human speech.
