The Harry Potter spinoff Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them has conjured up one more notable name for its cast: Zoe Kravitz.

The Warner Bros. film, which stars Eddie Redmayne, Katherine Waterston, Dan Fogler, Ezra Miller and Alison Sudol, is set in New York 70 years before the events in the Harry Potter books and film series. It follows Newt Scamander (Redmayne), a Magizoologist who ventures into a secret community of witches and wizards as he attempts to document magical creatures. His book is eventually used at Hogwarts, where Harry Potter attends school.

Sources say Kravitz, who was added after production began, has a small role in the first Fantastic Beasts film (which is now in postproduction) but there's the possibility for her to return with a meatier part in the sequel. Ahead of the first film's release on Nov. 18, Warner Bros. has already dated the sequel for Nov. 16, 2018.
