  1. The girl who becomes Nagini is a maledictus. A maledictus is a blood curse that makes them change into an animal later in life. She is not in snake form in this film, but seems to change, which might be adding to what we know about the curse. Voldemort’s mother is Merope Gaunt who, based on her story in the books, wouldn’t be the same person. She has a sad story in the books and is terrorized by her family.

  2. The MACUSA created No-Maj segregation with Rappaports Law after a security breach where the MACUSA headquarters and Ilvermorny locations became known to a no-maj.

  3. Bellatrix Lestrange married into the Lestrange family through Rodolphus Lestrange. Her maiden name is Black. She is a cousin of Sirius Black.
