Jude Law & Eddie Redmayne Surprised A Bunch Of Muggles At King’s Cross

Every year in London on the 1st of September, a huge amount of muggles gather at King’s Cross railway station for ‘Back to Hogwarts’ day. This year, as we await Fantastic Beasts: The Crimes of Grindelwald, a young Professor Dumbledore (Jude Lawand Newt Scamander (Eddie Redmayne) hurried to make the 11:00am Hogwarts Express due to depart from Platform 9¾.

Yep, young daddy Dumbledore and Redmayne surprised a boatload of fans turning what is already an exciting day into a full-blown fanfare.


Imagine the line to grab a pic with these two.

Everyone got involved with the magic for the day including the London North Eastern Railway Twitter account who announced: “Due to International Statute of Secrecy, we’re unable to confirm if the 11:00 #Kingscross to #Edinburgh is the Hogwarts Express, but we would advise all muggles to stay away from Platform 9¾.

You gotta admit, this is very cool:

Official announcements were also made over the loudspeaker accompanied by Harry Potter‘s iconic theme song. As you’ll see from the video, fans rocked up to King’s Cross in costume and equipped with their wands.

While only Law and Redmayne visited King’s Cross, other cast members took part in a video message for ‘Back to Hogwarts’ day including Ezra Miller and his insane jawline.
