Eddie Redmayne couldnt look happier as he greeted fans at a promotional event for Fantastic Beasts: The Crimes of Grindelwald.

Set for a magical evening at The Wizarding World of Harry Potter in Universal Studios, the Newt Scamander actor was joined by Jude Law, who plays Dumbledore, and Zoe Kravitz, starring as Leta Lestrange.

A true Hufflepuff, he grinned the whole evening.

The actor signed autographs and took selfies with adoring fans, with many rocking Hogwarts uniforms at the Hollywood event.

Some even dressed as Queenie and Tina Goldstein from the first Fantastic Beasts film, getting the costumes spot on.

You know how Tom Cruise did that thing to his ankle when he leapt across a tall building? he asked Graham.

Well, I was on set of a quite hardcore “stunty” thing about two people in a hot air balloon and they had this crash mat beneath the balloon in case you fell out. I walked on to the crash mat, tripped on it and fell and sprained my ankle.

Very smooth, Eddie. Very smooth.
