  • J.K. Rowling recently gave more insight into the backstory of Nagini, Voldemort’s snake in “Harry Potter” who appears as a woman in the prequel series, “Fantastic Beasts.”
  • Rowling previously revealed that Nagini is a Maledictus, which means she carries a blood curse that will doom her to transform permanently into a beast.
  • In a film extra called “Credence, Nagini and the Circus Arcanus,” available on the “Crimes of Grindelwald” Blu-ray, Rowling said she “knew all along about Nagini.”
  • “Now, there were always hints that she had been human,” Rowling said. “In her name — because the Naga are, in mythology, a race of snake beings. So the name was an allusion to the fact that she may herself once have been human.”
  • In Hinduism, Buddhism, and Jainism, Nagas are mythical beings that can choose to appear as either human or cobra.

J.K. Rowling recently gave more insight into one of the most controversial characters in the Wizarding World: Nagini, who was known only as Voldemort’s snake in “Harry Potter,” but appears as a woman in the prequel series, “Fantastic Beasts.”

“These movies have given me the chance to tell a story that I knew all along about Nagini, who appears only as a snake in ‘Potter,'” Rowling revealed in a film extra called “Credence, Nagini and the Circus Arcanus,” available on the “Crimes of Grindelwald” Blu-ray.
