The BBC have today announced that a special Fantastic Beasts And Where To Find Them minisode will form a part of their annual Children In Need telethon. The sketch will see Eddie Redmayne (Les Miserables) as magizoologist Newt Scamander team up with Pudsey Bear. It will also feature a number of celebrity cameos; which celebrities will appear in the minisode however has yet to be confirmed.

Eddie Redmayne said of the Children In Need segment “I have such fond memories of Children in Need. Growing up, I loved watching all the special sketches and performances, and of course, Sir Terry Wogan’s inimitable presenting.  It is a charity very close to my heart so you can only imagine how chuffed I was to be asked to do a special sketch for this year. I can’t wait for you all to see what we have in store,”

Children In Need will air on Friday 18th November at 7:30pm on BBC1. Graham Norton will stand in for the late Sir Terry Wogan as the telethon’s main presenter. This year’s telethon will also include an Olympics-themed Strictly Come Dancing, starring Silver Taekwondo medallist Lutalo Muhammad, Gold Hockey medallist Hollie Webb, canoer Joe Clarke and rower Helen Glover.
