News. News. And MORE NEWS.

Ok, right, we probably have some explaining to do. Yes, you are correct; the first half/ 3/8 of this post will be one of those apology posts. Sozzles. If you want to go to the bit after the apology click here.

You are probably asking your screen right now why the heck we haven’t uploaded in so long and you have every right to do so (if you’re not; welcome to/ welcome back to the website) and, yes, welcome back to all you fine folk who have been waiting. Thanks for the patience btdubs.

The reason we haven’t been posting recently is two things flat out- 1) Laziness. 2) There just hasn’t been anything to post about really. We have been quietly updating the main post about Fantastic Beasts: The Crimes of Grindlewald for most of the time cos there just hasn’t been much BIG news recently. Just pictures and stuff. 

I said laziness as well for one of the reasons and that is definitely a valid reason. No elaborate excuse. No cover up story. None of that. Just the real reason. Laziness. We just haven’t uploaded really. Also, Ethan and I have not had much time to upload posts and that’s a bit of the reasoning behind it. We are both relatively busy at the moment. Again, sorry.

Seriously, we want to upload more. Like, really, really, REALLY want to upload more, it may seem like the opposite but we really do; we just need a bit more time to post quality content. We don’t want to rush all of our posts and give you guys mediocre content. We want this site to be as you want and how you like it (The comments are great btw; they really help). We don’t want to give you stuff that is just plain awful and so because of this I am not going to promise new posts but I can promise one thing……… Niffler Fan Club will never be forgotten by us. It will be posted to. At least, LEAST once a month. Bare minimum. Sorry.


First off, a newsletter. A few of you have been asking for a bit of a newsletter or notifications or something for when we post or when we have updates about the life of the site and we are probably gonna put something like that together in the not so far future. We could possibly even get an app for the website that would send you push notifications for when ever we post or something. Whaddya think? Tell us. Your view is valued. 🙂 

Second, we are literally surveying, scanning, going over and over and over Pottermore, Twitter, Facebook, Instagram, Screen Rant, Reddit, Discord, Mashable, The Verge, Every flippin newspaper on the internet and yes, even Google+ *bleh* to find any Fantastic Beasts: The Crimes Of Grindlewald news so that we can put together another post and if we find a very small piece of info, we will just add that to the main news post/page for the film that we have. We hope to get another huge news drop at some time soon like we had in October/November/December so that we can have some huge post that mashes together all of the other posts.

Next, a very small piece of info for you; The main news post for The Crimes of Grindlewald will most likely become a page instead of a post,  considering the size of it. Almost 1,000 words. Yeesh. For a post. Dang. That’s big.

Fourth, we are going to start acting on more comments to add new features to the website from all you lovely folk out there. It really helps when we get comments from you guys about stuff we could add to the website to make it better for you. An example of one of these useful suggestion comments that has been acted on is the suggestion of the addition of social media buttons/links. Great idea! Basically, what I am trying to say is that we will try to act on these great suggestions more. Keep ’em comin’! Btw, we CANNOT add a Niffler game before any of you ask. Reasons; 

  • Copyright of the trademarked name of the Niffler
  • Copyright of the trademarked name of Fantastic Beasts®
  • Copyright of the image of the Niffler
  • The Warner Bros™ ‘Fair Use’ Copyright law (Which a game would be a breach of)
  • Using Warner Bros™ proprietary trademarked property without express permission 
  • The amount of time required
  • The amount of code needed

Cleared Up? Good. Or bad. Depending on your reaction. Anyway, if you’re not happy, tough. We don’t like going to court. We got other stuff to do than get sued by a £bn/$bn company.

Fifth and finally, we will be uploading more quizzes and fun stuff in the near future. How near this future is, we do not know yet. But it is definitely coming.

Thanks for Reading! and if you made it this far; good on you. Have a gold star! 🙂

P.S- So far there has been no more word of the Niffler spin off series. Sad times. 🙁 But we will keep looking! Seriously though. It must come. Soon. Otherwise we may go on a bit of a rant. You don’t want to be around when that happens…

The life of our website

You know the drill; every now and then we do a slightly more serious post considering you guys and the current life of the website. This time we are asking for suggestions. More specifically comments considering the appearance of the website. Please tell us what you want us to do to the website in order to make it better for you guys. That is what we are built on. The fan base are loyal to us and we are even more loyal to the fan base (well, we try to be. But that’s near impossible 😉 ). You may have noticed that we added social media buttons to the sidebar- more specifically Twitter and Facebook. That was because of you guys commenting and asking for it. So we did it. Like I said on Twitter- any suggestions would be welcomed with open arms. Until next time……

OOOOOHHHHH, and btdubs please try not to suggest anything that will (if we do it) get us sued by the money sucking co-operation that is Warner Bros.®. Thanks. Much appreciated. We don’t like getting sued.


FBaWTFT2 news

Ok, so first thing first; we really need to get a better abbreviation for the new FB film than FBaWTFT2 (Like, really, REALLY, REALLY need one) because that just looks straight up dumb. Try saying it I’ll put it in phonetically for you: *clears throat* Fuh-Buh-Ah-Wuh-Tuh-Fuh-Tuh-To. Yeah. That. Please think of something and comment that would be muchos appreciated. Thanks.

The reason I made this post was not to rant about how hard it is to pronounce whatever that……..THING is- however entertaining that might be; I did it because there had been some new Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them 2 ® news. And the reason I didn’t just update the FBAWTFT2 post like you want me to and yes, I know that you’re thinking that this post is a waste of time but here’s why I did it here:- we have the name of two new actors who will be in the film. Not characters. ACTORS.

Now you can see why I posted it here – and if you still haven’t caught on to why – 1) PAY ATTENTION. 2) Learn to extrapolate from incomplete data (yes, exactly like the joke). 3) It’s cos it’s a very small piece of info so it really isn’t update worthy.

The 2 new actors that have been announced are Jessica Williams and Fiona Glascott and there is actually one more but we know who HE is going to play so that will be over on the page subject to updates 😏😅😉.

So we know that these are going to be two female characters (AND FOR GOODNESS SAKE DON’T JUST ASSUME BECAUSE WE ARE MAKING THE POINT THAT THEY ARE BOTH FEMALE AND CAPITALISED THE WORD ‘He’ MEANS WE ARE AGAINST WOMEN IN THIS FILM IN ANY WAY WHATSOEVER – Just to get that cleared up. Now that’s over – back to the post..) So I’m guessing we might just have to wait and see; I’ll keep you guys posted (quite literally) as it goes along. Until then, PEACE!

P.S- Clue to male characters’ role- in a certain film a certain someone reads a certain book about a certain person who died on their 666th birthday…. 🍰

Niffler spin-off series rumours (and no we are NOT joking)

As you all know we are a fan site about Nifflers and this morning I was scrolling through Twitter and I discovered something that would be very improper to not upload to the site. So here it is. LET’S GET TO IT

What I discovered on the Pottermore® Twitter page made my face light up with excitement. An article. On the Pottermore ® website titled ‘Why the Niffler should have his own spin-off series’ and I clicked on that beast of a link (which you can find right here) and I read it and read it and read it and read it and read it and the whole time I was thinking to myself ‘WHERE THE HECK IS THE FLIPPIN’ PETITION FOR THIS?’

I really enjoyed this article and I am very happy that the people who work with the extended universe of Harry Potter have finally realised the extreme response to the Niffler.

I don’t know if this might be a bit of a hint hint to something that might be in production but I guess we’ll just have to wait and see.

We’re modern now!!

Hey guys it’s now the truth that we have Social Media!!!!! So follow our Twitter account. Also, is ya feel like it follow our Facebook page have fun!!!! This also means that you 21st Century people have an excuse to go on Social media while looking at our website so you don’t have to speed read our pages anymore because you desperately want to check your Twitter/Facebook and yes all you fancy people with your Android 7.0 and iPhone 6+ and up split screens (as long as the iPhone is iPhone{x}+) must be rolling your eyes right now saying to yourselves “but I can already do that anyways! Why is he bothering with this post?” Well mister whoever you are i’ll tell you exactly why I am bothering with this post. It’s because not all of us have fancy-shmansey split-screen enabled phones! Sorry for ranting but I just knew a few people would be saying that. Ooh, by the way a little note- All links will open in a new tab.

What’s going on…..

Ok everybody, we AGAIN have not uploaded for like two months and I don’t really have an excuse for that. Yes I could say that we are on Summer Holiday but that’s just gonna wear out after a while.

We will try to still provide informative and fun articles that don’t make you want to fall asleep. Even if we have to just upload a random post now and then that makes no sense we will definitely be uploading more stuff when it gets closer to the release of Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them 2 ® (my goodness we Really REALLY HONESTLY MUST GET THE LICENSING FOR THAT. SERIOUSLY MY PHONE HAS THE ® SYMBOL ON PREDICTIVE. FLIPPIN’ ‘ECK) until then we will keep on updating the FB2 post. Anyways thanks for staying with us and thanks for taking our excuses and our crap 👊 👍 🙂 

So…..uuuuuummmmm……Uuuuuuuhhhh…..Yeah…..See you later…….

The Niffler plush……

Ok, so the Niffler plush toy has finally been released and it’s so amazing and fantastic how AWFUL, TERRIBLE, ATROCIOUS WHATEVER YOU WANT TO CALL IT EXCUSE FOR A STUFFED NIFFLER IT IS. IT IS AS UGLY AS A MERTLAP WHEN SHE HAS MEASLES. JUST LOOK AT IT.

Atrocious Niffler Plush

WHAT THE HECK IS THAT? How could they? We have been waiting for this ever since the movie came out and they give us this. If you want me to attach a link to this article to buy it later on but I won’t right now. 

So just to go off topic quickly; sorry for not posting pretty much this entire month. We have been extremely busy and we have not been able to post much. Thanks for staying with us and not going anywhere else. We will post much more in June, July and August because we will have a Niffler load of free time 😉 😉 🙂 . 

Back on topic-we are not at all happy with the outcome of this plush. If I got this I would plush it down the toilet. See what I did there? Eh? Eh? Eh? XD. Ok, so like I said, we will put it on if you want to buy it but you know, not right now. For obvious reasons.

It looks like it was made by a 4 year old who has seen the Niffler once for about 5 seconds. We saw it and thought ‘we have to rant about this’ and we think that it deserves a rant. The Niffler has a certain glory to it. This glory has been abolished, destroyed, incinerated what ever you may call it. But we don’t like it. 

In the mean time-here is a picture of a proper Niffler in all of his glory.

Actual Niffler in all glory

Aaaaaaaaaaaaw! I just noticed how compressed that picture looks/becomes on some platforms. But I think you can guess what the picture is. It is adorable.


Thanks to you all we have reached the first page (from the 12th) of results on Google when you search Niffler Fan Club. That is all because of YOU. Each and every one of you. I think i speak for me and Ethan when i say Thank you. Carrying on coming back here for awesome comment and don’t forget to trend the hashtag #NifflerFanClub Thank you all. I know the whole reason for this post doesn’t sound like much but it shows that we have grown and that people like us. We will keep posting awesome content for you awesome people as we carry on. Stay Nifflery!!!

Fantastic Beasts: The Crimes Of Grindelwald

Ok, so as you most likely already know, Fantastic Beasts and Where To Find Them 2 HAS BEEN CONFIRMED! (So, obviously JK Rowling definitely wants loads more money *cough* expected *cough*) Also, they’ve actually given it an original name (which was totally unexpected) which you can see in the info section and obviously in the pic above. This also means it’s definitely going to happen which we of course, are happy about. We also this week got a cast photo from the new movie which is cool.

But there is one little thing we think about the upcoming film……- If the Niffler isn’t in it -WE ARE NOT WATCHING THAT THING-FULL-STOP.* But here is everything we already know about the movie.

Btw; here area few quick links if you want to skip to certain parts…


This movie will be the second movie in this pentology and will take place in 1920s Paris. It has now been confirmed on Pottermore® that in this movie Eddie Redymane’s Newt Scamander will be teaming up with the absolutely badass young Albus Dumbledore to track down and try to defeat Gellert Grindlewald in Paris. There will also be a bit that tales place in London for a small part of the film. But we do not know the full details of that yet. Seriously. That’s all we know about the London part of this movie;—-that there is going to be one. So interesting. Anyways….. on to the next part (I know this sequel already sounds flippin’ AMAZING and I am so flippin’ jazzed to see it. I would give flippin’ anything to watch it right now FLIPPIDY FLIP FLIP FLIP).  


So-happy day-Eddie Redymane will be reprising his role as Newt Scamander in the upcoming movie. We are glad this is the case as he brought total justice to the character in the first film. We have also seen a few photos of him on set the past few days. Would you like to see them?????

You may have noticed he has his want in one of them….

We also know that Thesius Scamander (Newt’s Brother) will be present in this movie and will be played by Callum Turner. I have no flippin’ idea who he is by the way so don’t quote me on it when I say he’ll do well in this role 😉

We also know that Johnny Depp will be taking on the role of Gellert Grindelwald again. Should be fun. Nothing really new.

But now for the bit you are most likely shouting at you screen for (apart from Nifflers) of course Jude Law is going to play the part of young Albus Dumbledore in this sequel. Hopefully he brings justice to this treasured character.

And every other main character in the first movie will have the same actors reprising their previous roles.

Also…… Zoe Kravitz will be playing the role of Leta Lestrange in the fantastically named sequel for Fantastic Beasts ® (see what I did there? Ay? Ay? Ay?). I think that this is a wise choice and she will do very well in this role and will not disappoint.

And another thing; recently a character has been announced for Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them 2 ® and I bet you are itching to know who this character is. Well, I’m gonna be like one of those annoying YouTube® ads that never tells you what the thing they are talking about actually is because you have to click on a link or, if you like, one of those dodgy PPI links at the bottom of a website or the stuff like ‘never buy a lottery ticket till you read this’ and I’m gonna get the boring stuff out so here we go- This character will be played by none other than another actor that nobody has ever heard of called Brontis Jodorowsky (I legit had to copy and paste that in there). I hope he will do well in this movie as (drumroll please)………………….. Nicholas Flamel! 🎉 Yes, Nick himself. The one who died on his 666th birthday. Hopefully Brontis will do well. We wish him luck in playing one of the most obscure characters in film history. 

There will also be two new characters who we don’t know the name of YET played by Jessica Williams and Fiona Glascott in the movie.

We also have some (probably) more minor characters and a few (also possibly) major ones who are named as follows: Wolf Roth (as a character called Spielman) Victoria Yeates as Bunty, Derek Riddell as Torquil Travers, Poppy Corby-Tuech as Rosier and Cornell S John as Arnold Guzman. (Two of these name should stand out to you if your are a TRUE Harry Potter® fan;- see if you can find them)….

Release Date

16th November 2018 


Fantastic Beasts: The Crimes of Grindelwald



Movie series number




Amount of Nifflers

N/A 🙁 🙁 (Hopefully more than last time, but one would be enough 😉 ) By the way the only reason we did this category was because we are a Niffler orientated website and it wouldn’t be a NFC* post without something to do with Nifflers. 🙂

We will carry on updating this post as more information is given to us about the upcoming film and it’s features. We hope you are looking forward to seeing this greedy for money, totally originally named sequel as much as we are. Stay Nifflery!!!!


Disclaimer: we will still watch the movie if the literal cash grabbing niffler isn’t in it; we just won’t like it as much. In fact we probably might not like it at all. Nifflers for life Rowling. Nifflers for life.

*For all you techy guys (and gals) out there- when I say BED I DO NOT mean Near Field Communications. I mean Niffler Fan Club. Obviously. (Imagine the word obviously there is said like how Snape says it in Order of the Phoenix. 😂



Just to clarify-we are not dead 🙂 we have a very cool and fun and informative post coming up soon about a very cool topic. We will try and post as often as possible but thanks for sticking with us. Stay Nifflery! P.S: in the mean time it would really help out is you spread the word about us on Facebook, Twitter etc. On Twitter you can use the hashtags – #NifflerFanClub or #nifflersforlife or #nifflerfanclub -Thank Yooooooooooou!
