Behind the scenes
- Transylvania is known to have competed in the 1473 Quidditch World Cup. Historically, this region was part of the Kingdom of Hungary at the time, even though it is seemingly mentioned as an independent country in canon (whether this is the case in wizarding jurisdictions is unknown).
- In discussing the scene from the film inspired by Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them in the Pentagram Office, Colin Farrell praised Colleen Atwood's costuming: "There must have been two hundred actors and extras all in the different costumes. Wizards from Hungary, from Mongolia, from Russia, from Thailand, from Ireland, and from Pakistan. It was amazing. They all had culturally relevant garb but with a little wizarding flourish."
