Behind the scenes

  • This wand will appear in the film adaptations of Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them. The wand design was influenced by actress Alison Sudol and was meant to reflect Queenie's personality — reports describe it as "sexy" and with an Art Deco-inspired design.[4]
  • Its black shaft and small handle for the fingers to grip it is similar to first prop wand for Hermione Granger, which was used in the first two Harry Potter films.
  • Both this wand and Newt Scamander's wand were used to conjure a transparent umbrella from the wand tip by a unknown spell in Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them.
  • In the book The Case of Beasts: Explore the Film Wizardry of Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them, the entry for Queenie's wand reads, "'Queenie's wand had a shell design, like a piece of mother pearl that had been sculptured into a snail's shell shape,' says head prop maker Pierre Bohanna. 'It had a very simple shaft to it, made out of dark rosewood.'"[3]
  • On the information for the replica of Queenie Goldstein's wand on the website Film Jackets, it lists the wand's length as "15 inches long". The Noble Collection lists the wand replica's length as "around 14 inches long". On Pottermore, Garrick Ollivander notes that wands of 15" or longer ("very long") are "exceptionally rare". Ollivander also states, "In my experience, longer wands might suit taller wizards, but they tend to be drawn to bigger personalities, and those of a more spacious and dramatic style of magic. Neater wands favour more elegant and refined spell-casting...Most wands will be in the range of between nine and fourteen inches. While I have sold extremely short wands (eight inches and under) and very long wands (over fifteen inches), these are exceptionally rare."[5]
