With the excitement of Fantastic Beasts: Dumbledore’s Secrets from London to Kansas City and beyond, there’s no shortage of exciting real-world events alongside the latest fantastic beasts movie.
One of the featured countries in Dumbledore’s secrets is Brazil, and the character Vicência Santos (played by Brazilian actress Maria Fernanda Cândido) is not the only connection to Brazil in the fantastic beasts franchise. Eduardo Lima, half of the graphic design duo MinaLima, is also Brazilian.
In fact, Lima showed the insignia of the Brazilian Ministry of Magic (or “Ministerio da Magia dos Estados Unidos do Brasil,” in Portuguese) on MinaLima’s Twitter account before the Brazilian premiere of Dumbledore’s secrets. Lima posed with the banner and provided some close-ups of the insignia’s details, including gemstones and feathers in yellow, green and blue.
It was a proud moment to create the insignia of the Ministério da Magia dos Estados Unidos do Brasil for The #SecretsOfDumbledore a few months ago, it’s an even prouder moment to come to Brazil this week for the movie premiere and see them on screen with all my fellow Brazilians! pic.twitter.com/pN5TkNXxHz

Another banner, encouraging the public to vote for Vicência Santos, can be seen in the post.
Cândido was also present at the Brazilian premiere of Dumbledore’s secrets and was photographed with Lima, as seen in an Instagram video posted by @hpbrazil and filmed by @cacocardassi.
Halfway around the world, in his native Denmark, Mads Mikkelsen (Gellert Grindelwald) recently attended the Danish premiere of Dumbledore’s secrets.
