1. Backstory The name "Nagini" confirmed by @jk_rowling named after Indonesian mythical creature "Naga". pic.twitter.com/vo0vCMPOdR

my opinion about her tweet. It's not wrong that she said that "The Naga are snake-like mythical creature of Indonesian mythology" because it's true, even tho that mythology is also influenced by other cultures. pic.twitter.com/vLNP9R84IZ

I think she should've give the "complete picture" that the word "naga" itself is a Sanskrit word of Indian origin. pic.twitter.com/COXSDFeJLo

but why she refers to Indonesia instead of India? maybe because she took inspiration from how Javanese and Balinese depicted naga as giant magical serpent, I can notice the similarity to Nagini. pic.twitter.com/cJIJp3vBVw

That's about Nagini name, but is she also from Indonesia? There's an poster for Maledictus on the photo of Louis Beauchamp (@/LouisStevenson9) who got the chance to visit the film set. pic.twitter.com/Ld1mCTSnl7

It's likely the poster for Nagini circus show. "DES PROFONDEURS DE LA JUNGLE INDONÉSIENNE" "from the depths of the Indonesian jungle" pic.twitter.com/1zDVwEH70O

Acha Septriasa, an Indonesian actress who got casting offer for Nagini role but eventually choose to drop from the casting process because she was pregnant said that Maledictus is a queen of snake from Kalimantan (Borneo) Indonesia. pic.twitter.com/lsU9YqrO56

so based on those "evidence" I think it's safe to assume that Nagini is from Indonesia. pic.twitter.com/bz2gv6rJth

maybe she roamed in Borneo rain forest but and captured by the Dutch (Indonesia was colonized by the Dutch) and brought to Europe where she became a circus attraction 🤔 pic.twitter.com/7qOskDvIUt

Borneo is also famous for its giant man-eating snakes. Those giant snake are often referred as ular naga (dragon serpent). bbc.com/earth/story/20… pic.twitter.com/oFL4lt1GDY

so in conclusion Nagini come from Borneo is rather make sense backstory than Java or Bali, even tho The Naga mythology in Indonesia is from Javanese/Balinese culture.

end- another interesting thing: I wonder if this poster is historically accurate, that poster likely dated back in 1927 but Indonesia declared their independence in 1945. Even tho the name Indonesia founded way before Indonesia independence 🤔 but for a circus poster? pic.twitter.com/qznnK9anVY

NAGINI di Fantastic Beast: The Crime of Grindelwald semestinya diperankan oleh Acha Septriasa. Ya! Aktris Indonesia yang sayangnya waktu itu dia sedang hamil 7 bulan. Ini buktinya. The role of Nagini in Fantastic Beast was supposed to be played by an Indonesian actress. pic.twitter.com/NOnJxk35T2

Too bad that the Indonesian actress, Acha Septriasa, had to pass the role due to her 7 months of pregnancy. Do you wonder why the role of Nagini need to be played by an Asian actress? This French book, Venu des Profondeurs de la Jungle Indonésienne, tells it. pic.twitter.com/QQlgaZB7MN

Kalau nagini ternyata memang awalnya manusia, mungkin saja.....lalu anak perempuan di Cursed Child mungkin saja memang anaknya Voldy. bukan sama belatrix, tp sama Nagini. Hmmm. menarique.
sayangmu @zivawils
Aku harus buka the cursed lagi untuk pastinya umur anaknya Voldy berapa. apa mungkin karena ini nagini dimunculin, ya. biar relate juga sama buku cursed child, yaa.
