Like the rest of the world, Luna Lovegood “can’t wait” for the new Harry Potter film, Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them, to be released in November.

Starring Eddie Redmayne as Newt Scamander, the Harry Potter prequel is set in the Wizarding World of New York in 1926.

“I am so excited,” Lynch, 24, tells PEOPLE. “Those are my two favorite things: animals and Harry Potter.” And the actress is showing her support for animals this Sunday in the New York City Half Marathon, running to raise awareness for World Animal Protection.

But as for Fantastic Beasts?

“Eddie Redmayne is going to be fantastic! He’s definitely a wizard.” Though adds, “I do get a little bit jealous when I think of them filming right now. I miss it!”

Well, as it turns out, Luna married Newt Scamander’s grandson, Rolf. So why not a flash forward to a scene with Luna?

“I’m just waiting for the call!” laughs the actress. Adding that, “Fans have been concocting all these scenarios where Luna narrates the film. As if telling it to her children or grandchildren.

“They didn’t go that direction,” she adds.
