We couldn’t be more excited about upcoming Harry Potter prequel, Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them, and today we’ve had our first glimpse of the film.
Entertainment Weekly has released a picture of Eddie Redmayne in character as Newt Scamander, and he looks majestic to say the least:
Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them was originally a book published by Rowling in 2001. It takes the form of a ‘textbook’ that lists 85 different magical species from around the world.
While this might not seem like an interesting basis for a film, the cinematic version will see Scamander (who ‘wrote’ the textbook) go on an adventure in 1920s New York.
While ‘going on an adventure’ doesn’t give us a whole load to go on, we’re pretty sure that this will involve seeking out some magical creatures.
An official Instagram has also been set up for the film, where artwork, along with the caption ‘prepare yourself because the beasts are coming’ has recently been posted.
Starring Colin Farrell, Ezra Miller and Gemma Chan alongside Redmayne, Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them will hit our screens on the 18th November, 2016.
Not too long to wait then…
