While his excursion to London’s Theatreland has Harry Potter (and his Cursed Child) very busy at the moment, the world of Potter is about to expand on the cinema screen.
David Yates and J. K. Rowling are bringing us the tale of Newt Scamander, a Magizoologist employed by the Ministry of Magic following his expulsion from Hogwarts. Famed in Potter lore for his book Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them, fans of Rowling’s world are eager to see his story on the big screen.
Today Warner Bros. have released a featurette for the film, with contributions from Rowling herself, on the kind of hero Scamander, played by the ever-brilliant Eddie Redmayne, actually is.
Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them also stars Katherine Waterston, Dan Fogler, Alison Sudol, Ezra Miller, Samantha Morton, Jon Voight, Ron Perlman, Carmen Ejogo, Jenn Murray, Faith Wood-Blagrove, and Colin Farrell, and it’s currently set to be released worldwide on November 18, 2016 and looks phenomenal.
