‘Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them’ Summons Another New Photo
You have approximately 11 more months of websites like ours using cute headlines that play on the title of Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them, as in “Fantastic Beasts Finds a New Trailer” or “Where to Find a Fantastic Photo of Eddie Redmayne in Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them.” Answer: right here. Also: sorry in advance for all the silly headlines.
Empire debuted a new photo from Fantastic Beasts, featuring Eddie Redmayne in character as magizoologist Newt Scamander — and to be honest, Redmayne just looks like someone named Newt Scamander.
The image doesn’t show much, though it appears that our new pal Newt is late for a very important date, and he’s drawing a sizable crowd. We’ve seen quite a bit of Redmayne and his human co-stars via images and trailers, though not so much of the fantastic beasts suggested in the film’s title…yet.
Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them opens in 1926 as Newt Scamander has just completed a global excursion to find and document an extraordinary array of magical creatures. Arriving in New York for a brief stopover, he might have come and gone without incident…were it not for a No-Maj (American for Muggle) named Jacob, a misplaced magical case, and the escape of some of Newt’s fantastic beasts, which could spell trouble for both the wizarding and No-Maj worlds.
Redmayne co-stars with Katherine Waterston, Alison Sudol, Ezra Miller, Colin Farrell, Dan Fogler and Jon Voight in the film, which is directed by Harry Potter franchise vet David Yates and marks the screenwriting debut of author J.K. Rowling.
Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them hits theaters on November 18, 2016.
