‘Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them’ Conjures Up a New Poster For Comic-Con
Not to be outdone by Wonder Woman and The LEGO Batman Movie, Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them has also gotten its own special poster for Comic-Con 2016 — what, you didn’t really think the first film in a new Harry Potter spinoff trilogy would appear in Hall H without debuting a new poster, did you? In any case, the new poster is definitely in the spirit of Comic-Con, and it looks like something you might actually want to display on your wall.
Ahead of tomorrow’s Hall H panel, WB debuted this exclusive Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them poster, which has a sort of graphic novel quality to it that’s quite appropriate, given the arena:
That color scheme is also evocative of the various posters released for Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows, which is likely no coincidence given that the two-part finale was helmed by Fantastic Beasts director David Yates.
Fantastic Beasts stars Eddie Redmayne, Katherine Waterston, Dan Fogler, Ezra Miller, Alison Sudol, Samantha Morton, Ron Perlman, Carmen Ejogo, Jon Voight and Colin Farrell, and is officially described as follows:
“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.
The new film marks the screenwriting debut of Harry Potter author J.K. Rowling, who has already reportedly completed work on the script for the sequel. We’ll probably see and hear a lot more about Fantastic Beasts and WB’s trilogy plans during tomorrow’s panel in Hall H.
Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them hits theaters on November 18.
