Harry Potter fans rejoice! You can finally see the first glimpse of Eddie Redmayne as his new character Newt Scamander.
Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them is the hotly anticipated prequel to Harry Potter and it’s based on J.K. Rowling’s 2001 encyclopedia beastanica. It will be Rowling’s first screenplay, and it stars Oscar winner Redmayne as a “magizoologist” who in 1926 travels to New York to visit the Magical Congress of the United States of America.
The film will hit the screens in 2016 and fans will be glad to know it’s a trilogy!
