Entertainment Weekly Offers First Glimpse of Eddie Redmayne in Fantastic Beasts

The world of Harry Potter returns to theaters next year with the prequel titled Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them.

It’s based on JK Rowlings 2001 book of the same title which serves as a text book in Harry’s studies and is an extensive introduction to the magical beasts that exist in the magical, non-Muggle world.

Beasts stars Oscar winner Eddie Redmayne (The Theory of Everything) as world-famous magizoologist Newt Scamander, who embarks on an adventure in 1926 New York. In our cover image (see the full image below), you get a first look at Scamander, his pivotal briefcase in hand, standing inside the entrance of the majestic art deco-influenced Magical Congress of the United States of America (or MACUSA), which is the American version of the Ministry of Magic that’s housed inside the Woolworth Building in the film. Coming along for the ride are Katherine Waterston (Steve Jobs), Colin Farrell (True Detective) and Samantha Morton (Minority Report).
