FIRST LOOK: Here’s Eddie Redmayne as Newt Scaramander in JK Rowling’s Fantastic Beasts And Where To Find Them

November 5th, 2015 by Marc Comments


Following the release of the Fantastic Beasts and Where To Find Them logo earlier this week, we now get our first good look at the movie itself, including star Eddie Redmayne as Newt Scaramander thanks to the latest issue of EW in the image above.

We have to say it really looks like it’s part of the Harry Potter movie universe we know so well and the sets and costumes look truly stunning.

This could be as good as the movie series that inspired it.

The additional images below come from the Facebook page of Philip DeFranco and show the above image without the text as well as images from inside the magazine itself. Enjoy.

Academy Award winner Eddie Redmayne (The Theory of Everything) stars as Newt Scamander, the wizarding world’s preeminent magizoologist, who stops in New York following his travels to find and document magical creatures.

Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them also stars Katherine Waterston (Inherent Vice) as Tina; Alison Sudol (“Dig,” “Transparent”) as Tina’s sister, Queenie; Tony Award winner Dan Fogler (“The 25th Annual Putnam County Spelling Bee”) as Jacob; Ezra Miller (Trainwreck) as Credence; two-time Oscar nominee Samantha Morton (In America, Sweet and Lowdown) as Mary Lou; Jenn Murray (Brooklyn) as Chastity; young newcomer Faith Wood-Blagrove as Modesty; and Colin Farrell (“True Detective ”) as Graves.

Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them for worldwide release in 3D and IMAX on November 18, 2016.

Marc is a self-confessed nerd. Ever since seeing Star Wars for the first time around 1979 he’s been an unapologetic fan of the Wars and still believes, with Clone Wars and now Underworld, we are yet to see the best Star Wars. He’s a dad of two who now doesn’t have the time (or money) to collect the amount of toys, comics, movies and books he once did, much to the relief of his long-suffering wife. In the real world he’s a graphic designer. He started Following the Nerd because he was tired of searching a million sites every day for all the best news that he loves and decided to create one place where you can go to get the whole lot. Secretly he longs to be sitting in the cockpit of his YT-1300 Corellian Transport ship with his co-pilot Chewie, roaming the universe, waiting for his next big adventure, but feels just at home watching cartoons with his kids….
