Fantastic Beasts And Where To Find Them Eddie Redmayne first look

See Eddie Redmayne as Newt Scamander with EW’s cover

The first look at Eddie Redmayne in character as Newt Scamander in Fantastic Beasts And Where To Find Them has arrived, thanks to EW.

In fact, it’s our first look at anything from the film based on JK Rowling’s 2001 book, which is directed by Harry Potter veteran David Yates and written by none other than Rowling herself.

Here Redmayne is, “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.”

Redmayne stars alongside Colin Farrell, Katherine Waterston, Samantha Morton, Ron Perlman, Ezra Miller, Gemma Chan, Carmen Ejogo and Dan Fogler.

There’s also a new logo (via IGN).


Fantastic Beasts And Where To Find Them will be released in cinemas on 18 November 2016. You can download Harry Potter: The Complete Manual from now.
