You should not miss this first set of photos if you are a die-hard Harry Potter fan.
Fans of the witch and wizard fantasy Harry Potter by J.K. Rowling will surely be delighted to see that the prequel to the series; Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them has begun its production and a new set of photos where unveiled by Entertainment Weekly. The movie takes place 70 years in New York before the events in the Harry Potter story.
Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them is based on the Hogwarts book that bears the same title, where it focus on the adventures of the author by the name Newt Scamander (who will be played by Eddie Redmayne from Les Miserables and Juipter Ascending) who is a magizoologist or someone who studies magical and mythical creatures. The film will also feature Katherine Waterston (who will play as Porpentina ?Tina? Goldstein), Alison Sudol (Queenie Goldstein) and Dan Fogler (Jacob Kowalski), it will also star Colin Farrell, Samantha Morton and Ezra Miller, though no details on their potential role in the film. It was also reported that J.K. Rowling will be penning the adaptation, making this her first screenplay work, and this will also be directed by David Yates, who also directed the last four Harry Potter films.
Rumors for the plot of Fantastic Beasts will involve featuring the American Wizarding School, which is similar that from Hogwarts and it will also feature the American version of the Ministry of Magic called Magical Congress of the United States of America (or MACUSA). Although Warner Bros. initially wanted a documentary of the author, good thing J.K. Rowling stepped in and changed the story.
What we?ll see basically is Newt Scamander?s amazing creatures (which he keeps inside a leather bag) gets loose, and creates mayhem in the muggle world.
No other details were reveal yet and don?t expect to see some characters to appear in the movie as the Fantastic Beast movie happened 70 years before the events of Harry Potter, though we might expect to see some reference of famous old wizards from the Harry Potter films.
Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them will premiere on November 18, 2016.
