Poster: Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them

Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them posterA new poster has just been released for Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them, the upcoming film in the Harry Potter universe.

According to a report by Entertainment Weekly, the official Twitter of the film released the poster. It features the protagonist, magizoologist Newt Scamander (played by Eddie Redmayne), gazing at the New York skyline with his wand and briefcase filled with fantastic and dangerous magical creatures.

As previously reported, Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them is the first in a planned trilogy of films. It is set in New York, 1926, and will follow the adventures of magizoologist Newt Scamander who arrives in the city with his case of magical creatures, which accidentally get unleashed and cause all kinds of chaos. The film will also tackle more mature themes such as the conflicts between magical and non-magical communities in America.

More details about the plot and setting of the films were reported earlier, including information about the wizard-phobic society of 1920s New York. Also, Muggles are apparently referred to as No-Maj in the American magical world and they are threatened by wizards and witches. Scamander will have to make his way through a darker world with threats even more dangerous than his briefcase of magical beasts.

Joining Redmayne in the cast of Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them are Katherine Waterston as Porpentina Goldstein, Alison Sudol as Queenie Goldstein, Dan Fogler as Jacob Kowalski, Colin Farrell as Graves, Samatha Morton as Mary Lou, and Ezra Miller as Credence.

The film will be directed by Harry Potter veteran David Yates and the screenplay was written by J.K. Rowling herself. Fans don’t have too long to wait before they can re-enter the magical world and discover new and exciting adventures, since the movie comes out after a few more months.

Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them will hit theaters on November 18, 2016.
