Though principal photography has wrapped, work is still very much ongoing on the upcoming “Harry Potter” spin-off feature “Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them” at Warner Bros. Pictures. Empire has today posted a new photo of Eddie Redmayne as Newt Scamander in the 1926 America-set tale.
Speaking about the setup for the film, director David Yates tells the mag: “Newt is a magizoologist who’s just completed a global journey to find and document magical creatures for a book he plans on writing. His case is important because it contains some of the creatures he’s been researching. It may be small, but there’s a whole world within.”
Katherine Waterston, Alison Sudol, Ezra Miller, Dan Fogler, Colin Farrell, Jenn Murray, Jon Voight, Carmen Ejogo, Gemma Chan and newcomer Faith Wood-Blagrove also star in the film which opens in November next year.
