First Look At Eddie Redmayne In ‘Harry Potter’ Prequel
The first image from J.K. Rowling’s Harry Potter spinoff “Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them” is here. The film, set for release in November 2016, is a prequel based on Rowling’s 2001 catalog of magical creatures from the wizarding world.
In the film — which J.K. Rowling adapted from “Harry Potter” addendum of a book, and which is helmed by HP director David Yates — follows Redmayne as a certain “preeminent magi zoologist” named Newt Scamander to New York as part of his research on fantastic beasts. Waterston plays Porpentina Goldstein, who, if the book is any indication, is his love interest. Sudol plays her sister, Queenie, while Fogler is Jacob, a muggle who becomes Scamander’s friend.
Katherine Waterston and Alison Sudol star as witch sisters Tina and Queenie. Ezra Miller plays a wizard named Credence while Dan Fogler portrays a Muggle named Jacob. Colin Farrell is also in the cast, playing Graves.
