First On Set Photos Of ‘Harry Potter’ Spinoff ‘Fantastic Beast And Where To Find Them’
An on-set photo of Harry Potter spinoff, Fantastic Beasts And Where To Find Them, has surfaced online.
The image features three extras shielding their 20’s-era costumes from the rain with heavy black parkas and while it offers little in the way of magic it’s solid evidence that the film is in fact real and J.K. Rowing hasn’t been playing a terrible prank on her adoring fans.
So far we’ve had no glimpse of stars Eddie Redmayne or Colin Farrell but as filming continues around St. George’s Hall in Liverpool for the next week there’s still hope we might get a peak at them in character.
Redmayne leads the cast as Newt Scamander, a magizoologist (or wizard vet to the uninitiated) who travels the globe in search of magical creatures both fantastical and fierce. Redmayne is supported by a host of acting talent including Ezra Miller, Samantha Morton, Katherine Waterston and Jon Voight, as well as Farrell.
The film is an adaption of the similarly titled book and the screenplay was written by Rowling herself. The film is due to be released on November 18, 2016 and will be the first in a planned trilogy.
Expect more coverage of the movie’s progress as it comes.
