First Fantastic Beasts Photo – Eddie Redmayne in the Harry Potter Prequel

Harry Potter and J.K. Rowling fans brace yourselves!

Looks like 2016 is going to be a huge one for the fans of the wizarding world.

Scheduled to start next summer is the Harry Potter play, The Cursed Child and towards the end of the year we might get to enjoy another motion picture related to the same world.

Today, the first film related photo has been released. Presented in it is Eddie Redmayne, who looks quite ready to enter J.K. Rowling’s wizarding world as part of the Harry Potter prequel, Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them. The actor is starring as magizoologist Newt Scamander, who wrote the textbook used by Harry and his pals in the hugely popular novels.


Most of the details and the plot are still kept secret, but Colin Farrell, Katherine Waterston and Samantha Morton are all joining Redmayne in the cast.

Shooting is already underway but fans can expect to wait a little while yet for the first trailer. In the meantime, the film’s official logo has been released the other day on the film’s official Twitter page.

All left to do now is to patiently wait for next year.

Yes, yes, I know, easier said than done…
