Fantastic Beasts and Where To Find Them is actually happening! This last week, new facts were released, alongside an official logo and the first movie stills. Are you as excited as I am? 

Eddie Redmayne will bring Newt Scamandar to life on the big screen. Other members of the cast include Katherine Waterston, Alison Sudol, Colin Farrell and Dan Fogler.

Thanks to Pottermore , we now know that the story is set in the 1920’s. Newt, a Magizoologist, keeps the beasts he studies in an enchanted suitcase. Mayhem ensues when the beasts escape, much to the contempt of the American wizarding authorities. The American wizarding community has strived to keep magic from the No-Maj’s (muggles) after all. As a result of the escape, Newt will come into contact with an auror, Graves.

However, the story won’t just revolve around Newt. It will also be about other characters, such as aspiring baker Jacob – who isn’t a wizard -, and the sisters Tina and Queenie Goldstein.

Take a look at the first move stills!


The cast looks really promising and I love the 1920’s setting. What do you think of the movie info and stills that have been released so far? Tell me in a comment!
