Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them ︎◆ Movies and Plays

“Fantastic Beasts” is the cover of Entertainment Weekly; check-out new images and content!

Entertainment Weekly once more has the magizoologist Newt Scamander (Eddie Redmayne) as the magazine cover to promote the return to the Wizarding World to the theathers with “Fantastic Beasts and Where To Find Them”. Besides exclusive informations about new creatures, characters and misteries, the edition that goes out this friday, 12, promises also J.K. Rowling’s reaction to watching the movie for the first time and more.

On the cover, you can see Newt Scamander and his magic suitcase superimposed by 1926 New York and the MACUSA logo alongiside a few beasts – a Niffler, a Thunderbird and a Occami:

“There’s all kinds of things going on in our world right now concerning immigration and tensions between different groups. There’s a lot about segregation in this film, a lot about fear of the ‘other.’ These creatures, who the world sees as ugly, dangerous or weird, Newt has such love for them, and through his love we fall in love with them. J.K. Rowling has tapped into really deep and pertinent issues”, says Alison Sudol.

As a preview, the magazine’s online portal revealed a few unpublished images of the movie:


The protagonista quartet runs through the city: Jacob Kowalski (Dan Fogler), Tina Goldstein (Katherine Waterston), Queenie Goldstein (Alison Sudol) e Newt Scamander (Eddie Redmayne).


Percival Graves (Colin Farrell), MACUSA’s Director of Securiry, interrogates Newt. On the background, Tina observes.


On an alley full of posters of the group Second Salem, you have the first peak at Credence (Ezra Miller), adoptive son of leader Mary Lou, besides Graves.


Backstage, Redmayne and Waterston talk with director David Yates. Behind them, a destroyed subway tunnel.

Within today we’ll have access to the full interview and we’ll post it as soon as possible. Stay tuned to Potterish!

“Fantastic Beasts and Where To Find Them” is the debut of J.K. Rowling as a screenwriter. Directed by David Yates and produced by David Heyman, the movie arrives November 18th on theathers worldwide.
