Harry Potter Fans are already anticipating J.K. Rowling’s “Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them” as Warner Bros is bringing the book to life. They cannot wait to “revisit” Harry Potter’ Universe as the book will portray the magical creatures portrayed in the book series of Harry Potter.
Oscar Winner Eddie Redmayne will portray the main character Newt Scamander, the boy who will make an amazing discovery of the magical creatures ultimately leading to his penning the Hogwarts School Textbook. Other casts include Katherine Waterston as Tina Goldstein, and Dan Fogler as No-Maj Jacob Kowalski.
Harry Potter’s character will not be in the book as the setting of the story is set 70 years prior to him entering Hogwarts. Yet in this book one character from Harry Potter Series is returning.
Not only did Director David Yates confirm the return of young Dumbledore character in the sequel of the movie but according to J.K. Rowling Dumbledore’s character could be openly gay, “As far as his sexuality is concerned….watch his space”, the author stated. The author first talked about Dumbledore’s sexuality back in August of 2007.
Golden Globe Award and Screen Actors Guild Award for Best Actor Johnny Depp will also appear in the movie as the main villain Gellert Grindelwald. Fans are intrigued about Depp’s involvement in the movie.
“I didn’t approach him—although he was approached with my full blessing, because I thought he’d be amazing in the part. I can’t say much, because there are surprises in the movie, but I’m really happy with his performance,” the screenwriter teased via E! News. “And I think the fans will be, too.”
The Fantastic Beasts And Where to Find will soon hit theaters November 18. But in the meantime here’s a trailer of the upcoming movie.
