Fantastic Beasts And Where To Find Them: Eddie Redmayne’s Character Is Revealed

Two years after J.K. Rowling announced she was adapting Fantastic Beasts And Where To Find Them into a screenplay, we’re finally getting our first look at Eddie Redmayne in character as the protagonist, Newt Scamander.

It’s been four months since the casting of the premiere zoologist of the wizarding world was announced, and we’ve been dying to see more ever since. Today, courtesy of Entertainment Weekly, we’re getting our first look at Redmayne in character.

Complete with glowing wand, professional briefcase and swishy coat, Newt Scamander is looking seriously stylish.
So what did the good people of Twitter think?

Aside from a couple of debbie-downers it looks like the response is overwhelmingly positive. We here at Voice of London definitely approve.

The film is expected to hit theatres late next year. Until then, there’s always binge watching the entire Harry Potter series to tide you over. That’s a full 19 and a half hours plus of magic. Tons more if you go for the books too (and really, why wouldn’t you?)
