Our first look at Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them, the upcoming Harry Potter prequel, is here! Eddie Redmayne is looking suave in a blue jacket as “magizoologist” (expert on the subject of magical creatures) Newt Scamander on the cover of Entertainment Weekly, which boasts that the upcoming film is “required reading: even for muggles.” The project was created by Harry Potter author J.K. Rowling, who wrote the script for the project herself. The story takes place in 1926 New York and follows Scamander as he visits America for a work-related trip – J.K. Rowling has teased that his visit to the city was only supposed to be a short one but was extended due to the adventure he takes in this story. The cover features his pivotal briefcase in hand, standing inside the entrance of the majestic art deco-influenced Magical Congress of the United States of America (or MACUSA), which is the American version of the Ministry of Magic that’s housed inside the Woolworth Building in the film. The movie also stars Katherine Waterston (Steve Jobs), Colin Farrell (True Detective) and Samantha Morton (Minority Report).
