Hollywood star Eddie Redmayne is all set to dazzle us with a prequel of hit series Harry Potter, and the first look is finally out! Excitement was already on cloud nine since the first time everyone came to know about the existence of such a prequel which was penned by J.K. Rowling quite long ago. And when Oscar winner Eddie Redmayne was roped in to play the lead role of world-famous magizoologist Newt Scamander, the excitement level touched sky-high!
The first look sees Eddie in a playful dramatic pose with briefcase in his hand, and eyes and hair that will melt your heart. The actor looks dashingly handsome in his 1920s attire wearing a three piece suit with winter jacket on. The prequel to all the Harry Potter series has been titled ‘Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them’. Eddie’s first look from the movie is mysterious and full of an aura of secrecy, much like the screenplay written by Rowling which was kept hidden all this time.
Entertainment Weekly has given us a look inside the world of Harry Potter before he was ever born. The film will see Newt Scamander on his adventure in New York at the early 20th Century. Audiences will get to see an American wizard this time which has made U.S. Harry Potter fans all the more excited. With such an impressive backdrop and elegant attires seen from the revealed posters, we cannot wait to catch more updates and see the promo of the film.
Joining Eddie Redmayne in the cast are Katherine Waterston, Colin Farrell, Alison Sudol, Dan Fogler and Samantha Morton among others. Directed by David Yates, J.K. Rowling has herself co-produced the movie. The film has commenced shooting and is set to release after more than a year’s wait on November 18, 2016 in USA as well as UK.
