Explore the big screen return to J.K. Rowling’s Wizarding World with 50 new Fantastic Beasts stills
With the big screen return to J.K. Rowling‘s Wizarding World just two weeks away, Warner Bros. Pictures has today brought online more than 50 new Fantastic Beast stills. You can check them all out in the gallery viewer below! Catch the film in theaters November 18.
Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them opens in 1926 as Newt Scamander has just completed a global excursion to find and document an extraordinary array of magical creatures. Arriving in New York for a brief stopover, he might have come and gone without incident…were it not for a No-Maj (American for Muggle) named Jacob, a misplaced magical case, and the escape of some of Newt’s fantastic beasts, which could spell trouble for both the wizarding and No-Maj worlds.
As you can see in the Fantastic Beasts stills below, the new film stars Eddie Redmayne, Katherine Waterston, Alison Sudol, Ezra Miller, Dan Fogler, Colin Farrell, Jenn Murray, Jon Voight, Carmen Ejogo, Gemma Chan and newcomer Faith Wood-Blagrove.
Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them is being produced by David Heyman, producer of all eight of the blockbuster Harry Potter features; J.K. Rowling; Steve Kloves, who scripted all but one of the Harry Potter films; and Lionel Wigram, who served as an executive producer on the last four installments of the franchise. Rowling herself is supplying the screenplay.
The Fantastic Beasts series is already planned to include an additional four installments. At this time, only Redmayne confirmed to return for Fantastic Beasts 2, but it’s a pretty safe bet that a few more of the first film’s cast will also appear in some capacity. It was also revealed recently that Johnny Depp will have role. David Yates will also return to direct.
