The new spin-off of Harry Potter will be released on 18th November 2016, based J.K Rowling’s book Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them. The star role – Newt Scamander – is played by the Oscar-winning Eddie Redmayne.

bookThe book is based on the worldwide known series Harry Potter, and it is about the magical beasts of the wizarding world. This book is meant to seem as though it has been the property of Harry Potter and is a fact file about each beast and wizarding recounts.

Who better than Eddie Redmayne to play the ‘author’ of the book who is a ‘magizooologist’? Eddie has played many roles in film such as Jupiter Ascending and the famous Theory of Everything, playing the genius Stephan Hawking.

The director of this film, David Yates, said, “I couldn’t be more excited about the prospect of working with Eddie, he is a fearless actor, brimming with invention, wit and humanity.”

This spin-off film is released two days before the 15th anniversary of the first Harry Potter book, The Philosophers Stone (Sorcerer’s Stone).

It’ll be interesting to see how this wizarding textbook is going to be turned into a film, but with J.K Rowling writing the script Harry Potter fans are reassured that the much-anticipated film will be a hit.
