Magizooloigst Newt Scamander is the character we’ll be following in the Harry Potter prequel, Fantastic Beasts And Where to Find Them. The movie stars Eddie Redmayne (he’s so hot right now) as Newt, a 1920s American wizard who is cataloging all the wonderous and magical creatures of the Harry Potter wizarding world. The book he writes will be a text the kids at Hogwarts study…probably with an annual update to ensure the pupils have to buy a new one each year from Flourish and Blotts.
Newton’s book would become very famous…likely due to the fact that it’s rival text, the Monster Book of Monsters, attacked it readers. It should be exciting to see the adventures of a young Newt compiling his renowned work in a 1926 fantastical world full of bowtruckles and flobberworms!
Movie comes out November, 2016.
