Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them doesn’t hit theaters until November 18, 2016, but that doesn’t mean we won’t savor any and every single bit of information we can get until then. Which is exactly why we’re so happy to have our Harry Potter-related feels assuaged by the film’s new logo title treatment, released today. And if you’re thinking it looks a li’l familiar, well: you’re right!
Feel free to click this to make it do the full-size business:
Looks like—barring the more dragon-y details but we’ll get back to that later—this one’s taking quite the page out of the Harry Potter playbook. For referential comparison:
Back are the jagged, metallic lines of the old logos, but with a slightly more balanced heft. But we’re really loving the details and filigree, which looks loosely like fur, teeth, claw marks, and a full-on dragon in that first Beasts ‘s’. The shiny, high-gloss finish also hints at a more put-together protagonist—probably because he’s not a child and is well into his career as a magizoologist in New York.
Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them will hit theaters in roughly a year, and stars Eddie Redmayne, Ron Perlman, Jon Voight, Ezra Miller, Colin Farrell, Katherine Waterston, and more.
And if you want to hear some fun rumors about Harry’s familial involvement in the series, watch this!
