Lest there be any confusion, let it be said now that we are beyond giddy with anticipation for J.K. Rowling‘s Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them. The cinematic iteration of her book of the same name isn’t due out until November 18, 2016, but that doesn’t mean we can’t spend from now until then oogling every new glimmer of information we receive: and that goes doubly for this new featurette that debuted over the weekend in conjunction with the “Celebration of Harry Potter 2016” currently underway at Florida’s Wizarding World of Harry Potter.
In it, we not only get to see new footage of the film, but better looks at the characters portrayed by Colin Farrell (whoa, lookin’ almost Snape-y there, aren’tcha buddy?), Alison Sudol and Katherine Waterston (who play the Goldstein sisters, Queenie and “Tina” Porpentina, respectively), and Dan Fogler (the non-magical Jacob Kowalski). As it turns out, they’re all pretty charmed by the magic of the world (but I mean who wouldn’t be, amirite?).
The film focuses on the latter three characters alongside Eddie Redmayne‘s Newt Scamander, and the film promises “imagination to the extreme,” which is basically what every single Harry Potter fan has wanted to hear from minute one. Given the awe and wonderment felt by the actors involved, we can only imagine this one’s going to sweep us off our feet—and hopefully drop us directly into the graduate studies program at Ilvermorny, the American wizarding school that is now technically canon.
Are you looking forward to Fantastic Beasts? Let us know in the comments below.
