Fans of the Harry Potter series are going to have an excellent 2016. With both a sequel and a prequel story in the works, those who travel to London will get to see the staged version of Harry Potter and the Cursed Child, and we will all get to enjoy the Eddie Redmayne-led Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them from the comfort of our own local cinematheque! Production on the film has begun, and now Entertainment Weekly has first looks at the characters, plot details, and photos from set that will get any Potter fan more than excited for the upcoming flick. We’ve known Newt Scamander would be traveling to America, but now we have a better idea of what life in the Western Hemisphere will be like for the future professor and his wizarding friends.
