Eddie Redmayne Stars as Newt Scamander on 'Fantastic Beasts & Where to Find Them' EW Cover!

Eddie Redmayne keeps his wand handy on the brand new Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them cover of Entertainment Weekly, on newsstands August 12.

The 34-year-old Oscar winner opened up about playing magizoologist Newt Scamander, who “chases the mayhem-causing magical creatures that have escaped his briefcase and remain on the loose in 1926 New York.”

“There is a dark aspect to it,” Eddie said about the film. “I think it’s going to be surprising how moving it is.”

His co-star Colin Farrell added, “[J.K. Rowling] could take a place like New York, a city we’re all familiar with, and present it in a way that’s recognizable yet brand-new. She pulls back the corner of the picture and shows you another world behind the veil.”

Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them hits theaters on November 18.
