According to early reviews, Eddie Redmayne’s portrayal of Newt Scamander in “Fantastic Beasts and Where To Find Them” was heavily lauded by critics.
When asked about sequels’ titles, Redmayne revealed that the title format of the film’s 4 upcoming sequels will continue the “Harry Potter” tradition, using “and the” to bridge the gap between “Fantastic Beasts” and the movie’s main subject. This means, we would get an idea of the sequel’s plot once J.K. Rowling announces the title.
The actor said, “I did actually ask that question to David Yates and David Heyman yesterday, and the answer is: Fantastic Beasts will remain in the title if we go forward, and then it will be ‘and the…’”
Based on J.K. Rowling’s original script, “Fantastic Beasts and Where To Find Them” is set in New York City during the 1920s, which is about 70 years before the events of “Harry Potter”. The story follows the adventures of a distinguished Magiczoologist known as Newt Scamander and it also features new characters, the wizarding community in the US, and of course, fantastic beasts.
