Watching J. K. Rowling Get Excited About Fantastic Beasts Wi

Eddie Redmayne#8217s Newt Scamander is a new kind of hero, according to Harry Potter author J.K. Rowling in a featurette about the forthcoming film, Fantastic Beasts and Where To Find Them.

The first two trailers for the film offered enticing glimpses of Scamander#8217s journey to America to scout out fantastic beasts to fill the pages of the Hogwarts textbook he is writing. But there was one notable problem with the trailersmdashno beasts. The new featurette takes care of that, showing eager fans a few of the new additions to the magical universe including a praying mantis-like plant creature and what appears to be a magical shrew.

The new featurette also finally lays out more about the film#8217s action thanks to commentary from Rowling. While Rowling is an accomplished author, Fantastic Beasts marks her screenwriting debut and it looks like she cooked up an incredible story, because of course she did. It appears that Scamander, a self-described magical zoologist, is making his way through America when he crosses paths with a Muggle#8230er, ldquoNo-Majrdquo and accidentally reveals the existence of magic to him, despite strict laws against doing that in America.

In the trailer, Redmayne says, ldquoNewt feels more at home with creatures than he does with human beings.rdquo So making his way through a society that he doesnrsquot fully understand is particularly challenging, but portraying Scamander as an outsider is exactly what Rowling had in mind. ldquoMy heroes are always people who feel themselves to be set apart, stigmatized or othered,rdquo said Rowling in the video. ldquoThatrsquos at the heart of most of what I write, and itrsquos certainly at the heart of this movie.rdquo

It#8217s hard to wait to find out more about this new character, but Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them doesnrsquot open until Nov. 18.
