“Fantastic Beasts” Cover of “Entertainment Weekly” Revealed!

Yesterday, we were excited to report that the official title design for Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them had been unveiled and the film’s official social media outlets established. Entertainment Weekly provided us with more insight into the design process.

They also managed to let slip a bit of information that magically disappeared from their article:

Fantastic Beasts is our next cover story with an exclusive first look at the new film and all sorts of scoop that we don’t want to spoil just yet. We’re going to reveal the cover on Good Morning America on Wednesday morning, plus right here on EW.com.

While the article was revised to say only that the title design was “but the barest tease of what EW has in store for Potterverse fans,” the Fantastic Beasts cover was, indeed, revealed on Good Morning America this morning!

The cover, as shown on Entertainment Weekly‘s website, depicts Eddie Redmayne in character as Newt Scamander, standing in front of what Entertainment Weekly has revealed is the Magical Congress of the United States of America (or MACUSA), which is the US equivalent of the Ministry of Magic! The photo in the article itself, as briefly glimpsed on Good Morning America and shown in a screenshot below, shows Scamander (Redmayne), his wife Tina (Katherine Waterston), her sister Queenie (Alison Sudol), and Jacob (Dan Fogler).

Take a look below:

The Fantastic Beasts cover will be available starting this Friday – we can’t wait to see what else is revealed!

    • Wha.. oh, Mac USA…. no, the Magical Congress pulled some strings to get a computer-whatsits named after them.

    Oh GOD… the first thing that jumped at me from the cover was: Why didn’t anybody think that the US Magic School could be in New York? It would be a fantastic idea. But then I read the full article and he’s standing in front of MACUSA building. Still, I would love to see a magic school in New York.
