Newt Scamander as Introduced by J.K. Rowling and Eddie Redmayne!

Our wish has been granted, and we’ve finally got another look at the upcoming Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them film.

In the new video, titled “A New Hero,” J.K. Rowling gives us an insight into her love for Newt Scamander and why she wanted to write about his character after finishing the Potter series. Eddie Redmayne, who plays Newt, also delves into Newt’s character and talks about what drives him. Plus, we get to see interactions with Jacob and Tina – including hearing from the characters for the first time – as well as more of a look at the creatures and settings in the film.

Intriguingly, Jo says that Newt gets himself into something

that has implications for the whole wizarding world.

Check out the full featurette below!
