Potterheads are Freaking Out over Newt Scamander!

Entertainment Weekly revealed a first look of Eddie Redmayne as Newt Scamander in Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them. And naturally, the fandom has had a thing or two to say about it!

At first, people were a little flustered.

Then came the excitement!

Before long, people began noticing a striking resemblance to certain other fictional characters.

Scamander’s costume may also be inspiring a few.

But wait, is that a scarf upon your neck, Mr. Scamander?

But then came a harsh reality.

Yup, we have to wait a whole year for the film’s release. As you recover from this realization, spare a thought for the other characters also revealed today.
