“Fantastic Beasts” Roundup: The One with 100 Days to Go!
Another month over and another month closer to the release of Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them in November. Just this week, we were excited to learn that there were only 100 days to go until the film was released in theaters, helpfully reminded by Eddie Redmayne, Newt Scamander himself.

Meanwhile, Colleen Atwood, costume designer for Fantastic Beasts, spoke about working with Eddie Redmayne.
He’s very physical, Eddie, in how he creates the body and the movement for his clothes. It was really important to him that his stuff had a shape and a movement and it went with what he was doing.
She also reflected on how she went about preparing to take on the Fantastic Beasts wardrobes.
I saw the Harry Potter films, but I didn’t go back and revisit them. I didn’t really want to do that, and I didn’t really need to because it’s the world, but it’s 1926. It’s a really fresh take on it.
Last month saw San Diego Comic-Con take place, and the Fantastic Beasts cast was there to promote the film. While there, the cast took part in several interviews and promotions for the film. You can check out some highlights here. MTV recently released some interviews with the cast, where they talk about their amazement at the reaction to the new footage. Check them out below.
