Stream the Entire “Fantastic Beasts” Soundtrack for Free!
Well, hold onto your wands, witches and wizards, Muggles and No-Majs alike, because WaterTower Music (Warner Bros.’s in-house label) released an 18-track YouTube playlist where you can listen to the full soundtrack of Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them for free, ahead of the November 18 premiere!

The soundtrack is written by James Newton Howard, whose other works include the soundtracks for Snow White and the Huntsman, The Huntsman: Winter’s War, The Hunger Games franchise, Maleficent, and many more.
You can currently only listen to the full soundtrack on WaterTower Music’s official website, but you can buy the songs “Main Titles” and “Tina Takes Newt In/Macusa Headquarters” on iTunes, as well as stream them on Spotify.
“Main Titles” starts with the melody from “Hedwig’s Theme” and contains hints of melodies from the Potter movies throughout the song, which will surely make any Potter fan nostalgic!
“Tina Takes Newt In/Macusa Headquarters” starts off with the magical swirls from the string section that we know and love, before it takes on a 1920s jazz feel about halfway through the song, returning to ominous tones reminiscent of the later Potter films.
The end of the stream hints that two new exclusive bonus tracks will be available tomorrow – all the more reason to have the stream on an endless loop for the next few weeks!
It sounds like a perfect soundtrack for a Fantastic Beasts premiere party!
You can find the stream here.
