Casting Rumours & Characters

According to The Wrap & Hypable, the other four Fantastic Beasts lead characters (and possible actors) are:

-Tina: Described as “grounded.” Testing for this role are Saoirse Ronan (pictured above center), Dakota Fanning (above right), Allison Sudol, and Lili Simmons.

– Queenie: Tina’s older sister and described as a “bombshell.” Testing for this role are Kate Upton (above left), Katherine Waterston and Elizabeth Debicki

– Jacob: Described as Newt’s “rival,” testing for this role are Steve Zisis, Zack Pearlman and Dan Fogler.

 This is in addition to the previous rumour of Eddie Redmayne being offered the role of Newt Scamander:

Though it’s unclear whether all of those actresses are available or even wish to pursue the project, several of them already have test deals in place, and Redmayne is expected to read alongside them during those tests, which are slated to take place over the next week.

Hopefully we'll have more news and confirmation on this soon - as for now, please treat this as unconfirmed!

David Heyman Talks Fantastic Beasts

Thanks to Collider, we have a new short interview with Fantastic Beasts producer David Heyman about the first in the movie series: 

Collider: Obviously, it’s very difficult to successfully adapt any book series, and you did that, above and beyond, with the Harry Potter films. What does it mean to you to have had a hand in that, and what are the biggest concerns for you, in continuing that legacy with Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them?

DAVID HEYMAN: What does it mean? I don’t know. It’s just about doing the best you can, telling stories in a way that is making good films with characters that people of any age can relate to and that move an audience. It’s really exciting to be embarking upon Fantastic Beasts. I can’t wait. Jo has got such an incredible imagination, and it’s lovely to be in the wizarding world again.

How far along are you in the development process for Fantastic Beasts, and do you know when you’ll start shooting?

HEYMAN: Jo is writing, and we don’t yet have a start date. We’re in the very early stages of pre-production and development.

There’s been talk about certain actors possibly getting involved. How excited are you to possibly have Eddie Redmayne as the star, and how soon do you think you’ll announce your lead actor?

HEYMAN: There are a few big parts. We’re early on in our casting process. There are some really exciting possibilities for the parts, but we’re still very early on in the journey.

We hope to hear more about casting and definite character roles soon!

Fantastic Beasts To Be Shown In IMAX

According to PR Newswire, Fantastic Beasts is set to be released in IMAX in a massive deal with Warner Bros.


IMAX Corporation and Warner Bros. Pictures today announced a multi-picture agreement to release up to 30 films from the studio's slate through 2020 as a continuation of the companies' longstanding partnership.

Under the agreement, IMAX will be part of a number of high-profile tentpoles from Warner Bros. Pictures, including ....... Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them.

The IMAX release of each film will be digitally re-mastered into the image and sound quality of The IMAX Experience® with proprietary IMAX DMR® (Digital Re-mastering) technology. The crystal-clear images, coupled with IMAX's customized theater geometry and powerful digital audio, create a unique environment that will make audiences feel as if they are in the movie.


As this partnership is inclusive up to 2020, it is likely that all three Fantastic Beasts films will be included under the IMAX deal.

MinaLima Begin Work On Fantastic Beasts

MinaLima, the designer duo behind the Harry Potter movies, spoke to SnitchSeeker at the Harry Potter Exhibition in Paris yesterday about their upcoming work on Fantastic Beasts:


Well… maybe, we can just say that we’ve just started. We did design the cover in 2000 for the film innocently not knowing what was going to happen. Yes we are working on the film but we can’t say anything but we 're really excited.

 Now that work has finally started on the first Fantastic Beasts movie, we hope to hear more and more updates soon!

Don't forget, the first release date is set for November 18th 2016.

David Heyman Interview

Thanks to Yahoo! Movies we have another interview snippet with David Heyman, producer of Fantastic Beasts, about the first movie:


“We’re at early stages , but we’re beginning the process,” Heyman explained.

“I don’t really want to talk about it right now to be honest with you, but it’s very exciting. Jo has written something very special.”

‘Fantastic Beasts’ is scheduled for release in November 2016 and will shoot at Warner Bros. Leavesden Studio, presumably later this year, so we’re expecting casting announcements in the coming months. 

Heyman was reticent to share whether they’d be holding open auditions for the lead roles like they did for ‘Harry Potter and the Philosopher’s Stone’, saying it was “too early to say” how the casting process would work.

Fantastic Beasts To Be "adjacent" To Harry Potter

Thanks to SnitchSeeker, who attended the VIP Hogwarts Express Launch at 'Warner Bros Studio Tour: The Making of Harry Potter' last night, we have a new snippet of information about the first Fantastic Beasts movie. This comes from Kevin Tsujihara, CEO of Warner Bros: 


" is really a wonderful gift ‎from to the fans, and we are a part of it. It is like Star Wars. It is not exactly a linear story but an adjacent story," he told The Hollywood Reporter. "And Jo wrote herself, which is just absolutely amazing, and she is so talented. You see the passion that everyone has for the world that she has created, and it's just fantastic to extend it."

Tsujihara also paid tribute to Rowling: "Jo couldn't be here tonight, but she's here in spirit." He added: "This place embodies the world of Harry Potter and brings it to life."

When asked what else may be next for Leavesden, said Tsujihara: "Right now, we are focused on Fantastic Beasts. And Jo has a storyline in her head, and right now, we are letting her go ."


Filming on the first movie is set to begin late this summer!

Hogwarts Express Launch

Last night we attended the Hogwarts Express preview event at WB Studio Tour and we can tell you now, we were not dissappointed! 

Just beyond the Dark Arts section a new corridor has been opened up which takes you straight along to King's Cross station....magic! It really is easy to forget where you are whilst inside the new expansion as the enitre thing is a replica of Platform 9 3/4. Along with being able to see the actual Hogwarts Express, you are able to climb aboard one of the carriages and walk along the length of it. Inside this carriage are six seating areas set up with props from train scenes in the first six movies. Once you get off at the other end, you can walk straight across to a section of carriage seats with green screen windows  - here, you can sit down and watch the Muggle world go by, just like Harry and Ron did in Philosopher's Stone.

Other parts to this new expansion include a brand new Platform 9 3/4 shop to buy your goodies before boarding the train to Hogwarts & an extra section of the train hidden away behind a wall which has the rather magnificent Hogwarts Express sweet trolley on display.

This expansion to the Tour is one that we cannot rate highly enough. When you step onto that Platform, you will never, ever want to leave. 

Don't just take our word for it, though, take a look at our photos:


You can buy tickets by clicking here, and this is not just an event - this is a permanent addition to the tour.
