Get Your First Look At Eddie Redmayne In Fantastic Beasts And Where To Find Them

It’s finally here: we’ve been treated to our first look at Eddie Redmayne as magizoologist Newt Scamander, author of Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them—and star of the upcoming Harry Potter spin-off movie of the same name.

Redmayne appears on the cover of this week’s Entertainment Weekly in all of his wizardly finery, holding a wand in one hand and a suitcase in the other.

It looks like the scholarly wizard isn’t just a smarty when it comes to magical creatures: he’s also a snappy dresser. Redmayne stands on a stairway that looks like it might be a train station in the film’s 1926 setting, wearing a three-piece suit and bow tie. Ready for adventure? You bet.

Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them hits theatres November 18, 2016.
