Eddie Redmayne’s mind was positively blown by J.K. Rowling’s “Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them” screenplay.

“For me, it was a question of whether I’d get the gig. When I read J.K. Rowling’s script, I just had my mind blown,” Redmayne, 34, told Pottermore. “I was so excited by it. The amazing thing was that I found it funny, I found it a thriller, I found it romantic. At the end, I was deeply moved by it.”

Redmayne was also impressed by “Fantastic Beasts” director David Yates. “David has such a lovely manner and this incredible kindness to him,” the actor said. “There was no question I wanted to do this movie.”

In the film, Redmayne plays writer and magizoologist Newt Scamander, who accidently unleashes a briefcase full of “fantastic beasts” upon 1920’s New York City.

“So when David and I had our first meeting about this movie I had this case with me,” Redmayne said. “We met in a pub in Soho and sat down by a roaring fire. As he started telling me about Newt and the basic plot of this film — which included Newt having a magic case — I said, ‘I promise I didn’t know about Newt’s case. I didn’t bring this as some sort of weird method audition — like, don’t worry David, I come with my own case!’ And I’m afraid it’s still here, it’s still got my life in it. Not quite as much as Newt has in his case, though…”

Redmayne has been nominated for an Academy Award for his role as transgender icon Lili Elbe in “The Danish Girl.” Already an Oscar winner for last year’s “The Theory of Everything,” Redmayne, this year, hopes for a more relaxing ceremony.

“Last year was like being hit by a bulldozer and it’s such a frenzy of emotions that you try to remain open enough to enjoy it and remember it,” he recently told The Telegraph. “You think of it as an evening event but it takes such a long time, I will have a calm day.”

“Fantastic Beasts” hits theaters Nov. 18.

Stars Eddie Redmayne, Katherine Waterston, Alison Sudol, and Dan Fogel — and director David Yates and producer David Heyman — discuss the return to the Wizarding World in a new featurette highlighting the upcoming Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them. The group also discusses the new take on the world made familiar in the Harry Potter novels and films, and working with creator and Fantastic Beasts screenwriter J.K. Rowling.

Eddie Redmayne stars as Scamander, and the film’s plot, set decades before the Harry Potter stories, has him visiting the Magical Congress of the United States of America. Things go awry when his creatures begin escaping from his magical briefcase. Katherine Waterston, Colin Farrell, and Ezra Miller also star.

Rowling wrote the script herself, the first time she’s handled screenplay duties. David Yates, who directed the final four Harry Potter movies, directs. And this is expected to be the first film in a new triology.

Actor Daniel Radcliffe says that’s he is jealous of the wonderful wizard outfit Eddie Redmayne got to wear in Harry Potter spin-off Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them, reported Female First.

Eddie is playing the role of Newt Scamander in the film and Daniel cannot believe he gets to wear such an impressive outfit when had to don a “zip top” as boy wizard Harry.

“Oh Eddie, in your brilliant costume. I got jeans and a zip top for 10 years and you’ve got a great coat already?” said Daniel, who portrayed the role of Harry Potter in all eight movies from 2001 to 2011. He also admitted that it would be odd for him to watch someone else take on the role in the upcoming London West End stage show Harry Potter and the Cursed Child.

The 26-year-old actor said: “It’s weird. But I’m happy for it to go on without me. I’ve no ownership of it.” When asked if he’ll go and watch the production, he added, “Now that I know (Harry’s in it) I actually really want to see it. It would be a mental thing to try and see it with lots of very excited Harry Potter fans. But I kind of would like to know what happens now.”

Dear Muggles, don’t worry. You’re not gone forever.

J.K. Rowling has surprised and teased her fans a lot this year with the upcoming spinoff Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them. The Harry Potter prequel, based on the fictional textbook in the film and book series, follows Eddie Redmayne as Newt Scamander, a magizoologist who collects said fantastic beasts and magical creatures in his magically expansive suit case. We don’t know a ton about the new movie, besides that it finds Newt in New York in the 1920s for unknown reasons as American wizards are kept in hiding. But it’s this whole wizarding-world-in-America thing that’s had fans freaking out.

First, Rowling revealed that, yes, there is an American version of Hogwarts. Fans, rightfully, lost it. But earlier this week, Entertainment Weekly’s Fantastic Beasts cover story revealed something way more profoundly shocking: muggles aren’t called muggles in America. Instead us silly Americans call them “no-maj” (pronounced “no madge” as in “no magic”). Fans unsurprisingly, refused to accept the change. But is the word “muggle” forever gone from all future iterations of the Potterverse? ScreenCrush got to the bottom of it.

During a special New York screening of Redmayne’s upcoming period piece The Danish Girl, in which he plays transgender pioneer Lili Elbe, the first person to undergo a successful gender confirmation surgery, I caught up with the actor. Fear not, Redmayne addressed this “no-maj” business – I will say, when pronounced by Redmayne in his British accent, the funky word does sound a bit more convincing. When asked about the fan reaction to the new word, the Oscar-winner assured that “muggle” will still be a word you hear in Fantastic Beasts:

Yeah, but they haven’t changed the word ‘muggle.’ This is the important thing, the word ‘muggle’ has not been changed, the word ‘muggle’ still exists. It’s just different nationalities. The word ‘muggle’ will definitely be in Fantastic Beasts, I can put it that way.

Redmayne, who had just arrived in New York to introduce The Danish Girl with director Tom Hooper, said he was hopping on a plane back to the Fantastic Beasts set in the U.K. the next morning. Despite the fact that Redmayne won the Oscar last year for his portrayal as Stephen Hawking in The Theory of Everything and may likely win again this year for Danish, he’s still amazed he’s starring in a Harry Potter prequel. “There was a whole period where every actor in the world in England was getting the opportunity to be in this film, particularly ones with red hair,” he said with a laugh. “It was a bit like, Wait a second, I don’t even get an audition? But then it was certainly worth the wait.”

Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them also stars Katherine Waterson, Alison Sudol, Dan Fogler, Colin Farrell, Ezra Miller and Samantha Morton and opens November 20, 2016. But before we get a taste of magic, Redmayne will star alongside Alicia Vikander in The Danish Girl, which opens November 27.

Eddie Redmayne is one fantastic-looking beast in his newest film role!
Entertainment Weekly has unveiled the first photos of the Oscar-winning actor in “Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them,” the anticipated “Harry Potter” prequel from franchise mastermind J.K. Rowling.
The “Theory of Everything” star portrays Newt Scamander, “world-famous magiozoologist” and textbook author whose work Harry Potter and his fellow budding wizards eventually study at Hogwarts.
Eddie dons dapper menswear for the mag’s cover image, released on Wednesday. His teal-colored peacoat and three-piece tweed suit complement the character and time period, but “Potter” fanatics will likely be more interested in learning more about the magic wand and “pivotal briefcase” he’s carrying, as well as the ornate, mysterious entryway behind him.
Set in 1920s New York City, the story gives fans their first peek at Rowling’s Wizarding World outside the UK, following Newt’s adventures at the Magical Congress of the United States of America (MACUSA). The art deco-inspired institution is reportedly the U.S. equivalent of Britain’s Ministry of Magic and hidden in plain sight in the Big Apple’s Woolworth building.

“Beasts” is the inaugural film in a planned spin-off trilogy, and also marks Rowling’s first outing as a screenwriter.
Co-starring Colin Farrell, Ezra Miller, Samantha Morton, Katherine Waterston and Jon Voight, and directed by “Harry Potter” veteran David Yates, “Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them” will hit theaters on Nov. 18, 2016.

The Pottermore site has debuted the official logo for Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them, next year’s Harry Potter spinoff from the pen of J.K. Rowling

Fantastic Beasts is set in 1920s New York and tells the story of Magizoologist Newt Scamander, played by Oscar-winning British actor Eddie Redmayne. Scamander is the writer behind the foremost textbook on the magical creatures of the wizarding world, (you’ve guessed it) Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them.

Fantastic Beasts and Where To Find Them is set for release on November 18, 2016 and sees Eddie Redmayne (The Danish Girl) starring alongside Colin Farrell (The Lobster), Katherine Waterston (Queen of Earth), Ezra Miller (The Flash), Dan Fogler (Barely Lethal), Samantha Morton (Control), Jon Voight (Midnight Cowboy), Carmen Ejogo (Selma), Ron Perlman (Sons of Anarchy) and Gemma Chan (Humans). David Yates, who helmed the final four Harry Potter films, returns to direct.

While excitement is still slightly muted for next year’s Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them, which will be J.K. Rowling’s return to cinemas for the first time since the conclusion of the multi-billion dollar “Harry Potter” saga in 2011, one expects that people will get more excited about it once footage starts emerging.

Directed by David Yates, who directed the last four “Harry Potter” movies, the spin-off prequel (of sorts) has been in production since August and still has a few more months of filming to go, but Oscar winner Eddie Redmayne is playing the film’s lead Newt Scamander, a “magizoologist” who travels to New York to look for magical creatures.

Earlier today, spoke to Redmayne for his upcoming film The Danish Girl, in which he plays Danish painter Einar Wegener who became the first person to undergo gender confirmation surgery as the inspirational Lili Elbe, and he spoke to us briefly about coming Fantastic Beasts.

Fantastic BeastsAs far as doing research, Redmayne was allowed an audience with Britain’s literary queen. “When I was prepping, I met J.K. Rowling and what’s so amazing is that her imagination is so full and thorough–it’s so encyclopedic of her world–we had an hour together and I sort of asked her about 800 questions so that was a lot of my wonderful research.”

“He’s wonderful,” Redmayne said glowingly about director David Yates, who directed the second half of the “Harry Potter” films. “Even though there’s a scale to these films that could be intimidating, he has such a kindness but an absolutely brilliant that it feels very intimate, and he’s got such a wonderful, eclectic cast. Hopefully, it will be good.”

Redmayne took a break from the movie to do the junket for The Danish Girl in London, but he’s back to Liverpool this week to presumably do some location shooting.

You can look for our full interview with Eddie as well as his director Tom Hopper before The Danish Girl is released by Focus Features on November 27.

Eddie Redmayne spoke about the “extraordinary” and educational experience of starring in The Danish Girl, but Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them is a high-stakes game. During the Toronto International Film Festival, the Oscar winner dished about the pressures of headlining the latest franchise installment.

“The stakes are high because they were so good before,” he told E! News of the previous Harry Potter films. “You don’t want to screw it up.”

Daniel Radcliffe, Emma Watson, and Rupert Grint became international sensations as the faces of the eight-film Harry Potter series. Redmayne succeeds them in this prequel story of Newt Scamander, a wizard and renowned magizoologist who travels around the world to document new fantastical creatures.

“It’s a complete privilege for me,” he continued. “I love J.K. Rowling. I love the Harry Potter films [and] books so for me this is just the most wondrous gift really.”

Redmayne is joined by Katherine Waterston as Tina, Alison Sudol as Tina’s sister Queenie, Dan Fogler as Jacob, Ezra Miller as Credence, Samantha Morton as Mary Lou, Jenn Murray as Chastity, Faith Wood-Blagrove as Modesty, and Colin Farrell as Graves. The film is written by Rowling herself and is directed by David Yates, who previously helmed Order of the Phoenix, Half-Blood Prince, and both parts of Deathly Hallows.

Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them began filming in August and is scheduled for release on Nov. 18, 2016.
