If you’re eager to keep up with the Harry Potter spinoff Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them in an official capacity (as opposed to trade reports), an official Twitter page has launched for the upcoming film, and today it revealed the movie’s logo.
Unsurprisingly, the logo doesn’t contain anything we don’t already know about the story, which is next to nothing. All we know is that it takes place 70 years before the events of Harry Potter and follows Newt Scamander (Eddie Redmayne) “the wizarding world’s preeminent magizoologist, who stops in New York following his travels to find and document magical creatures.” The only other noteworthy thing about this logo is that it says “From J.K. Rowling’s Wizarding World” rather than name-drop Harry Potter, which is fine. Rowling and Harry Potter are synonymous, but it does help delineate that this new movie is not connected to Harry’s story in any significant way.
Check out the full Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them logo below. The film opens November 18, 2016, and also stars Katherine Waterston as Tina, Alison Sudol (Dig) as Tina’s sister Queenie, Dan Fogler (Fanboys) as Jacob, a muggle, Ezra Miller (Trainwreck) as Credence, Jenn Murray (Brooklyn) as Chastity, Faith Wood-Blagrove as Modesty, Samantha Morton as Mary Lou, and Colin Farrell as Graves. David Yates (Harry Potter Films 5 – 7) will direct a script from Rowling.
