Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them is a cute, whimsical title, but it’s also kind of an unwieldy one. There’s a reason most people just shorten it to Fantastic Beasts in casual conversation. And as we move into the sequels, those titles have the potential to get even longer. Will we start seeing titles like Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them: Insert Dramatic But Vague Subtitle Here? Or will Warner Bros. just go with the classic number format, i.e., Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them 2? Or on the flip side, might the titles get shorter going forward?
Star Eddie Redmayne has the answer, and he shared it at a recent event promoting Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them. Find out the Fantastic Beasts sequel title format below. Read More »
This fall brings the Harry Potter franchise spin-off Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them to theaters. However, this spin-off won’t be following any of the iconic characters from the eight film franchise, and instead follows an expelled Hogwarts student named Newt Scamander (Eddie Redmayne) who heads to 1920s New York City with a magical briefcase full of creatures from the wizarding world.
So far much of what we’ve seen in the Fantastic Beasts trailers has showed off Scamander attempting to keep his briefcase of creatures a secret from the Muggle population (or No-Maj as they’re called in the US). But the most recent trailer introduced the plot element of the magical creatures expert having to track down a bunch of his escaped specimens. Now some new information reveals that Fantastic Beasts will also expand the wizarding world by introducing a new kind of witch with some very special abilities, and it makes us wonder if they might turn out to be one of the franchise’s villains.
