Here's Your First Look At The 'Harry Potter' Prequel 'Fantastic Beasts And Where To Find Them'

Accio prequel!

Eat your heart out, Harry Potter. 

The film version of J.K. Rowling's "Harry Potter" prequel, "Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them," has been shrouded in secrecy ever since the project was announced in 2013. That is, until now. 

Entertainment Weekly's newest cover star is Newt Scamander, the movie's protagonist and world renowned magizoologist (a person who studies magical creatures) played by Oscar-winner Eddie Redmayne, who sets out on an adventure in 1926 New York. 

Things to note: Redmayne is sporting Scamander's signature briefcase and standing in the hallowed halls of the Magical Congress of the United States of America (or MACUSA), the magical governing body for the American witches and wizards. 

Colin Farrell, Samantha Morton, Ezra Miller and Katherine Waterston are also set to join Redmayne on the magical adventure. 

The official title design for "Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them" was released on Tuesday on the film's Instagram account with a mysterious caption that reads, "Prepare yourself for the beasts are coming."
