Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them: First plot details about Harry Potter prequel emerge.

You know there are going to be beasts — it’s right there in the title! The forthcoming “Harry Potter” prequel “Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them” doesn’t come out until next year, but it is already receiving criticism for the lack of diversity among the principal cast (lead actors Eddie Redmayne, Colin Farrell, Katherine Waterston, Alison Sudol and Ron Perlman are all white).”Eccentric magizoologist Newt Scamander (Oscar winner Eddie Redmayne) comes to New York (for a reason we won’t disclose) with his trusty weathered case.The eagerly-awaited spinoff of the “Harry Potter” series that’s set 70 years before the Boy Who Lived lived, revolves around “Magizooligist” Newt Scamander, played by Oscar-winner Eddie Redmayne.

This case is one of those way-way-way-bigger-on-the-inside magical devices, and within are expansive habitats for a collection of rare and endangered magical creatures from Newt’s travels around globe. The movie starts off with the wizard arriving in New York City, where magic wielders live in fear of being discovered and persecuted by “No-Maj,” or non-magic folk. The EW story characterizes the backlash as “ironic, because ‘Fantastic Beasts’ is actually a story about acceptance.” “Like all of Jo Rowling’s works, [‘Fantastic Beasts’] is populated with a variety of people and that will be the same in this series over the course of the films,” Heyman explained. “There will be people of various types of ethnicities,” he continued. “In New York in the 1920s, there was a segregation between white and black, the neighborhoods were largely separate, and that is reflected in [the film]. He discovers the American wizarding community is fearfully hiding from Muggles (who are called “No-Maj” in the States … ) and the threat of public exposure is an even graver concern than in the UK (remember the Salem witch trials?).

There are people of color filling this world in an organic way.” Apart from the EW spread, most details about the film have been kept under wraps, so perhaps this is much ado about nothing and there are lots of diverse supporting characters in the film. Niffler: A treasure-hunting creature attracted to shiny things, like belt buckles and gold teeth, and a favorite of Fantastic Beasts star Eddie Redmayne. “They have this wonderful love-hate relationship,” Redmayne says of Newt and his Niffler. “He’s incredibly aggravating and wonderful at same time. Merpeople: Rowling previously put a ferocious spin on the classic underwater-dwelling humanoid sea creatures. (First spotted in Harry Potter and the Goblet of Fire).
