The Oscar-winning actor portrays magizoologist Newt Scamander, who “chases the mayhem-causing magical creatures that have escaped his briefcase and remain on the loose in 1926 New York.”
“There is a dark aspect to it,” Eddie said about the movie. “I think it’s going to be surprising how moving it is.”
His co-star Colin Farrell added, “[J.K. Rowling] could take a place like New York, a city we’re all familiar with, and present it in a way that’s recognizable yet brand-new. She pulls back the corner of the picture and shows you another world behind the veil.”
Mark your calendars – Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them drops into theaters on November 18.
