What a great morning to wake up to this kind of news. As a huge Harry Potter fan I’m absolutely thrilled with the news that Eddie Redmayne is cast for the role of Newt Scamander. I love Eddie Redmayne and think that he will be a perfect Newt Scamander.
Redmayne will play J.K. Rowling’s creation Newt Scamander, the Wizarding World’s preeminent magizoologist, who in his travels has encountered and documented a myriad of magical creatures, ultimately leading to his penning the Hogwarts School textbook Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them. (Official Press Release)
Isn’t it fantastic that an oscarwinning actor is going to enter the Wizarding World we all love and adore! What do you guys think about Eddie Redmayne being cast as Newt Scamander?
