While waiting for the film's premiere, let's take a look at the interesting facts about the movie that have just been released!

Daniel Radcliffe Admits He's Jealous of Redmayne's Look

Harry Potter fans have been going wild for the first-look photos of Eddie Redmayne in Fantastic Beasts And Where To Find Them. And Daniel Radcliffe is not an exception. The 26-year-old actor joked in a new interview with NME magazine: 'Oh f**k you, Eddie, in your brilliant costume… I got jeans and a zip top for 10 years and you’ve got a greatcoat already?'

Costume designer of the movie is Colleen Atwood, who was nominated for an Oscar 11 times and won 3 ones. Colleen is famous worldwide for his vintage costumes made totally manually.

Eddie Redmayne Really Wanted To Be a Member of the Weasley Family

Eddie Redmayne is ready to make his mark on the world of Harry Potter with his leading role in next year’s Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them. It turns out, however, that he would have been much happier with a smaller role, if he’d had an opportunity to be in the film series much earlier.

"For years I was always like, in the Harry Potter films, there was a whole ginger family, and I never got an audition. And I was like, come on, it's outrageous! Every actor in England was in the Harry Potter films, but I never got the call."

Eddie Redmayne won an Oscar for The Best Actor in 2015 thanks to his role in The Theory of Everything. Although in 2016, he was not highly appreciated playing in Lucifer, the role of a transgender in The Danish Girl helped him get back on track and become more and more famous.

Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them is expected to be a trilogy and the first movie will be released on 18/11/2016.
