Eddie Redmayne Reveals His Favorite Beasts

The most highly anticipated movie coming this fall has to be Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them. The wizarding world is opening its doors again to us muggles after a long wait since the last Potter movie. Eddie Redmayne will play the lead, Newt Scamander, and he’s the perfect fit!

Pottermore interviewed Eddie about his experience filming and trying to make the beasts seem as real as possible. Eddie said that his favorite beast is “Pickett the Bowtruckle,” because “he’s clingy and he’s got attachment issues but I also love that he’s so spindly and stick-insecty. You almost can’t see his face but he reacts through his movement.”

He also said, “The other one I love is the Demiguise.” There’s a special scene with it in the movie, but Pottermore and Eddie won’t reveal it.

Before the movie comes out, Empire Magazine will be releasing a moving cover for their magazine! Yes! Just like The Daily Prophet! You can read about how this is possible on Pottermore
