Fantastic Beasts Posters Showcase Cast, Deathly Hallows Connection

The latest round of posters for “Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them” isn’t concerned with dragons, griffins or even the errant boggart, but rather a detailed taxonomy of its starring actors and actresses. The nine new posters for the “Harry Potter” spinoff cover nearly all the major roles in the film.

Eddie Redmayne plays Newt Scamander in the film. Scamander is a magizoologist who, after being expelled from Hogwarts, travels to New York City and immediately beings mucking things up with magical beasts.

Katherine Waterston plays Tina Goldstein, a former member of the MACUSA—the Magical Congress of the United States of America—before having her position stripped for using dangerous magic.

Alison Sudol plays Queenie Goldstein. Queenie is Tina’s younger sister, a mind reader and a carefree wand maker. Queenie is much more lighthearted than her sister, who is obsessed with regaining her status in the MACUSA.

Of course, no movie is set without its antagonists. Samantha Morton plays Mary Lou Barebone, an enthusiastic no-maj witch and wizard hunter. She is head of the New Salem Philanthropic Society, which can’t be anything good.

Only Ron Perlman can do the goblin mobster Gnarlak justice. Gnarlak runs a speakeasy in the heart of Prohibition, and might be a suitable ally for a wizard on the run. Little is known about Gnarlak at this point.

Colin Farrell plays Percival Graves, the Director of Magical Security. Graves is hot on the heels of Newt, whose every move seems to bring the human world closer to discovering the existence of magic. But Graves does have the time to stop and befriend Credence, a beleaguered no-maj whose mother is the head of witch hunters in America.

It’s worth noting that the necklace in Graves’ poster is the symbol for the Deathly Hallows. Time to get that speculation running rampant!

“Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them” debuts in theaters November 18, 2016.
