One of the most anticipated films of the holiday season is Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them. Ahead of it's November release, the film is doing a special fan event in a number of cities across the world today. However, you don't have to be there in order to enjoy it. The entire event is being live streamed by Warner Bros. so sit back and relax and watch it from the comfort of your own home when it begins at 3:30 PM Eastern Time.
The Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them fan event will be made up of two parts. First, there will be a new look at the film itself which promises thrilling moments and never before seen material from the upcoming movie. Second, there will be a live Q&A featuring several of the stars of the film. The event is also being simulcast to 19 different locations around the world. However, those in attendance in London and Los Angeles are the ones who will get the extra special treat. Actors Eddie Redmayne, Katherine Waterston, Alison Sudol and Dan Fogler will be in attendance in London alongside director David Yates and producer David Heyman. Colin Farrell and Jon Voight will be in Los Angeles. Our own Eric Eisenberg is also in attendance there in case anything major takes place off camera.
It should be a great event. Not only will we get another peek at the new movie ahead of its November release, but we're sure the Q&A session with the actors will give us additional details. With a live broadcast, there's always the possibility that somebody will let some extra detail slip that they weren't supposed to. It's certainly happened before. There's a lot that we still don't know about many of these characters, so hopefully, through the Q&A we'll be able to get some insight into how everybody fits together into the story. While we know that the majority of the tale will focus on the need to recapture the escaped creatures of the title. We also know there's more going on in this story.
While we may still be a month away from Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them, Warner Bros. is so sure the film is going to be such a hit that the sequel is already being planned. At this point, it seems all but guaranteed that Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them will be a trilogy of films, all with screenplays by J.K. Rowling herself. While she was always responsible for the source material, this movie marks her debut as a screenwriter.
Be sure to check in here at 12:30 PM Pacific/3:30 PM Eastern so that you don't miss a minute of the action. Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them will be in theaters November 18.
