Fantastic Beasts and What To Name Them? The highly anticipated follow up to the immensely popular Harry Potter franchise, Fantastic Beasts And Where To Find Them, is in theaters tomorrow (and in some places tonight). Our anticipation is over! It’s time to go see what this bad boy is all bout.

The few reviews that have made their way onto the internet thus far have been generally positive about the new magical film, which is both reassuring and exciting. But what about the future films, you ask? Specifically, the titles? We now actually have a bit of information on that front.

The Apple Store had a sit down with some of the prominent cast members for Fantastic Beasts this past week, and, among other things, the title formation for the upcoming installments of the franchise were touched upon.

Check it out here in the video, right at the 27 minute mark:


Nice! It seems Redmayne revealed that this set of films (there are going to be 5!) will follow the structure of how the Harry Potter films were titled. Which is to say they will all be Fantstic Beasts….and something something. It is cool that Yates and co. will be maintaining the tradition and originality of the property’s earlier titling formats. Like it? What say you?

The adventures of writer Newt Scamander in New York’s secret community of witches and wizards seventy years before Harry Potter reads his book in school.

The year is 1926 and Newt Scamander has just completed a global excursion to find and document an extraordinary array of magical creatures. Arriving in New York for a brief stopover, he might have come and gone without incident…were it not for a No-Maj (American for Muggle) named Jacob, a misplaced magical case, and the escape of some of Newt’s fantastic beasts, which could spell trouble for both the wizarding and No-Maj worlds.

Directed by David Yates, the film stars Eddie Redmayne, Colin Farrell, Katherine Waterston,  Samantha Morton, Dan Fogler, and Ezra Miller.

    She spoke a LONG time ago in an interview when the textbook was first introduced and said that she struggled to choose between “Where to Find Them”, “How to Catch Them”, and “How to Train Them”, so maybe they’re some of the options.
