Get ready, Harry Potter fans! The Fantastic Beasts hype train is about to depart the station.
The film’s official social media accounts and website have gone live ahead of a first look on the cover of Entertainment Weekly on Wednesday.
The spinoff’s Facebook page also offers this interesting line on a recent post: “Prepare yourself for the beasts are coming.”
If you take a close look at the profile picture on Facebook you’ll also see it has drops of water on it. Or is that dragon snot? What does it all meannnnnn?
Edit: One of our readers pointed out the drops of water may actually be dents, not liquid.
Fantastic Beasts’ official logo is, unsurprisingly, inspired by a dragon. It also uses the tagline “From J.K. Rowling’s Wizarding World,” which has popped up on Pottermore’s and The Cursed Child’s websites in recent weeks. This appears to be the way all of the various Harry Potter offshoots will be saddled together.
Speaking of Pottermore, they have a few additional details about the design of the logo:
So what about the beasts which inspired them? The designers remain tight-lipped on potential spoilers, but can reveal that the ’S’ was inspired by a creature that does appear in the film.
‘The logo is a blend of beasts, it’s not just one takeaway. When we arrived on idea for the ’S’ it excited us. So we thought there must be a way to accent these other letters with claws or ribs — hints to other beasts, while this one is the logo’s centrepiece.’
Stay tuned for a lot more tomorrow (Wednesday)! The movie opens next November and stars Eddie Redmayne as Newt Scamander.
