Warner Bros. revealed the exclusive one-sheet on Twitter, ahead of their Hall H panel this weekend, and the art deco-y design gives us our first look at Samantha Morton and Ezra Miller's characters. In the much-anticipated prequel, set in 1920's New York, Morton plays Mary Lou, the leader of the fanatical Second Salemers. Miller plays her adopted son, Credence.
These two characters have yet to appear in any of the previously released trailers or stills, so not much is known about their roles in director David Yates' film, scripted by Rowling. But, according to Entertainment Weekly, Mary Lou "is a fanatical radicalist hellbent on exposing and destroying witches and wizards."
In addition to those reveals, we get another look at Eddie Redmayne's Newt Scamander and, at the top of the poster, a very cool look at the seal of the Magical Congress of the U.S.A. -- MACUSA for short. (Think the yankee version of the Ministry of Magic.)
"Fantastic Beasts" takes Hall H Saturday, July 3, at 11:30 PST, and the film hits theaters Nov. 18.
The year is 1926, and Newt Scamander (Eddie Redmayne) 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.
