Fantastic Beasts - European Premiere Date Announced
Commented Josh Berger, President and Managing Director of Warner Bros. Entertainment U.K, Eire and Spain: "We're thrilled to hold the European premiere for 'Fantastic Beasts' in the UK, which has been the production home for not only the globally beloved 'Harry Potter' series of films but also this exciting new adventure from J.K. Rowling's Wizarding World. It's sure to be a magical night for fans, guests and the talented people in front of and behind the camera."
"Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them" features an acclaimed cast led by Eddie Redmayne, Katherine Waterston, Dan Fogler, Alison Sudol, and Colin Farrell, and will transport filmgoers to an enthralling new era of the Wizarding World – New York City in 1926.
The film reunites a number of filmmakers behind the "Harry Potter" blockbusters, including director David Yates, who helmed the last four "Harry Potter" films, as well as producers David Heyman, who shepherded all eight "Harry Potter" films, J.K. Rowling, Steve Kloves and Lionel Wigram.
The cast, filmmakers and guests attending the gala event will begin the night on the red carpet, with fans and the world's media in attendance, before making their way to the premiere screenings being held in Leicester Square's Empire and Odeon cinemas.
