And so it begins.
The official Fantastic Beasts title art has been revealed & includes ten international language versions, with more to appear in the coming weeks. To view them all, click the image below:
Pottermore sat down with one of the designers working on the logo & here is what they had to say:
‘If you think of Harry Potter, that logo instantly comes into your mind: the lightning bolt ‘P’ and the shape of the words. So we wanted this one to feel like it was born of that same world. We were trying to come up with something that drafted similarly off that iconography but in a new way. In a Fantastic Beasts way.’
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.’
In addition to all this, Warner Bros have launched official Fantastic Beasts accounts across social media, along with an official website, each with the tagline “Prepare yourself, for the beasts are coming….”

EW will also be running Fantastic Beasts as their cover story tomorrow, so be sure to check back to see that:
Fantastic Beasts is our next cover story with an exclusive first look at the new film and all sorts of scoop that we don’t want to spoil just yet. We’re going to reveal the cover on Good Morning America on Wednesday morning, plus right here on EW.com.
They also confirmed that the first movie is set in the year 1926, which we reported back in August.
