You hear that? That’s the sound of thousands of Harry Potter fans screaming because Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them hits cinemas in just a few days!
It’s been five long years since a Harry Potter film has graced the big screen, and J.K. Rowling has chosen to bring back the magic with her latest story within the Wizarding World – the story of Newt Scamander himself!
Now, in case you were unaware, we here at TenEighty HQ are massive Potterheads, having read the books and watched the films numerous times (and we mean numerous). You know who else are huge fans of the series? YouTubers! So of course they all had to be in attendance for the London premiere of Fantastic Beasts, where they rocked the blue carpet while getting to breathe in the same air as J.K. Rowling herself.
We don’t think we’ve ever been so jealous.
So. Much. Excitement.

Sitting down to watch #FantasticBeasts. SO RIDDIKULUS-ly EXCITED!

Harry Potter was a huge part of our childhoods and we loved following the adventures of the boy wizard as he worked to defeat the evil Lord Voldemort. So it’s no surprise to us that Jim Chapman, Chloe Dungate and everyone else were overwhelmed with excitement. We know we would be!
Perfect selfie conditions

Premieres are a family affair

It’s only right to share the magic of the Wizarding World with those we hold near and dear to our hearts, and for Lex Croucher and Caspar Lee, that meant bringing along the family. If that doesn’t melt your heart, we don’t know what will.

Is it even a TenEighty article if we don’t highlight our favourite squads? Tuesday night’s #SquadGoals definitely went to Connie Glynn, Luke Cutforth, Pete Bucknall, Jamie Jo, and Tom Burns, who all looked quite dashing. We wish we could clean up that well!
Is it cool if we ask for some fashion advice?
I want Ezra Miller's jacket #FantasticBeasts

We’re sure Niki Albon wasn’t the only one getting some fashion inspiration while walking the blue carpet.
IT’S J.K. ROWLING. WE REPEAT, IT’S J.K. ROWLING.

Leave it to Luke Franks to stir up some trouble… Hopefully, London isn’t currently overrun by magical creatures. Best have your wands at the ready though, just to be on the safe side.
We suggest asking Luke

#FantasticBeasts was great! So many emotions and so happy to be visiting the Wizarding World once again ✨ Newt is easily a new favourite

Magic was truly in the air!
From the sounds of it, Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them is a total success, and many of our faves are now huge fans of Newt Scamander (as if they wouldn’t be). The question is though: do they like Newt more than Harry? We need to know!
