We love ‘Harry Potter’ here at Unicorns HQ, so we couldn’t contain our excitement when we found out that there was going to be a HP prequel and the end of this year -and it seems as though our favourite Internet stars couldn’t wait either. We’ve already looked back to when some of our faves were actually in Harry Potter, but now the Wizarding World has got them posing in 1920s New York, with their wands at the ready.
One of these vlogging wizards is Tyler Oakley, who is fronting the film’s new promotional campaign and we must admit, he’s looking pretty magical. Tyler is just one of the many faces we recognise in the ‘Fantastic Beasts’ long list of YouTubers from around the world; so far we’ve spotted Ingrid Nilsen, Jack Maynard and Charlie McDonnell – who are all looking ready to cast a spell on us.
The film started posting the pictures to their Twitter account yesterday (June 20, 2016 ), just after revealing a brand new poster for the movie, accompanied by a huge tease at a ‘Fantastic Beasts’ themed “stunt” at the massive YouTube convention, ‘VidCon’ this week. We are praying for a viral ‘Fantastic Beats’ vid featuring the international YouTubers they’ve chosen to promote the film.
However the film, that is set to released in November, is nothing like the original story based on the books by JK Rowling. The movie is set before Harry Potter was even born, but there has already been hints in the trailer that some of our favourite original characters could be making an appearance alongside Fantastic Beasts main character Newt Scamander, who happens to be played by the amazing Eddie Redmayne.
We can’t wait to see what these ‘Fantastic Beasts’ YouTubers have got up their sleeve for this weeks ‘VidCon’ convention in LA. But for now, we’re just going to have to hold out until its release date to see if any of our faves will actually be featuring in this new instalment. In the meantime, let us know what you think the huge ‘VidCon’ surprise could be in the comments.
