Since Fantastic Beasts and Where to find Them is about Newt Scamander’s visit to New York City, it’s only fitting that Fantastic Beasts came to New York Comic Con (NYCC)!
Or rather, the costumes did! Warner Bros. had their first booth at NYCC and it was filled with costumes from the upcoming film.
The booth also hosted wand training sessions where fans could learn a spell. Randomly, they would reward limited quantities of fans who posted their training video to social media with wands or t-shirts. Of course I waited for hours and the last freebie went to the person in front of me! Sigh.
At least I got into the signing with Dan Fogler! He was upbeat as he met fans for quick signature and photo.
Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them, the first of 5 (!) movies set in the Harry Potter world, debuts November 18th!
