SFX: The Sci-Fi and Fantasy Magazine - - The Ed Zone -

It’s been a whole five years since we last vis­ited JK Rowl­ing’s mag­i­cal world on the big screen – but surely no­body ac­tu­ally thought that Harry Pot­ter And The Deathly Hal­lows would be our fi­nal trip. As nu­mer­ous books, the Pot­ter­more web­site and the smash-hit Harry Pot­ter And The Cursed Child West End play have shown, Rowl­ing’s uni­verse is so vast that there are plenty of sto­ries still left to tell. That’s why we’re re­ally ex­cited about new movie Fan­tas­tic Beasts And Where To Find Them, a 1920s-set pre­quel that’ll show us the mag­i­cal side of New York – and the crea­tures that live there. We flew to LA to catch up with stars Ed­die Red­mayne, Kather­ine Water­ston and Colin Far­rell, plus di­rec­tor David Yates, about leav­ing the world of Mug­gles be­hind once more (p44).

That’s not the end of the magic this month, as we get the in­sider in­tel on Mar­vel’s first big screen dab­ble with sor­cery in Doc­tor Strange (p54). Also, in a bulging SFX, there’s Char­lie Brooker yakking about the re­turn of Black Mir­ror for its big­gest se­ries yet (p58), ex­ec­u­tive pro­ducer Gale Anne Hurd talk­ing TV’s bestkept se­cret on The Walk­ing Dead (p78), and a trip to the set of Doc­tor Who spin-off Class (p64).

Our next is­sue, on sale Wed­nes­day 9 Novem­ber, is our cel­e­bra­tion of Star Wars: Rogue One, the big­gest movie of the year. Sub­scribe by 19 Oc­to­ber (see p42 for de­tails) to make sure you don’t miss it! See me on page 80 richard Ed­wards, Edi­tor @richdEd­wards
