We thought Eddie Redmayne sounded like the perfect choice to play a fledgling fantasy fauna wrangler — and now we know he looks the part!
The Oscar winner showed off his magical new look for the upcoming Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them on the cover of Entertainment Weekly, and it's pretty darn fabulous!
Even the more dashing Harry Potter characters never looked this fancy! We're especially digging that Prince-from-Purple Rain hair he's got going on!

But if you look down — nope, even farther — you'll get more of a hint about the film's setting!
At Eddie's feet is the seal of the Magical Congress of the United States of America — in 1926 New York City! J.K. Rowling did tell us the flick would take us places we'd never seen in the Potterverse!
What do YOU think??
