New Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them posters tease a link to the Deathly Hallows

UPDATE (11/10/2016):

Just when we thought all the poster teasing was over, Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them has revealed a full collection of character posters, including Samantha Morton's seriously evil Mary Lou and her son Credence. Colin Farrell too is looking pretty, err, grave, as US Director of Magical Security Percival Graves. 

Potter fans might also be interested to know that there's a literal dangling tease of the Deathly Hallows on Grave's poster too. Check out that necklace on the top left. Given that the previous Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them trailer had mention of the wizard Grindelwald and the JK Rowling penned movie might have much more a tie to Harry Potter's adventures than we first thought. Check out the full collection below. 

UPDATE (28/9/2016):

The final poster for Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them has been revealed. There's not long to wait until we get to see them all in action, but this is another look at Newt Scamander, wizarding sisters Queenie and Porpentina Goldstein, and muggle baker Jacob Kowalski (who it appears Newt just never cast a memory charm on to make him forget) in New York. 

It's also clear now that they're up against much more than just some magical creatures as the villainous New Salem Philanthropic society attempts to expose witches and wizards in America.  

UPDATE (22/7/2016):  

With San Diego Comic Con in full swing, we're getting a slew of fresh posters for a bunch of anticipated movies. Ahead of Warner Bros' stint in Hall H tomorrow, the studio has released a brand new poster for Fantastic Beasts And Where To Find Them via Twitter. This newest design is a glitzy art deco affair, showcasing the whole cast of characters set to debut in this return to JK Rowling's wizarding world. 

Eddie Redmayne's Newt Scamander takes center stage over a view of 1920s New York City. On either side of him are his supporting cast, including Katherine Waterston, Dan Fogler, Colin Farrell and Alison Sudol. For the first time we've got a look at Samantha Morton's Mary Lou and Ezra Miller as her son, Credence. Granted, they're only tiny heads on this poster, but it's great to finally get an idea of what to expect from two of the movie's villains. Take a peek at the poster, below...

Back in 2011 it looked like Harry Potter's story - both on the page and on cinema screens - was over, but J.K. Rowling's beloved wizarding world is making somewhat of a resurgence in 2016. In addition to the highly anticipated theatre production Harry Potter and the Cursed Child, Harry Potter spin-off Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them will be making its cinematic debut later this year. We have a new poster for the latter, and you can check it out below...

The Fantastic Beasts' twitter account also teases a big announcement coming soon, and that could very likely mean that a new trailer will be popping online at some point this week. The first teaser - which was revealed back in April - didn't really show all that much, so here's hoping the next footage drop we get is a little more satisfying.

Directed by David Yates and starring Eddie Redmayne, Katherine Waterston, Colin Farrell, Samantha Morton, Jon Voight, Gemma Chan, Ron Perlman, and Ezra Miller, Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them is scheduled to hit UK and US cinemas on November 18, 2016.
