Muggles rejoice! Official merchandise for Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them has been revealed, and it will make fans feel more magical than ever.
Merchoid recently unveiled its new collection of Harry Potter clothing based on the upcoming film. The line features t-shirts and hoodies that are up for pre-order now. These licensed tops might not be as cozy as a standard Hogwarts cloak, but the wizard-approved pieces will have you saying ‘Accio!’
If you look at the collection, then you will see some exclusive art from Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them. Several of the shirts feature art from MACUSA (Magical Congress of the United States of America) and several in-story magazines from the Wizarding World. For instance, one design shows the slogan ‘Save America from Witches.’
Jessica Adam, Merchoid Community Manager, shared her excitement over the new line in a statement. “If you’re excited to see the next step in the Harry Potter cinematic universe and want to know more about fantastic shirts and where to buy them, look no further,” she gushed.
The collection houses five ladies t-shirts and a hoodie. For the guys, they will be able to get three sweet shirts for themselves.
While Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them comes out in December, hype for the film is getting bigger by the day. Fandango recently confirmed the Harry Potter spin-off is the most anticipated film of the fall. Erik Davis, the managing editor at the site, said, “All of this excitement around the Harry Potter universe is feeding into Fantastic Beasts. It's all about timing and Harry Potter's world is clicking with great, calculated timing right now.”
Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them opens in 1926 as Newt Scamander has just completed a global excursion to find and document an extraordinary array of magical creatures. Arriving in New York for a brief stopover, he might have come and gone without incident…were it not for a No-Maj (American for Muggle) named Jacob, a misplaced magical case, and the escape of some of Newt’s fantastic beasts, which could spell trouble for both the wizarding and No-Maj worlds.
