Wanting to get a closer look at the extraordinary no-stone-left-unturned detail that went into the making of Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them? Dozens of new photos from the film were released today that give fans a chance to pore over every nuance before the movie's November 18 premiere. From small details such as the interesting collar clip on Percival Graves (played by Colin Farrell) to Beasts large and small, there is something fun and noteworthy to notice in every photo. Here is just a small sampling of today's photo release. You can find them all in greater detail, including posters and trailers, on our Fantastic Beasts title page.

It's smiles all around when screenwriter/producer and the creator of the Wizarding World herself, J.K. Rowling, poses for a photo on the set with Waterston, Fogler, Sudol and Redmayne.

Arrive at the November 18 premiere of Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them in style, thanks to an upcoming fashion collection based on the film to be released at Hot Topic on November 8. Looks in the nine-piece collection include Newt Scamander's finely tailored, close-cut blue duster coat, a Queenie Goldstein flapper dress, and Seraphina Picquery's off-the-shoulder dress with deco-inspired details. Fans of design and cosplayers alike are sure to appreciate interesting details such as sewn-in "wand pockets" lining the inner shell of the coats. Prices will range from approximately $29–$99.

Eddie Redmayne himself has admitted being keen on Scamander's sartorial choices. In an interview with Pottermore.com he had this to say about the already-famous blue coat:

It’s interesting, my costume, because one of the main routes into this character is the way he moves. With the tightness at the top of that coat, Newt’s a compact kind of guy, especially when you think about all the vials and magic he can fit in that coat. The trousers are slightly too short for him too, which works for the way I move as him. And it’s the 1920s. I love the whole look of that era.

The entire collection will include:

Queenie Goldstein Flapper Dress, $69.90 (shown above)
Guy's Newt Scamander Coat, $79.90 (shown above)
Seraphina Picquery Off-The-Shoulder Dress, $89.90 (shown above)
Queenie Goldstein Coat, $99.90
Tina Goldstein Pin-Up Dress, $59.90
Symbol Skater Dress, $54.90
Guy's Symbols Woven, $44.90
Fantastic Beasts Sharkbite Top, $32.90
MACUSA Burnout Raglan, $28.90
