Hollywood vet Jon Voight, Humans star Gemma Chan, Selma star Carmen Ejogo will all join Eddie Redmayne in the upcoming film adaptation of J.K. Rowling’s Harry Potter spin-off, Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them.

The film, which stars Eddie Redmayne as main character Newt Scamander, will welcome three new talents to their production with the additions of Voight, Chan and Ejogo being announced today.

A spin-off from the hugely popular Harry Potter series, the events of Fantastic Beasts take place about seven decades before Potter’s story even begins. The story follows the adventures of magizoologist Newt Scamander and is based on the Hogwarts textbook he eventually ends up writing, detailing said adventures. Katherine Westerson’s Porpentina and Alison Sudol’s Queenie meet Scamander when he stops in New York City on his travels to find and document magical creatures.

The film also stars Ezra Miller, who will be bringing Kredan to life; Colin Farrell as Graves, a wizard that crosses paths with Scamander while in New York; Dan Fogler, who will play Jacob, “a non-wizard type who runs into Newt Scamander (Redmayne) when he stops in New York City on his travels to find and document magical creatures,” and Samantha Morton as Mary Lou.

The first Fantastic Beasts film is scheduled to debut November 18, 2016.
