Pottermore released the main theme of ‘Fantastic Beasts’ and yep, it’s good
Yes, this seems to be the sound of magic, if magic had a sound.
Following the beloved score of the original Harry Potter series is not what we’d call an enviable task. James Newton Howard, the composer for Fantastic Beasts, apparently took seven months to write the score for the new story in the Potter universe. If the recently released main theme is any indication, Howard’s time was time well spent.
Beginning with the familiar ‘Hedwig’s Theme,’ the Fantastic Beasts theme then delves into its own original melody.
All aboard the hype train.
