Did the TARDIS morph into a blue coat? The only way for this to get any Matt Smith-ier without actually being Matt Smith would be another $300 of product to plaster that hair into perma-submission.

world-famous magizoologist Newt Scamander, who embarks on an adventure in 1926 New York. In our cover image (see the full image below), you get a first look at Scamander, his pivotal briefcase in hand, standing inside the entrance of the majestic art deco-influenced Magical Congress of the United States of America (or MACUSA), which is the American version of the Ministry of Magic that’s housed inside the Woolworth Building in the film.
