Joining a franchise as much loved and well known as Harry Potter must be a pretty daunting task, which is why we totally get why Eddie Redmayne was hella nervous about filming Fantastic Beasts and Where To Find Them.

Redmayne is currently on the promo trail for the upcoming Potter-prequel, which is set for release on November 18th. The star, who previously won an Oscar for his turn as Stephen Hawking, spoke to The Guardian about how he was worried that he’d screw up Harry Potter and it’s totally understandable.

Continuing, Redmayne went on to say that he always feels pressure when it comes to making movies.

However, the nature of Potter is slightly different.

Along with the pressure from the fans, Redmayne says, there’s also the added excitement and nerves of things like Comic-Con, too.

Speaking about attending this year’s Comic-Con in San Diego, the actor said that it was an “intense” situation.

Redmayne also went on to say that he felt that Fantastic Beasts had been the hardest project he’s been involved with.

It was recently revealed that Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them would actually have five parts, something that came as a bit of a surprise to the cast.

Still, it’s not long too wait until the first film in the series hits theaters. In fact, Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them comes to cinemas on November 18th (which is literally in just over 10 days!).
