Seeing as wizards read newspapers with moving pictures all the time, Empire’s cover features a special design that will make the magazine look like an actual enchanted newspaper. Modelled on American wizarding paper The New York Ghost – the cover will be magically embedded with two moving videos. You can fully interact with the cover, press play on the videos, and even charge it. Yep, really.
The technology behind the cover makes this a world-first in the magazine industry. Well, the Muggle and No-Maj magazine industries anyway.
One video will be an exclusive behind-the-scenes featurette of Fantastic Beasts', while the other will show off the film’s latest trailer, which you’ll actually be able to watch before opening the magazine. What is this witchcraft?!
Jonathan Pile, deputy editor at Empire, assured us the only wizardry involved was technological.
