In Details

 

Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them is an all-new adventure returning us to the wizarding world created by J.K. Rowling, whose beloved Harry Potter books were adapted into the top-grossing film franchise of all time.  Rowling makes her screenwriting debut with the film inspired by the Hogwarts textbook of the same name, with Oscar® winner Eddie Redmayne (The Theory of Everything) starring in the central role of wizarding world magizoologist Newt Scamander.  Under the direction of David Yates, who helmed the last four Harry Potter blockbusters, Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them opens in 1926 as Newt Scamander has just completed a global excursion to find and document an extraordinary array of magical creatures. 

Arriving in New York for a brief stopover, he might have come and gone without incident…were it not for a No-Maj (American for Muggle) named Jacob, a misplaced magical case, and the escape of some of Newt’s fantastic beasts, which could spell trouble for both the wizarding and No-Maj worlds.
