FANTASTIC BEASTS AND WHERE TO FIND THEM
In 2016 Writer J.K. Rowling invites you to return to the wizarding world!
“The adventures of writer Newton Scamander (Eddie Redmayne) in 1920’s New York’s secret community of witches and wizards seventy years before Harry Potter reads his book in school.
Eccentric magizoologist Newt Scamander comes to New York (for a reason we won’t disclose) with his trusty weathered case. This case is one of those way-way-way-bigger-on-the-inside magical devices, and within are expansive habitats for a collection of rare and endangered magical creatures from Newt’s travels around globe. He discovers the American wizarding community is fearfully hiding from Muggles (who are called ‘No-Maj’ in the US) and the threat of public exposure is an even graver concern than in the UK (remember the Salem witch trials?). Fantastic Beasts is the story of what happens when this uniquely skilled English wizard travels to wiz-phobic America and a variety of his creatures, some quite dangerous,… get out of their case.”
And here’s the first official poster:
That case is a Pandora box, am not sure one should open it…
