Harry Potter fans of the world rejoice because the wizarding world will come back to life on the big screen in the new adaptation of Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find them starring Academy Award winner Eddie Redmayne playing magizoologist Newt Scamander.
J.K. Rowling is responsible for the story and the script, which is different from what the producers behind the movie originally penned as a plot, but the Harry Potter creator had an even better idea.
The film takes place in 1926 with Newt Scamander traveling from England to the United States for the majority of the movie.
Newt is off to America with his magical case that houses all of the fantastic creatures he’s discovered across the globe and this latest trip takes him across the pond where he begins looking for even more animals to add to his collection.
He discovers rather quickly, however, that the magic community in the United States lives in fear of being discovered by their own muggles (called ‘No-maj’) and being outed publicly is an even bigger threat than what we’ve seen in past movies of Harry Potter in England.
Unfortunately while Newt is traveling through the States to find more creatures, his magical case gets opened and many of his specimens — some of them rather dangerous — escape and he’s forced to track them down before the Americans find out what kind of magic is taking place right in their own backyard.
Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them is slated for a November 18, 2016 release date.
