Based on the JK Rowling book, this is neither a prequel nor a sequel to the Harry Potter series, but an extension of the wizarding world. Academy Award winner Eddie Redmayne stars as Newt Scamander, the wizarding world’s preeminent magizoologist. In 1926, Scamander has just completed a global excursion to find and document an 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.
