Here’s a brand-new featurette for J.K. Rowling’s Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them which gets its worldwide release on November 18, 2016 courtesy of Warner Bros. Pictures.
Eddie Redmayne stars in the central role of wizarding world magizoologist Newt Scamander who has 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.
