The year is 1926 and Newt Scamander has travelled the world collecting magical creatures. But whilst having a brief stop in New York, his case full of creatures is misplaced.
Warner Bros. and J.K. Rowling have had an unprecedented success with the Harry Potter franchise. However, you always knew that once Harry’s story had finished, Warner Bros would want to keep creating more stories from that magical world.
‘Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them’ is a prequel to the Harry Potter series of films set several decades earlier. This first teaser is a very brief look as the finished film isn’t released until late next year.
Title: Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find | Release Date US: 18th November | UK: 18th November
“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.
