Yesterday, we had a bunch of photos for you from the upcoming Harry Potter Prequel, Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them. Today, we’ve got some details on the actual story for the film:
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 States) 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.
Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them stars Eddie Redmayne as Newt Scarmander, along with a stellar cast that includes: Colin Farrell, Ezra Miller, Jon Voight, Ron Perlman, Katherine Waterston, Samantha Morton, Carmen Ejogo, and Gemma Chan.
The movie hits hits theaters November 18, 2016.
