As it turns out, life was hard for wizards in North America. One of the worst dangers that they faced were called the Scourers, magic bounty hunters who ran amok in the absence of an actual ministry of magic.
“Though European explorers called it ‘the New World’ when they first reached the continent, wizards had known about America long before Muggles”
While most of the world is only thinking about Star Wars, Muggles all over are jumping for joy because the first trailer for Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them has just been released.
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.
Entertainment Weekly has released a whole slew of images from the upcoming film, including a cover that spotlights Redmayne as Newt Scamander.
Warner Bros. Pictures has slated “Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them” for worldwide release in 3D and IMAX on November 18, 2016.
The book is set seventy years before Harry Potter in New York City. The story follows Newt Scamander, the author of Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them, which became one of Harry’s schoolbooks.
