Now, the movie awaits the hardcore fans who will no doubt love the movie.
Fans of the Harry Potter franchise are excited to see a different take on the Wizarding World. With a cast led by Eddie Redmayne’s Newt Scamander and Katherine Waterston’s Porpentina “Tina” Goldstein, the movies cast also includes Dan Fogler, Colin Farrell, Alison Sudol, Carmen Ejogo, Samantha Morton, Ezra Miller, Ron Perlman and Jon Voight. The film is directed Harry Potter veteran director David Yates with J.K. Rowling having written the screenplay.
“Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them” is set in the year 1926, and Newt Scamander (Eddie Redmayne) 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.
