'Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them' Gets a New BTS Featurette - Watch Now!

Eddie Redmayne gives us a glimpse at his upcoming movie Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them in this new behind-the-scenes featurette!

Written by Harry Potter author J.K. Rowling, the movie 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.

It also stars Katherine Waterston, Dan Fogler, Alison Sudol, Ezra Miller, and Colin Farrell.

Mark you calendars now – Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them opens on November 18!
