Eddie Redmayne stars in this highly anticipated new adventure, set in JK Rowling’s wizarding world.
It’s 1926 and magizoologist Newt Scamander (Redmayne), arrives in New York for a meeting at the Magical Congress of the United States of America. But he’s not alone. The magically expanded suitcase that Newt carries houses a number of dangerous creatures that he’s collected from around the world. When these creatures escape, Newt is forced to go to great lengths to recapture the beats, whilst evading the wrath of the American wizarding authorities and the detection of muggles.
Written for the screen by JK Rowling and directed by the filmmaker behind four of the Harry Potter films, David Yates, this new adventure features an excellent supporting cast including Colin Farrell, Katherine Waterston and Ezra Miller.
