Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them — Behind-the-Scenes Featurette


added: Sun, Jan 31st '16

For those who attended this weekend's annual Harry Potter Celebration at Universal Orlando Resort, a special Harry Potter presentation got everyone fired up when it premiered a new behind-the-scenes sneak peek at the much-anticipated wizard adventure flick "Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them."

The featurette, which found its way online yesterday, shows off some exciting on-the-set footage of Oscar-winning actor Eddie Redmayne (The Danish Girl, The Theory of Everything) as Newt Scamander, an English magizoologist/animal researcher traveling through 1926 New York City when "Fantastic Beasts" unexpectedly escape from his magical briefcase.

The film is based on J.K. Rowling's 2001 Harry Potter-related​ companion book which was made to look like an old Hogwarts School textbook. The movie also stars Katherine Waterston, Dan Fogler, Alison Sudol, and Colin Farrell, with the story taking place in America, exploring their side of the wizarding world.

Directed by David Yates, who directed the final four "Harry Potter" films, "Fantastic Beasts" is based on a script by Rowling, which is her first ever screenplay. The film will be hitting theaters everywhere on November 18th.

The adventures of writer Newt Scamander in New York's secret community of witches and wizards seventy years before Harry Potter reads his book in school.
