The cast shares the magic in this Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them featurette
We get a behind the scenes look in a new featurette of Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them, in which the actors, who have been introduced to and enraptured by this whimsical world J.K. Rowling created, hope that the audience shares their love for Harry Potter’s expanded universe in this film.
“It’s unlike anything I’ve ever been a part of.” -Eddie Redmayne (Newt Scamander)
“Fans of Harry Potter…they’re going to feel the nostalgia and the love they have of the movies in a whole new light.” Dan Fogler (Jacob Kowalski)
Rowling’s first screenplay is based in the same magical world as Harry Potter, but set in 1926 New York City. Newt Scamander, a magizoologist traveling the world with an expanding briefcase full of magical creatures, plans to only stay in New York briefly. But when a muggle/no-maj (human without magical powers) opens his briefcase and accidentally releases several of the creatures within, Scamander’s stay gets a lot lengthier.
Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them premieres November 18, 2016.
