THE magic of Harry Potter lives on in this Warner Bros spin-off penned by J.K. Rowling, and intended as the first chapter in a whole new fantasy film franchise.

Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them describes 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.

The year is 1926 and 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, or a person who does not do magic) 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.
