Meet the characters in Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them!
Quiet, no spoilers here, but you’ll find very valuable information. When it was announced that Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them will be in theaters, perhaps you’ve wondered how a catalog of creatures so thin might have material for a trilogy.
Warner Bros initially had the idea to make a documentary about the “author” Newt Scamander, who tracked magical beasts in the world of Harry Potter exactly 70 years ago.
The author, J.K Rowling had a better idea so he wrote his own screenplay for the first time. It is true that they have adapted Harry Potter books to the movies, but she only gave certain creative contributions in Harry Potter series. Fantastic Beasts is her first screenplay.
What can we expect from the first movie?
The magizoologist, Newt Scamander (Eddie Redmayne) arrives in New York with a case that holds much more than it seems. This time there is a strange collection of magical creatures found in his trip around the world, revealed Entertainmet Weekly.
Soon he discovers that the wizarding community fearful of hides Muggles and that the threat of public exposure is an even greater concern than in the UK. Fantastic Beast is the story of what happens when Newt travels to the United States with a variety of creatures in his case.
