Back To The Wizarding World of J.K. Rowling In ‘Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them’

The idea of going without the wizarding world of J.K. Rowling in our lives, is no longer something Harry Potter fans will have to accept. She’s back in 2016 with a whole new adventure from Warner Bros. Pictures, in the upcoming film, ‘Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them’.

Due to open in theaters this November 2016, Academy Award winner Eddie Redmayne (“The Theory of Everything”) stars in the central role of wizarding world magizoologist, Newt Scamander.

Director David Yates, who helmed the last four “Harry Potter” blockbusters, helps bring the screenwriting debut of J.K. Rowling, whose beloved Harry Potter books were adapted into the top-grossing film franchise of all time, to the big screen next fall.

Rowling’s script was inspired by the Hogwarts textbook Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them, written by her character Newt Scamander. As Warner Bros. Pictures describes the synopsis:

“Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them” opens in 1926 as 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 NoMaj (American for Muggle) 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”.
