Following yesterday’s photo reveal, we’ve got the first plot details for Warner Bros. Pictures’ upcoming British-American fantasy drama film, Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them.
Here’s the plot details from EW:
Eddie Redmayne’s Newt Scamander comes to New York (for a reason we won’t disclose) with his trusty weathered case.
This case is one of those way-way-way-bigger-on-the-inside magical devices, and within are expansive habitats for a collection of rare and endangered magical creatures from Newt’s travels around globe.
He discovers the American wizarding community is fearfully hiding from Muggles (who are called “No-Maj” in the States, more on that here) and the threat of public exposure is an even graver concern than in the UK (remember the Salem witch trials?).
Fantastic Beasts is the story of what happens when this uniquely skilled English wizard travels to wiz-phobic America and a variety of his creatures, some quite dangerous … get out of their case.”
The film is inspired by the book of the same name by J. K. Rowling.
It stars Eddie Redmayne, Katherine Waterston, Alison Sudol, Dan Fogler, Ezra Miller, Samantha Morton, Colin Farrell, Faith Wood-Blagrove, Jenn Murray, Elizabeth Moynihan, Christine Marzano, Denis Khoroshko, Jon Voight, Gemma Chan, Carmen Ejogo and Ron Perlman.
Directed by David Yates, produced by David Heyman, scripted by Steve Kloves and screenplay by J.K. Rowling.
Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them is scheduled to be released on November 18, 2016 in 3D and IMAX 4K Laser format.
