We’re all so obsessed with Star Wars that it is difficult to imagine having to freak out about something new. However, the geek is strong with us and we can handle (and certainly welcome) some news from the magical world of Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them – The Harry Potter spin-off that’s getting its own big screen adaptation in 2016.
Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them follows the adventurous life of world-renowned magizoologist Newt Scamander (portrayed by Eddie Redmayne) and also stars Katherine Waterston as Porpentina “Tina” Goldstein and Collin Farrel as Graves. The story takes place 70 years prior to the events depicted in the Harry Potter novels. The movie is set in New York and is based on the novel which was written by J.K. Rowling based off of the textbook used by students attending Hogwarts School For Witchcraft and Wizardy. Other famous faces to appear in this magical adventure include Dan Fogler, Samantha Morton, Ezra Miller and Jenn Murray.
The movie is directed by David Yates and was written by none other than J.K. Rowling herself. You can catch it next year in November.
