“Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them” is set in 1926. JK Rowling penned the script, which is her first, although she did have creative input on the “Harry Potter” films. According to Entertainment Weekly, the film follows eccentric magizoologist Newt Scamander as he goes to New York with his trusty suitcase for a reason unknown. The suitcase is magical, and carries a collection of endangered and rare magical creatures, gathered by Newt in his travels around the world. Newt discovers that the American wizards are in hiding from muggles. In his travels to New York, the beasts in his suitcase get out.

If Newt Scamander sounds familiar, it’s because he wrote the textbook “Fantastic Beasts and Where To Find Them,” which was on the syllabus for Harry Potter and other students at Hogwarts. In 2001 JK Rowling then decided to publish the book for fans under Newt’s name. The book cover was released as Harry’s copy, with a sticker on the cover claiming his ownership, and doodles from his friend Ron Weasley.

We’re all eager to find out what Newt’s findings will teach us, but we have to be patient because we have a trilogy to look forward to to find out.
