Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them is a 2016 live-action film based on the novel of the same name by the film's predecessor, J.K Rowling. The film takes place in 1926, sixty four years before the beginning of the Harry Potter franchise.


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 No-Maj (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.
