Voldemort may be gone but our favourite wizarding film franchise lives on! Fantastic Beasts And Where To Find Them, JK Rowling’s screen-writing debut, is set in New York in 1926 – way before Harry Potter was even born!

The flick stars Eddie Redmayne as Newt Scamander (you may remember him from Harry’s textbooks), a British wizard who arrives in the Big Apple right when dark forces are threatening to expose the magic community.

Newt has just completed a mission rescuing and studying magical creatures when he encounters Jacob, a No-Maj (that’s American for Muggle), who accidentally lets some of Newt’s creatures loose in the city.

Together with their new friends Queenie (Alison Sudol) and Tina (Katherine Waterston), Newt and Jacob (Dan Fogler) must try to save Newt’s beasts – while also saving the magic community – all while being pursued as fugitives. Jeez, can’t a wizard catch a break?

The best part? This is just the first of five Harry Potter spin-off flicks!

Here’s five fun facts about the film —>
