A fantasy movie set in the Harry Potter universe written by J.K. Rowling
Inspired by Harry Potter’s Hogwarts textbook of the same name, Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them revolves around the book's fictitious author, Newt Scamander and his dangerous adventures.
Harry Potter author J.K. Rowling gives her screenwriting debut with Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them. Taking place around seventy years before Harry Potter joins Hogwarts, Rowling has stated that the fantasy movie is neither a sequel nor prequel to the Harry Potter franchise. Instead, Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them offers a history of the wizard world that was unseen by Harry Potter and his friends.
