David Yates has two movies coming in 2016. The first is “The Legend Of Tarzan,” and after watching the first trailer, we know that the director has nowhere to go but up. And it really doesn’t get much bigger than “Fantastic Beasts And Where To Find Them,” which finds J.K. Rowling and Warner Bros. revisiting the “Harry Potter” franchise but from a whole new angle.
Starring Eddie Redmayne, Katherine Waterston, Alison Sudol, Dan Fogler, Ezra Miller, Samantha Morton, Jenn Murray, Faith Wood-Blagrove, and Colin Farrell, the film is an expansion of the titular book, with a story takes place many, many years before Harry Potter first pops onto the scene, telling the adventures of “magizoologist” Newt Scamander. Here’s the official synopsis:
“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.
“Fantastic Beasts And Where To Find Them” opens on November 18, 2016. Watch the first trailer below.
