Warner Bros. Pictures has released a Behind the Scenes look at the much-anticipated adventure Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them, which you can check out below.
Academy Award winner Eddie Redmayne (“The Theory of Everything”) stars in the central role of wizarding world magizoologist Newt Scamander, under the direction of David Yates, who helmed the last four “Harry Potter” blockbusters.
