Incognisant of strained moments in the city, Newt Scamander arrives in the city nearing the end of a global excursion to research and rescue magical creatures, some of which are safeguarded in the magical hidden dimensions of his deceptively nondescript leather case. It was only earlier this year when the trailers of Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them released that fans from all over the world found another reason to look forward to the year 2016. What is the film all about? The only place Potterheads found solace was in the pages of the old books and on the site Pottermore. A mysterious something has destroyed parts of the city that leads to a lot of tension between wizards and No-Majs (American for Muggles). Set in 1926 in New York, Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them takes us to a new era of J.K. Although the film does not have any of the iconic cast members — Daniel Radcliffe, Emma Watson, Rupert Grint and Tom Felton — the film features Oscar-winning actor Eddie Redmayne, Colin Farrell, Katherine Waterston, Dan Fogler and Ezra Miller. Who’s behind the making of the film? Amidst this, a dark wizard Gellert Grindelwald, after wreaking havoc in Europe, has slipped away and is now nowhere to be found. Written by Samarpita Das
