Everything We Know About FANTASTIC BEASTS AND WHERE TO FIND THEM

Has someone placed an Engorgio spell on JK Rowling‘s world of wizarding and magic? ‘Cuz it’s about to get a whole lot bigger–with the addition of 2016’s Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them, the first in a trilogy of movies that will explore the life and times of Newt Scamander, author of the Hogwarts textbook of the same name.

The film will star Eddie Redmayne as the magizoologist Scamander, and it has just been announced that Katherine Waterston will play opposite Redmayne as the witch Porpentina (a.k.a. Tina). Little is known of the plot of the film, but that isn’t stopping some fans from developing their own theories.

Join host Jessica Chobot as we give you the scoop on the newest extension of the Harry Potter universe and theorize what secrets Newt Scamander may have in store for us on today’s Nerdist News!
