Fantastic Beasts Posters

Fantastic Beasts and Where To Find Them is a 2016 fantasy/action film and the screenwriting debut of J.K Rowling and is inspired by the books of the same name and serves as a prequel to the hugely popular Harry Potter series which was also penned by Rowling. Despite the obvious link between the two franchises, Rowling was keen to stress the importance of Fantastic Beasts being a seperate entity from the Harry Potter series. Set in 1920s New York the film follows the story of Newt Scamander, an employee at the British Ministry of Magic who accidentaly releases a number of Fantastic Beasts from a briefcase during a meeting in America. Filming was predominantly done at Warner Bros. Studios, Leavesden whilst scenes were also shot in London where the crew was covered the locations with fake snow and placed classic cars on the road to transform the scenes into 1920s New York.
