Hogwarts old boy Newt Scamander (Eddie Redmayne) heads to Prohibition-era New York with a bottomless suitcase full of banned magical beasts. However, unaware of the rising tension between the secret world of US wizards and a fanatical faction of No-Majs (American for Muggles) bent on eradicating them, he finds himself in the middle of a war. It doesn't help that his caseful of creatures keeps escaping into the city. This historical chapter in Harry Potter's wizarding world compellingly explores a new dimension in an adventure that's pure magic.
