PG-13 | | Adventure, Family, Fantasy
The adventures of writer Newt Scamander in New York's secret community of witches and wizards seventy years before Harry Potter reads his book in school.
Eddie Redmayne has admitted that accidentally flunking the audition for the role of Kylo Ren in Star Wars: The Force Awakens (2015) allowed him to get picked for the role of Newt, although he was not aware that he was the studio's only choice for the latter.
Dougal, you settle down now, please. It won't be long.
When Newt is preparing to leave the ship at the beginning of the movie, an overhead shot shows a crowd of muddy footprints on the deck in front of him. All of these footprints seem to be from shoes with rubber treads, but such treads were not available until the late 1930s for mountain climbers and much later for everyday shoes. In the 1920s, all shoes would have had flat leather soles.
An occamy slithers into the film title to form the S in "Beasts".
