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 he didn't do well at the audition for the role of Kylo Ren in Star Wars: The Force Awakens (2015), and this freed him up for the role of Newt, although he was not aware that he was the studio's only choice for the latter.
Dougal... settle down now, please.
Newt Scamander: It won't be long.
Every man in the movie wears a hat when outdoors (common dress for 1926), except for the three chief male characters - Newt Scamander, Jacob Kowalski, and Percival Graves, who never ever do. This is very uncommon for the year in which the film is set. However, Newt and Graves are magic, while Jacob is a social misfit.
An occamy slithers into the film title to form the S in "Beasts".
