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.
Newt's gray and yellow scarf that he wears in the film's last scene, as well as in promotional materials, is an allusion to the fact that he was in Hufflepuff while attending Hogwarts (a fact that J.K. Rowling has confirmed in supplemental materials).
Dougal, you settle down now, please. It won't be long.
When Newt first goes to the sisters' apartment, a record of Ruth Etting singing "You're the Cream in My Coffee" is playing. However, this song was not published until 1928, and Etting didn't record it until 1929---though the film is set in 1926.
An occamy slithers into the film title to form the S in "Beasts".
