The film takes place in early December 1926, which is only a couple of weeks before Voldemort, the main antagonist of the Harry Potter films, was born in the books (December 31, 1926). Whether this is also his date of birth in the movies is unclear, since the timeline in the movies has been altered somewhat from the books.
Dougal... settle down now, please.
Newt Scamander: It won't be long.
In Mary Lou Barebone's initial speech at the protest rally, she refers to "the wireless" as one of the marvels of modern technology. That is the British term; a speaker in New York City in 1926 would have said "the radio."
An occamy slithers into the film title to form the S in "Beasts".
