Meet the heroes of ‘Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them’ in this behind-the-scenes featurette


During Universal Orlando’s A Celebration of Harry Potter event over the weekend, Warner Bros revealed a behind-the-scenes video introducing Newt Scamander (Eddie Redmayne), sisters Tina (Katherine Waterston) and Queenie (Alison Sudol) Goldstein, and “No-Maj” Jacob Kowalski (Dan Fogler).

“All four central characters are outsiders,” producer David Heyman explains. “Part of the journey of this, for each of them, is coming into themselves.”

Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them marks the screenwriting debut of J.K. Rowling. Her script was inspired by the Hogwarts textbook Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them, written by her character Newt Scamander. The film follows Newt Scamander who has just completed a global excursion to find and document an extraordinary array of magical creatures. However, an encounter with a No-Maj (American for Muggle) named Jacob, a misplaced magical case, and the escape of some of Newt’s fantastic beasts could spell trouble for both the wizarding and No-Maj worlds.
