The film is set in the year 1926 and first of a planned trilogy which focuses on Newt Scamander played by Oscar® winning actor Eddie Redmayne and his adventures in New York. In the Harry Potter Universe, Newt is known as the author of the well known text book in Magizoology (study of magical creatures) which servers an encyclopedia of magical creatures.

Read the official plot synopsis below :
Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them opens in 1926 as Newt Scamander has just completed a global excursion to find and document an extraordinary array of magical creatures. Arriving in New York for a brief stopover, he might have come and gone without incident…were it not for a No-Maj (American for Muggle) named Jacob, a misplaced magical case, and the escape of some of Newt’s fantastic beasts, which could spell trouble for both the wizarding and No-Maj worlds.
