Oscar winner Eddie Redmayne stars in the film that needs no introduction, in this first prequel to Harry Potter.


The year is 1926 and Newt Scamander (Redmayne) 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 (Dan Fogler, Kung Fu Panda), 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.


Come catch this fantastical feast for the eyes co-starring a host of famous faces from Colin Farrell to Samantha Morton, Zoë Kravitz and Johnny Depp under the stars!


“Whether you're a Potterhead or not, Beasts creates a story that's both original and enchanting.” – USA Today
