Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them is a fantasy action/adventure movie tie-in to J.K. Rowling’s Harry Potter universe, distributed by Warner Bros pictures in 2016. It shares a title with one of Harry Potter’s textbooks in the Harry Potter series, written by Newt Scamander. And it has also been published as a standalone book by J.K. Rowling in 2001.
The Harry Potter movie series is almost complete. Just one more movie to go after this one, which will cover the second half of the 7th and final book in the series. If you haven’t read/seen the first six in the series, then you really ought to stop now–there’s no way to discuss this without major SPOILERS to the earlier books.
