Expanding on Harry Potter's world by digging into a spin-off tome J.K. Rowling created about various magical creatures and the globe-trotting magizoologist who studies them, Fantastic Beasts reunites several of the key Potter film behind the scenes players including director David Yates and Rowling herself, who wrote the script this time.
Newt's travels are recorded 70 years before Harry tackles Voldemort, in 1926, and major on his time in New York, where the city is soon ransacked by some of the beasties he carries with him in his bottomless bag.
And that isn't helped by the fact that America's Muggles, the No-Maj, aren't exactly trusting when it comes to witches and wizards, with the fires of suspicion stirred by dark forces, represented here by Colin Farrell's investigator, Percival Graves.
The cast around Redmayne and Farrell includes Katherine Waterston, Samantha Morton, Carmen Ejogo, Alison Sudol, Dan Fogler, Ron Perlman and Jon Voight, and we're told to expect an announcement of something new at VidCon, which starts this week.
