A Guide to Fantastic Beasts’ Creatures (and Where to Find Them!)

With a title like Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them, one would expect to see a variety of odd and magical creatures the likes of which you’ve never seen, and you’d be right. Below, you’ll find a comprehensive list of all the beasts that will be found in the film featuring information from our visit to the set of the film last year and information from J.K. Rowling’s mini “text book” of Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them, first published in 2001. Check it out 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.

The film stars Eddie Redmayne, Katherine Waterston, Alison Sudol, Ezra Miller, Dan Fogler, Colin Farrell, Jenn Murray, Jon Voight, Carmen EjogoGemma Chan and newcomer Faith Wood-Blagrove. It was also revealed recently that Johnny Depp will have a small role in the film leading to a bigger role in the second film.
