Shooting for the “Fantastic Beasts And Where To Find Them” is underway, with its producers Lionel Wigram, David Heyman and Steve Kloves. While David Yates is directing the movie, JK Rowling has written the screenplay. Yates has been associated with each part of the movie since “The Order Of The Phoenix.”
Newt Scamander will be the lead role in the movie being played by Eddie Redmayne, a magizoologist who will be on a mission to document peculiar creatures of the magical world.

This news has no doubt excited the fans, but it will be amazing to see what more Rowling still has to give her diehard fans. And can the movie quench the thirst of the true Harry Potter fans?
“Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them” is expected to hit the big screen worldwide on November 18, 2016.
