Self-proclaimed famous magizoologist and textbook author Newt Scamander faces challenges in the no-maj and wizarding world as befriended creatures from his briefcase are accidentally let loose. The film's remarkable trailers have delivered intriguing sneak peeks of the mysterious animals that will fly, crawl, and squirm their way across the big screen. What beasts will be taking over New York City in the 1920s? Here are five majestic critters we can expect to see in Scamander's film debut!
Now we'll see just what Hogwart's gatekeeper was talking about! Bowtruckles are woodland creatures growing no taller than eight inches and protect trees that wands are made of. These are particularly rare species in native Scandinavia but Scamander actually finds four, one of which named Pickett comes with him to America. His name may actually be a wider clue into bowtruckles as theeir long sharp fingers come in very handy for picking locks! But don't let this clever skill fool you - they are delicate and shy creatures who are very loyal.
