WB Releases Official Version of “Fantastic Beasts” Plot Synopsis

It’s been a little over a month since Entertainment Weekly revealed the basic plot of Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them, and with the announcement trailer for the film coming in just a few days, WB released its own official wording of what we can expect from the movie.

Although it’s nothing we don’t already know, it’s interesting to see the official take on Fantastic Beasts‘s plot:

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.

Most exciting, of course, is that the coming days are sure to be filled with Warner Bros. finally giving fans some insight into the film! Stay tuned to MuggleNet for all the latest updates!
