Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them is a British-American fantasy drama film inspired by the book of the same name by J. K. Rowling. 

Directed by David Yates with Rowling in her screenwriting debut, the film follows the adventures of Magizoologist Newt Scamander as he encounters and battles a strange dark magical force terrorising New York. Wayne McGregor was the movement coach on the film, working closely with actor Ezra Miller on the musicality for his character Credence, and building the magical being of the Obscurus with physical action through motion-capture technology.

Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them was filmed at Warner Bros. Studios Leavesden, which was home to the Harry Potter films for a decade, with some scenes shot on location in Liverpool, England. The film was released in cinemas worldwide in November 2016 through Warner Bros. Pictures, and is now available on DVD, Blu-ray and streaming platforms.
