The film will bring to life J. K Rowling’s 2001 book, which was itself a spin-off from the Harry Potter series, purporting to be a textbook issued to students at Hogwarts.

Oscar-winner Redmayne plays Newt Scamander, author of the textbook.

The film is due to be released in the UK on November 18 this year.
