VIDEO: Fantastic Beasts behind the scenes

This new video goes behind the scenes on Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them - a return to the world of Harry Potter

It's already a given that Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them will be a massive hit, as it's bringing us back to the wizarding world of Harry Potter with an all new story full of fantastical creatures. And now we have an idea of how it was all put together.

This new behind the scenes featurette includes interviews with the main cast including Eddie Redmayne as well as returning director David Yates, who helmed four of the eight Potter movies. Check out the video below.

The idea of having a new take on this universe it pretty exciting, especially when it concerns more grown up characters and a totally different period setting. The cast is also pretty great, with an Oscar winner in Redmayne and support from the likes of Colin Farrell, Ron Perlman, Ezra Miller, Gemma Chan and the excellent Katherine Waterston. What's more, J.K. Rowling also crafted the script with her first ever screenplay, based on a book which was references in the original Harry Potter tomes.

See it in cinemas in November 2016.
