Watch the Fantastic Beasts Cast Explain the Magic Behind the Film

J.K. Rowling has done it again

Harry Potter fans can’t wait to return to J.K. Rowling’s wizarding world with Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them — and the cast can’t wait for people to see.

A new featurette goes behind the scenes of the adventure film, which will be Rowling’s first screenplay. Oscar-winner Eddie Redmayne is absorbed by the story. “This world, it’s been a wonder,” he says. “It’s just unlike anything I’ve ever been a part of.”

The crew behind the camera can’t stop raving about Rowling’s first foray into film. “It’s this vivid, lively, beautiful word that Jo has created,” producer David Heyman says.

See the clip above and learn more about the characters and setting: 1926 New York City.

Fantastic Beasts arrives Nov. 18. Revisit EW’s excusive cover story and coverage here.
