Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them is a movie that we have been talking about all year and will return audiences to J.K. Rowling's world of wizards and magic.
Yes, Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them is already one of the most anticipated films of the year and the early trailers are promising another exciting adventure.
The movie is based on the book of the same name by Rowling and the author herself has turned her hand to screenwriting for the first time; I cannot wait to see her make that leap into writing for film.
Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them marks the return of David Yates to the director's chair for his second feature of the year; he has already enjoyed success this summer with The Legend of Tarzan.
Yates is no stranger to the work of Rowling as he directed four Harry Potter films, including Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows Part 1 and Part 2.
Eddie Redmayne is one of the most exciting and in-demand actors and he is set to take on the central role of magician Newt Scamander. We have seen Redmayne deliver wonderful performances in The Theory of Everything and The Danish Girl in recent years and it is fab to see him make the leap into the blockbuster genre.
We have not seen Redmayne tackle too many blockbuster films during his career and this will certainly be one of the biggest movies he has starred in to date. This movie could very well be the start of another hugely successful franchise.
However, it is not all about Redmayne as the director has brought together a fantastic cast list with Ezra Miller, Colin Farrell, Zoe Kravitz, Ron Perlman, Jon Voight, Katherine Waterston, Samantha Morton, Carmen Ejogo, and Dan Fogler also on board.
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.
This is one of the autumn movies that I am looking forward to the most and I cannot wait to see Redmayne lead this very impressive and talented cast.
Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them is released 18th November.
