However, “Harry Potter” does not end there. Both parts of the film series “Fantastic Beasts” will also be released on Netflix from next month.

At the same time, however, unusual incidents are occurring in the city. And when Newt’s animals are blamed for this, the magician realizes that there is something much dark and powerful behind it. This creature itself and the entire world is threatened with a great disaster, which Newt tries to prevent.
