Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them is one of the franchises featured in LEGO Dimensions. It is based on the upcoming film of the same name, which a spinoff of the Harry Potter film series. The title itself is taken from a fictional textbook in the Harry Potter universe that details a large number of the mythical creatures in the Wizarding World.
The year is 1926, and 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.
