Is a secret Harry Potter and the Cursed Child...

For any muggles out there, Fantastic Beasts is a movie that will follow author Newt Scamander (Eddie Redmayne) after he has a bit of a bad day at work and accidentally releases loads of magical creatures in New York. 

The Cursed Child is a play set nineteen years after The Deathly Hallows Pt II, and is absolutely NOT a prequel.

So there.
