Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them is one of the many franchises featured in LEGO Dimensions for Year 2. It is based on the film of the same name, which a prequel 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.
