This is going to be huge.

Many of you might not have stumbled upon the whole Harry Potter phenomenon that apparently was and still is ridiculously successful in both book and movie form and if you missed it, there’s a chance to start afresh later this year.

Fantastic Beasts and where to find them (or Fantastic Beasts for short) will be released in cinemas in November, documenting the tale of Newt Scamander, a British writer and wizard prodigy, and his adventures in New York.

Eddie Redmayne and our own Colin Farrell lead a stellar cast in the first of a trilogy that, if it enjoys even a tiny portion of the success of Harry Potter, will be a huge hit indeed.

Fantastic Beasts will be released in Irish cinemas on 18 November.
