J.K. Rowling's Fantastic Beast and Where to Find Them is scurrying into the home video market, and the crazy period piece directed by Harry Potter's David Yates is busting with bonus features and extras to explore.
I loved this Potterverse adventure set during the Roaring Twenties, and I can't wait to dive into the deep well of magical interviews, BTS stills, audio commentaries, trailers, documentaries and deleted scenes.
Its theatrical release was only slightly less than stellar, conjuring up a worldwide box-office total of $809 million and assuring that we'll be seeing the four additional planned sequels set to span a period of 19 years.
Starring Eddie Redmayne, Katherine Waterston, Dan Fogler, Alison Sudol, Ezra Miller, Samantha Morton, Jon Voight and Colin Farrell, Fantastic Beasts appears on Digital HD on March 13, followed by Blu-ray 3D, Ultra HD Blu-ray, Blu-ray and good ol' DVD on March 28.
Check out the official release trailer below and let us know if you're enchanted by what you see.
Here's the roster of bonus goodies includued from Warner Bros. Home Entertainment:
