Entertainment Weekly has dug up the latest scoop on the Harry Potter prequel, 'Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them,' and the magazine shares interesting facts and tidbits in its latest issue.

The Harry Potter Prequel film stars Academy Award Winning Actor, Eddie Redmayne, as Newt Scamander. In the magical world, Scamander is the known author of 'Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them,' a textbook for students at Hogwarts.

Unlike the rest of the Potter stories, this one takes place in America. New Scamander interacts with American witches and wizards in New York, City in 1926.

What else did I learn from this issue of Entertainement Weekly? 'Muggle' is apparently a British word, and Americans witches and wizards have their own nickname for non-magical people. You and I, assuming you're not in fact a witch or wizard - and that you are American, would be known as "No-Maj."

From the look of the cover photo below, the film appears that it will indeed be magical!
