The latest film based on J K Rowling’s Harry Potter universe, Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them, features many incredible creatures, a number of which were created by visual effects studios MPC, Framestore and Rodeo FX.

The film follows the narrative of Magizoologist and writer Newt Scamander (played by Eddie Redmayne) on an expedition to New York City in 1926, carrying endangered creatures inside a special suitcase.
