The MPAA merely states it is rated thusly “for some fantasy action violence.(via)

You might’ve heard of this tiny indie picture, Harry Potter, about wizards and magic, although it’s a little niche, and kinda under the radar — just kidding. Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them is the first spinoff of one of the biggest franchises of all time. Eddie Redmayne plays Newt Scamander, a put-upon British wizard whose trunkful of magical creatures escape into the streets of 1920s New York City, and his new friends Tina (Katharine Waterston) and Jacob (Dan Fogler) have to help him find them all before they spark a war between wizards and Muggles. The creatures look, well, fantastic, and the Gatsby-era atmosphere is wonderfully palpable, with a lighted sign advertising arrow collars in the background of one shot. If the rabid fan response to Rowling’s Harry Potter and the Cursed Child stage play is any indication, there’s a good chance Fantastic Beasts could be the biggest movie of the fall.
