Potterheads: A Show About ‘Fantastic Beasts’ Is Coming To BBC One

Stephen Fry is signed on to take part in the show.


A new Fantastic Beasts documentary will soon be coming to BBC One, and will be presented by none other than Stephen Fry himself.

The documentary will look into the magnificent creatures created for the Harry Potter spin-off, and will examine JK Rowling and her ability to create such a diverse and interesting mythical creatures.

The series will also look at some of the most interesting animals that currently reside in the world, but would easily fit into a film like Fantastic Beasts due to their unusual and magical nature.

The documentary is a collaboration between the BBC, Warner Bros and London’s Natural History Museum, and accompanies a blockbuster exhibition at LNHM titled¬†Fantastic Beasts: The Wonder of Nature.

“We want to show people that the natural world is just as amazing as the mythical, wizarding world,” said Clare Matterson, executive director of engagement at the Natural History Museum.

Stephen Fry said: “I could not be more delighted to be a part of this magnificent opportunity for us Muggles to show the wizarding world that the fantastic beasts in our world are more than a match for theirs.

“Joining forces with the combined powers of the fabulous BBC, its legendary Natural History Unit and the magical Natural History Museum we hope to be able to bring you closer than you’ve ever been to some of the most spectacular and extraordinary creatures ever seen.”

There currently isn’t a release date for the exciting new documentary, but it’s bound to be a hit with Potter fans.
