The full trailer for the film was recently unveiled and it promises to mesmerise fans with its display of continued magic and mysticism.
Redmayne stars as Newt Scamander, a magizoologist who wreaks havoc on 1920s New York City when he releases a case full of his magical creatures.
The American wizarding authorities subsequently pursue the Brit as his collection of dangerous creatures and their habitats roam the metropolis.
His error drives a deeper wedge between the city's magical and non-magical communities as Newt races to correct his error.
Producers recently announced that work on a darker sequel to the David Yates-directed film is under way - before the new story has even hit the screens.

The first instalment in the Harry Potter spin-off, which also stars Katherine Waterston and Ezra Miller, is out on November 18 and will be JK Rowling's screenwriting debut.
The sequel will see her continue her long association with film-maker David, whose previous directorial credits include Harry Potter films Order Of The Phoenix, Half Blood Prince, and Deathly Hallows parts one and two.
Based on her 2001 novel by the same name, the story follows Newt on a mission to catalogue otherworldy creatures in New York.

Warner Bros said the second outing for Eddie's character will also be penned by the author and is expected to have a 'darker edge'.
However, fans will have to wait for two years before the sequel reaches cinemas on November 16, 2018.
Ahead of San Diego's Comic-Con event this summer, David teased that a familiar character from the Harry Potter stories will return in Fantastic Beasts.

'There is a mention of some characters that we know and love from previous movies, but we only talk about them fleetingly,' he told Reuters.
'In the next movie, part two, we'll get to meet one of them in a significant way. He's much younger than he used to be, but he'll be coming back.'
In June, David said JK Rowling already had ideas for the third Fantastic Beasts film and said he relished not having to adapt the new stories from books.

'When we adapted the books, we'd always have to leave out things you hated leaving out because they didn't quite work in the structure of the storytelling for the movie.'
The prospect of a burgeoning Fantastic Beasts franchise to follow the eight-part Harry Potter series should greatly boost JK's colossal earnings.
With an estimated £580 million fortune, she made £14.2 million in the past year that saw the opening of her two-part West End debut, Harry Potter And The Cursed Child.
Fantastic Beasts And Where To Find Them is set to hit screens on November 18.
