Newt Scamander Stars in a Draw My Life Video

By Maryann Yin 

The creatives behind the Draw My Life YouTube channel have created a video on Newt Scamander. The video embedded above features a biography on the famed magical zoologist.

J.K. Rowling, a beloved author and the screenwriter behind the Fantastic Beasts film series, first mentioned this character in the Harry Potter book series. For Harry Potter and his fellow students at Hogwarts, Newt Scamander was known as the writer of a textbook entitled Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them.

Newt Scamander, played by Eddie Redmayne, made his silver screen debut in the recently released Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them movie.
