Stephen Fry, who famously narrated the Bloomsbury (United Kingdom) Harry Potter audiobooks, will embark on a fantastical journey across the world in this upcoming BBC One special, entitled Fantastic Beasts: A Natural History.

In a unique collaboration with the BBC Natural History Unit, the Natural History Museum (who helmed the exhibition, Fantastic Beasts: The Wonder of Nature) and Warner Bros., expect this documentary to unfurl all sorts of mysteries around fantastic beasts and real-life creatures across history that you may not believe could possibly exist.

It is important to note that Stephen Fry will chat to the Wizarding World’s creator, J.K. Rowling, to discuss the inspirations behind the creatures we meet in Harry Potter and Fantastic Beasts, while also meeting with visual effects supervisor Christian Manz, who has lent his talents to several Wizarding World movies, bringing countless magical creations to life.

Fantastic Beasts: A Natural History will feature on BBC One, iPlayer and international broadcasters very soon.
