And fans will be given a first-hand view of the Q&A session no matter where they are in the world, in the video above!

The global celebration will kick off on Thursday, October 13 from 8.30pm.

The film, which is set prior to the events of the Harry Potter series in 1920's New York City, follows magizoologist Newt Scamander (played by Eddie Redmayne) after he accidentally releases a host of magical creatures and attempts to round them up before they wreak havoc in the city.

Described as an outsider and "a bit awkward", Newt was once a student at Hogwarts but was expelled for endangering human life with a beast.

It has already been announced that a second movie is already in the works. A brief synopsis for the darker sequel was recently released: "The second Fantastic Beasts movie moves deeper into an increasingly dark time for the wizarding world, where Newt and our other heroes have to decide on their allegiances."
