Have you ever wondered what a BBC wildlife documentary would look like if instead of Lions and Tigers it featured a ton of creatures from the Harry Potter Universe? Well, wonder no more, dear Potterheads, because you’re about to find out.
According to the Beeb themselves, the Natural History Museum will be joining forces with Warner Bros and the BBC to create the first-ever nature documentary focusing completely on the magical world of J.K. Rowling’s Fantastic Beasts, featuring narration by Stephen Fry.
The idea behind the project is to illustrate just how closely the real world and the wizarding world actually intertwine, by comparing the amazing creatures from Rowling’s mind and the fantastic beasts of reality.
The project is currently working under the name Fantastic Beasts: A Natural History, and coincides with the NHM’s upcoming exhibition, which opens in Spring 2020. You can pre-order tickets for that here.
We’ll have more details on the TV special as details are announced.
