We all have a beast inside, so take our Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them quiz to discover your inner creature!

Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them kicks off a grand story of magical conflict, political intrigue, and unexpected friendship… plus a little emotional abuse on the side. It’s epic, historic, human, and of course, surprising in all the right places.

Thanks to Newt Scamander’s badly-locked suitcase, we’ve fallen in love with the Wizarding World all over again. But for all of the tantalizing story seeds planted in J.K. Rowling’s first foray into screenwriting, the fantastic beasts are the real star of the show. Within that (shockingly roomy) valise, the sprawling menagerie of magical fauna brings a new dimension of the Wizarding World to life.

From the adorably maddening Niffler to the awe-inspiring Thunderbird, the creatures of Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them represent the best of J.K. Rowling’s innovation and creativity. There’s something resonant and lovable about every creature in Newt’s case. Even the Swooping Evil as a soft side!

Don’t believe us? Take our quiz and find out which fantastic beast you are! (You won’t be able to guess… unless, of course, you happen to be a Demiguise.)

Let us know! Which fantastic beast are you?
