Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them, the spin-off and prequel to the Harry Potter movies, will be accompanied by a hidden objects mobile game inspired by J.K. Rowling’s wizarding world. The game will be released in November, same as the movie, but it will be released a day before the movie.

Speaking about movies that are going to be released in November, I have to bring up the DreamWorks Animation’s 'Trolls' movie. It too is getting an accompanying mobile game. Strike that, the Trolls game is already here.

The action in the Fantastic Beasts movie takes places in 1926, 70 years before the Harry Potter Saga. The movie’s protagonist is Newt Scamander, an unregistered wizard that let magical creatures loose in New York. These beasts must be recovered before they come to harm, which is easier said than done, especially when there are dark forces at play.



Fantastic Beasts, a movie written and produced by J.K. Rowling, stars Academy Award winner Eddie Redmayne, Colin Farrell, Ron Perlman, Dan Fogler, Katherine Waterston, Alison Sudol, Ezra Miller, Samantha Morton, Gemma Chan, and Jon Voight. It’s scheduled to be released on November 18.

One day before the movie’s theatrical release, on November 17, Warner Bros. will roll out a free-to-play hidden objects game called Fantastic Beasts: Cases From The Wizarding World. Available for iOS and Android, the game will let you delve into the wizarding world as a new recruit for the Ministry of Magic. Your task is to investigate unexplained happenings by discovering hidden objects, analyzing evidence, casting spells and brewing potions. Every case has a magical creature at its center and it’s up to you to uncover and protect these creatures.



"We are delighted to bring fans a new mobile game inspired by J.K. Rowling’s Wizarding World, which invites players to discover their own fantastic beasts," said David Haddad, President, Warner Bros. Interactive Entertainment. "Fantastic Beasts: Cases From The Wizarding World offers a fun, magical mobile experience to all players."

Switching to less serious movies, DreamWorks’ Trolls animated feature film is "a smart, funny and irreverent comedy about the search for happiness, and just how far some will go to get it." The main protagonist is Poppy, the extremely happy and optimistic troll princess. After the comically pessimistic Bergens invade Troll Village, Poppy must team up with the overly-cautious and grouchy Branch and set off on an adventure to rescue their friends.



Trolls stars the voices of Anna Kendrick, Justin Timberlake, Zooey Deschanel, Russell Brand, James Corden, and Gwen Stefani. It’s scheduled to be released on November 4.

Accompanying the Trolls movie is Ubisoft’s free-to-play mobile game Trolls: Crazy Party Forest, available right now for iOS and Android.

Before you go get the game, take a look at its main features:
  • Build your own Troll village: Customize your happy village, grow and farm fantastical crops and goodies including colorful lollipops, sour strip candies and oversized berries. Enhance your forest with quirky critters that produce whimsical treats and hair products for the Trolls. Plus, unlock cozy new pod homes in various shapes and fun designs!
  • Collect and interact with movie Trolls & beyond!: Complete unique Troll families with your favorite Trolls from the film – Poppy, Branch, Guy Diamond, DJ Suki and more! Care for each individual Troll and level-up their incredible talents in dancing, DJing, yoga and more!
  • Throw awesome themed parties to attract new Trolls: Host the best parties around from events like bouncing beats, put your hair in the air, heat wave pool party and many more! Play exciting mini-games and impress your party guests to join your village!
  • Play and party with friends: Invite your friends and visit their party forest to receive daily rewards. Hire special guests from your friend’s Troll collection to amp up your crazy parties and share your prized in-game achievements with the whole Troll village!


"Our team has been incredibly enthused to work with DreamWorks Animation on such an entertaining property," said Jean-Michel Detoc, executive director at Ubisoft Mobile Games. "We wanted to create a gaming experience that would immerse audiences into a colorful vibrant world where Troll happiness keeps the village alive, and feels entirely authentic to the IP. Each aspect of the game has been designed for players to enjoy ‘Trolltastic’ elements from crazy hair, amazing Troll talents and many possibilities to host unique themed-parties!"
