If you're a J.K. Rowling/Harry Potter aficionado, you must've seen J.K. Rowling's latest big screen masterpiece, "Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them." But just in case you missed it, great news because it's already out on Blu-Ray and DVD to come Tuesday.

For those who loved all the bugs and beasts featured in the film, get to know more about some of them and what makes them so fascinating for kids and kids at heart. From the stingy Billywig to the jaw-dropping thunderbird, fans were surely filled with joy and wonder as they followed the magical story of Newt Scamander in "Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them."

Billywig, Bowtruckle, Demiguise

The Billywig drove Newt Scamander nuts when he tried catching it. One wouldn't notice it's there until they're stung by it! But once you start levitating and feeling giddy, you'll have a pretty good idea what got you, per Hollywood Reporter. On the other hand, some fans can't help but be reminded of Baby Groot from "Guardians of the Galaxy" with Bowtruckles. In "Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them", Newt has one which he has named Pickett. They're generally peace-loving creatures but could get pretty nasty when you're not nice to them. Then there's Demiguise who can only be seen by the most powerful witches and wizards. They have the ability to predict the future and turn invisible whenever they want to.

"Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them" follows the story of Newt Scamander played by Eddie Redmayne. He hails from U.K.'s Ministry of Magic and is a Magizoologist. He went to the United States in 1926 so he could return a Thunderbird he rescued from Arizona. Unfortunately, his first day in NYC didn't turn out as smoothly as he had hoped for. Some of the magical creatures in his suitcase managed to escape creating havoc in their path. This is the beginning of Newt's misadventures as he discovers an even darker mystery roaming the streets of New York City, per The Digital Bits.

Good thing for "Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them" viewers, they could now enjoy it on Blu-Ray and DVD right at the comfort of their own homes. For more of the latest Hollywood news and tidbits, keep it here on Celebeat. Hit us with your feedback in the comments below.
