Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them 700x90

The sasquatch, also known as big foot, was a magical creature native to the Pacific Northwest region of North America.[1]

In 1892, sasquatches staged a large-scale rebellion against the Magical Congress of the United States of America, forcing the government to relocate from Washington to New York.[1] This event was covered in detail in Ortiz O'Flaherty's book Big Foot's Last Stand.[1] While the precursors to and rationale for the rebellion are unknown, it should be noted that the mere presence of sasquatch in No-Maj areas would have been deemed "intolerable" by the Magical Congress of the United States of America due to the "risk" such a presence would pose in exposing the magical world.[1]

Behind the scenes

  • The sasquatch (also known as bigfoot) is a real-life cryptid.[2] It said to be a large, bipedal, ape-like creature covered in shaggy brown hair, which inhabits forested regions of North America, particularly in the Pacific Northwest.[2] The creature has its origins in the mythology of the indigenous peoples of the region.[2]
  • A sasquatch was planned to appear in the first film adaptation of Fantastic Beasts and where to Find Them, played through motion-capture by Jason Newell, but he was let go from the film.
