While we knew a little about the movie and its characters from the trailer, we haven't learned much about the plot so far.

We know already that Jacob is a Muggle who ends up going along on Newt's adventures in New York. And now we know why:

(Looks like it was opened more than ~just a smidge~.)

This interview is actually a gold mine disguised as a 1:50 YouTube video.

We also learn:

-Jacob is a baker who just came back from the war.

-Newt is a "Charles Darwin-y kind of character".

-The film series is about Newt "writing his book".

-Newt originally goes to New York only to "buy a gift". (???????)

-Jacob is bitten by a creature in Newt's case, and Newt has to try to "heal" Jacob while also catching all the released beasts, which is why Jacob joins Newt's journey.

-Newt is closer with animals than he is with humans.

-Newt and Jacob end up being friends, "kind of like Sherlock and Watson".
