Though we have to wait a while (“a while” as in 11 months) to see Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them on the big screen, we at least no longer have to wait to get our first look at the Harry Potter spin-off from ‘Potter’ author J.K. Rowling and Potter director David Yates. That said, this is only a brief announcement trailer, then again, a little footage from the film is better than none, right? Check out the trailer below!
Eccentric magizoologist Newt Scamander (Eddie Redmayne) comes to New York with his trusty weathered case. This case is one of those way-way-way-bigger-on-the-inside magical devices, and within are expansive habitats for a collection of rare and endangered magical creatures from Newt’s travels around globe. He discovers the American wizarding community is fearfully hiding from Muggles and the threat of public exposure is an even graver concern than in the UK. ‘Fantastic Beasts’ is the story of what happens when this uniquely skilled English wizard travels to wiz-phobic America and a variety of his creatures, some quite dangerous … get out of their case.
Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them will hit theaters on November 18, 2016.
