The first trailer for FANTASTIC BEASTS AND WHERE TO FIND THEM is officially here!
It is the year 1926. Magizoologist Newt Scamander (Oscar-winner Eddie Redmayne) has just completed a global excursion to research and document an extraordinary array of magical creatures. Arriving in New York for a brief stopover, some of his captured creatures manage to escape, wreaking havoc in the city which could only spell trouble for both the wizarding and No-Maj worlds.
Penned by JK Rowling herself and directed by David Yates, the story takes place several decades before the time of ‘Harry Potter‘. Since it is a prequel to the Harry Potter films, Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them will showcase a rare insight into the unexplored areas of Rowling’s magical universe. And while the teaser trailer doesn’t spill much, we’re already expecting huge things from Eddie Redmayne as he appears to fit right into the wizarding world.
The Harry Potter franchise may have ended years ago but that doesn’t mean it will stop fans from being excited about this film. Let us know what you think of the trailer in the comments below!
