Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them heads to theaters in November, and today a magical new trailer was released at Comic-Con! So far, this is the best trailer we’ve seen as it shows several of the magical creatures and has a very similar feel to the Harry Potter films we’ve all come to know and love.
In the new Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them trailer we get to see Newt Scamander (played by the incredibly talented Eddie Redmayne) attempt to hunt down his lost magical creatures. Meanwhile, muggles fear for their lives while the enigmatic beasts are spotted all over New York.
The film is set in the 1920s, and the trailer catches the feeling of that era so well.
The first Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them movie will be unleashed in theaters on November 18, 2016. We have a feeling it’ll do quite well for itself. (Pretty sure that everything that J.K. Rowling touches turns to gold—like magic!)
The movie was directed by David Yates, who helmed several of the Harry Potter movies.
Are you ready for this new era of magic to begin?
