Here’s your last sneak peak, muggles: the final trailer for Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them is here. And it has some pretty fantastic beasts.
Set in 1920s New York City, this Potter prequel stars Academy Award winner Eddie Redmayne (The Theory of Everything) in the central role of wizarding world magizoologist Newt Scamander. It’s an adaptation of the book by J.K. Rowling – who also wrote the script – and is directed by David Yates, who helmed the last four Harry Potter blockbusters.
Here’s the official synopsis:
- Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them opens in 1926 as Newt Scamander has just completed a global excursion to find and document an extraordinary array of magical creatures. Arriving in New York for a brief stopover, he might have come and gone without incident…were it not for a No-Maj (American for Muggle) named Jacob, a misplaced magical case, and the escape of some of Newt’s fantastic beasts, which could spell trouble for both the wizarding and No-Maj worlds.
Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them will come out from under its invisibility cloak and reveal itself to the world on November 18, 2016.
