So is there still some magic left in the Harry Potter universe? Warner Brothers Pictures sure hopes so. Come find out for yourself by watching the very first trailer for Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them, which is set 70 years before Harry's story.
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.
Check out the trailer in the video below and a new poster on the right.
The films stars Academy Award winner Eddie Redmayne (“The Theory of Everything”), Katherine Waterston (“Inherent Vice”) as Tina; Tony Award winner Dan Fogler (“The 25th Annual Putnam County Spelling Bee”) as Jacob; Alison Sudol (“Transparent”) as Tina’s sister, Queenie; Ezra Miller (“Trainwreck”) as Credence; two-time Oscar nominee Samantha Morton (“Sweet and Lowdown”) as Mary Lou; Oscar winner Jon Voight (“Ray Donovan”) as Henry Shaw, Sr.; Ron Perlman (the “Hellboy” films) as Gnarlack; Carmen Ejogo (“Selma”) as Seraphina; Jenn Murray (“Brooklyn”) as Chastity; young newcomer Faith Wood-Blagrove as Modesty; and Colin Farrell (“True Detective”) as Percival Graves.
Fantastic Beasts and Where To Find Them will be released in 3D and IMAX on November 18, 2016.
