Warner Bros. Pictures today released a new trailer for Harry Potter spinoff film Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them.
The new trailer does the best job yet of showing the conflict brewing between no-maj's (American muggles) and the wizarding community as New Scamander (Eddie Redmayne) accidentally reveals the existence of magic to the no-maj population.
The trailer also offers our best look yet at the actual fantastic beasts that the film takes its name from, which escape from Newt's case when his magizoological studies bring him to New York City.
Warner Bros. also released a new Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them poster to accompany the poster. Check it out below.
Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them will be the screenwriting debut of J.K. Rowling, the creator of Harry Potter. Rowling is also writing the script for the sequel. Fantastic Beasts has been planned as a trilogy of films inspired by the Hogwarts textbook of the same name, which Rowling wrote and had published in 2001. The film follows Newt Scamander (Redmayne), the author of said textbook) , in the 1920s, while he was still researching magical creatures. The magizoologists make his way to New York City with his suitcase full of magical creatures. When some of those creatures manage to escape, it creates tension between the American magical community, governed by the Magical Congress of the United States of America, and the No-Maj (American muggle) community.
Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them is the first in a planned trilogy of films inspired by the book from the Hogwarts library, created by Harry Potter author J.K. Rowling. Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them is directed by Harry Potter film veteran David Yates, and is Rowling's screenwriting debut.
