Return To The Wizarding World In The First Trailer For Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them

Trailer FrenzyA special place to find the newest trailers for movies and TV shows you're craving.

It’s been just four years since we last visited J.K. Rowling’s magical world on the big screen, but it feels like much longer. And while this trailer for the prequel series Fantastic Beasts doesn’t have much to it, it’s a first glimpse at what it’s going to be like being back in this world—just with American accents.

There’s not much to it other than a brief rundown of what to expect—Newt Scamander (Eddie Redmayne)’s suitcase full of dangerous magical creatures has had a minor leakage, and now he’s got to hunt down the escapees across 1920s New York—but it certainly is exciting and strange to be returning to the land of all things Potter. Even if it’s not quite as familiar as it was before. Seriously, all those American accents! It is a little strange at first after years of incredibly British magic shenanigans.

Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them hits theatres November 2016.

I have the feeling this movie is going to be less of the “How To” manual that I was expecting.

Also, why would he be carying dangerous magical creatures in a suitcase? We’re about to learn the origins of the laws that wouldn’t let Hagrid own a dragon, aren’t we? Truly the greatest of mysteries.

Seriously though, I hope they show a little of the American version of the Ministry of Magic.
