‘Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them’ Trailer Invades Comic-Con With Magical New Footage
Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them hits theaters in November, returning Harry Potter fans to J.K. Rowling’s wizarding world — or a different corner of it, anyway. Warner Bros. brought the first film in their magical spinoff trilogy to Comic-Con 2016, where they debuted a rather, uh, fantastic new trailer featuring plenty of beasts, indeed.
The latest trailer sees Eddie Redmayne’s Newt Scamander hunting down the various beasts and creatures that have escaped from his magical suitcase before they can wreak havoc on New York. Fantastic Beasts takes us back in time to 1926 and explores the American side of Rowling’s beloved fictional universe, looking absolutely stunning in the latest trailer — which is a bit more exciting than the first, to be honest.
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.
