Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them trailer released

Harry Potter spin-off Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them gets first trailer.

The long awaited sequel to the Harry Potter movies, Fantastic Beasts And Where To Find Them, has had its first trailer released online by Warner Bros.

The long awaited spin-off, which stars Eddie Redmayne, is set to hit cinemas next year.

The promotional trailer begins with a wizard uttering the famous spell ‘lumos maxima’, before another voice explains that “yesterday a wizard entered New York with a case, a case full of magical creatures and unfortunately, some have escaped.”

In the trailer, fans of JK Rowling’s work finally get to see Redmayne’s Newt Scamander in action, wearing the same clothes seen in previously released promotional photographs.

According to previous reports, the upcoming film will focus on Redmayne’s eccentric magizoologist as he travels to America, an apparently wiz-phobic country that homes numerous magical beings.
