The new trailer for Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them has hit the internet, and fans are really liking what they’re seeing. J.K. Rowling & David Yates’ follow-up to the Potter franchise will take place in 1920’s New York, and will be the first in a trilogy of films revolving around the character of Newt Scamander (played by Eddie Redmayne). The film is based on an original screenplay written by Rowling, and this will mark the first time that she has written something directly for film.
The plot of the film is relatively unknown at this point in time, but hey – we didn’t know much about The Force Awakens, and that turned out to be a blessing in disguise.
What we do know, however, is that the events of the film are thrust forward by a magical briefcase which houses a vast amount of creatures. Some creatures escape from the briefcase, threatening the secrecy of the world of magic, and putting Newt’s life in jeopardy.
If you’d like to see a breakdown of the trailer, and what’s to come in the film, you can check out this great video by Grace Randolph from Beyond the Trailer.
Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them will be released worldwide on November 18th 2015.
