New Fantastic Beasts Trailer Is Full Of Magic and Chaos
Looks like November is the month for magic. During SDCC Warner Bros treated us to a second trailer for the upcoming Harry Potter spinoff Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find them.
Taking us back to a time before Harry Potter was born Fantastic Beasts follows the adventures of protagonist Newt Scamander (Eddie Redmayne), the author of one the many textbooks Harry and his friends will end up using in later years. Newt arrives in New York with his suitcase filled with different magical beasts he has collected to study. Unfortunately for Newt some of the beasts escape and cause chaos throughout the city.
As we go through the trailer we get glimpses of the beasts and the damage that they are causing around New York. We also see different elements of the wizarding world and how non-magical people (no-maj’s) react to the beasts showing up in their world. It’s mentioned that they attack when their threatened, although we mostly just see them running in terror. It’s also clear that Newt is very much trying to keep the beast from getting hurt, maybe a little more than the humans. Either way the visuals and overall feel throughout the trailer are, for lack of a better word, fantastic. It is also proof that the Harry Potter franchise doesn’t his name at the beginning to keep us interested.
Fantastic Beast and Where to Find Them is set to arrive in theatres November 18.
