Ready your Butterbeer, folks. A final trailer has landed for Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them and of course it’s just as incredible as you’d expect from a screenplay by JK Rowling and Potter alumni director David Yates. It’s also positively packed with magical creatures. I’ve already spotted Bowtruckles, an inquisitive Niffler and what on earth is that thing with the giant horn?
It’s brilliant to see Newt Scamander (Eddie Redmayne) showing off the TARDIS-like capabilities of that exciting suitcase of his, even if it has brought swarms of fascinating creatures to New York that haven’t gone down well with the locals. There’s even our first glimpse of Ezra Miller’s character Credence Barebone, the adopted son of Samantha Morton’s cult leader who wants to find and expose all witches and wizards.
There’s also an interesting mention of the wizard Grindelwald who fans will recognise from the final Harry Potter book. I won’t go into spoilers here, but this might be a further hint that Dumbledore is making a surprise appearance. Enjoy the magic. We don’t have long to wait.
Directed by David Yates and starring Eddie Redmayne, Katherine Waterston, Farrell, Samantha Morton, Jon Voight, Gemma Chan, Ron Perlman, and Ezra Miller, Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them is scheduled to arrive in UK and US cinemas on November 18, 2016.
