Watch: Teaser Trailer for 'Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them'
"Yesterday a wizard entered New York with a case. A case full of magical creatures…" Warners Bros has unveiled the very first "announcement" teaser trailer for Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them, the spin-off continuation of the Harry Potter franchise. This is a very short initial trailer without much real footage, but it does remind us all that this is connected to the Harry Potter universe. Eddie Redmayne stars as Newt Scamander, a writer living in New York City. The cast includes Ezra Miller, Colin Farrell, Ron Perlman, Jon Voight and Samantha Morton. This is the same David Yates who also made The Legend of Tarzan, and is currently in the middle of filming this. It's just our first taste. What do you think?
