New Trailer for David Yates' 'Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them'
"I wonder, what makes Albus Dumbledore so fond of you, Mr. Scamander?" What a line! Warner Bros has debuted another new full-length trailer for Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them, the next new Harry Potter spin-off franchise launching this December, once again directed by David Yates (who also directed The Legend of Tarzan out this year). Oscar winner Eddie Redmayne stars as Newt Scamander, a magizoologist who winds up letting loose a suitcase full of magical creatures in New York City in the 20s. In this trailer we finally get to meet more of the cast including Katherine Waterston, Alison Sudol, Dan Fogler, and Colin Farrell, among others. It still plays like a teaser but I admire the way the score builds and becomes the centerpiece along with the impressive footage. This actually looks pretty darn good. Enjoy.
Here's the new teaser trailer for David Yate's Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them, from WB:
The adventures of writer Newt Scamander (Eddie Redmayne) in New York's secret community of witches and wizards seventy years before Harry Potter reads his book in school. A new spin-off series from the Harry Potter world, written by J.K. Rowling. The first movie, Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them, is being directed by English filmmaker David Yates, director of Harry Potter and the Order of the Phoenix, plus Half-Blood Prince, and both Deathly Hallows two-part finale. The film features the American version of the Ministry of Magic, housed in the Woolworth Building in New York, known as the "Magical Congress of the United States of America (or MACUSA)". This looks fun. Warner Bros will release Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them in theaters nationwide starting on November 18th this fall. Looking forward to this?
Nice! Excited to see where Ms. Rowling and Mr. Yates take us this time... Did not yet read the book itself, but will most likely pick it up, so that I have the background for the movie.

The book isn't a narrative. Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them is a book "written" by the character Newt Skamander who Redmayne plays. So you might learn about all the creatures but you won't get the story of the film.

I have now come around on this one and am fully IN. Not that I was out before, but FANTASTIC BEASTS AND WHERE TO FIND THEM just has my full attention. Redmayne is the biggest X-factor, but even his performance looks like it will be solid enough to forget about his strange face.

I love the time period this is set in. The name drops connecting it to the originals was well done. My son and I are reading Deathly Hallows now so we'll definitely be done with the book and see the film before this is released. Looking forward to more magic!

I don't know. Even my twelve year daughter is not really interested for those beasts anymore ...
