Watch the first Harry Potter: Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them trailer

Since the 2011 finale of the Harry Potter film series, we’ve longed for wizardly antics – but no more!

The very first trailer for the next Harry Potter movie has finally dropped.

Warner Bros. Pictures today uploaded the trailer for Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find them to YouTube.

Check out the video below:


The movie tells the tale of magizoologist – what a job – Newt Scamander, and is set in 1926 New York.

Scamander will be played by Eddie Redmayne, a British actor who won an Oscar, a BAFTA, and a Golden Globe for his recent performance as Stephen Hawking in The Theory of Everything.

The film is the first screenplay ever written by Potter author J K Rowling, and will be directed by David Yates, who has four Potter films already under his belt.

Other cast members include Colin Farrell, Katherine Waterston, Alison Sudol, Dan Fogler, Samantha Morton, and Ezra Miller.

The Harry Potter: Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them release date is currently set for November 18, 2016.
