Finally, a full-length trailer for Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them is here!
Fantastic Beats and Where to Find Them follows Newt Scamander (Eddie Redmayne), a magizoologist that finds himself in a bit of trouble when magical creatures from his briefcase escape, wreaking havoc in 1920s’ New York City. There are a lot of tensions within the American community between the muggles, or “no-maj”, and wizards to keep the magical world separate and hidden.
While the teasers have given us amazing visuals of the different settings, some clips of the creatures and the characters, this full-length is really highlighting the more dark and dangerous side to this film. Scamander comes to find out that the magical community in America is much different than at home, and facing these adversaries while catching all his creatures won’t be easy. Luckily he’s aided by a couple companions, witch Porpentina Goldstein (Katherine Waterston) and no-maj Jacob Kowalski (Dan Fogler), who marks the Potter universe’s first ever non-magic protagonist. We also get to see more of Colin Farrell’s character, Percival Graves, who is all about pureblood status and hates muggles. There are also more creatures that I can even name in this trailer, it’s well… fantastic.
I’m looking forward to seeing the relationships between these characters develop and how it changes the separation of the community. But let’s be honest, I’m ready to be wowed by all the cool creatures. You should definitely head over to Pottermore to find out your patronus (Great White Horse for life) to hold you over until November 18.
What do you think of the trailer? What are you most looking forward to?
