Get your wands ready because the “Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them” trailer is finally here! It’s just the teaser trailer, but it still gives fans their first look at the new footage. The film brings fans back to the Wizarding World from “Harry Potter,” but this story takes place decades before Harry went to Hogwarts. As previously reported, the film, written by J.K. Rowling, will follow Newt Scamander (Eddie Redmayne) as he visits the U.S. in 1926, but trouble starts when a few of his magical creatures escape from his briefcase.
Check out a few things you may have missed in the “Fantastic Beasts” video:
1. MACUSA -- Tina (Katherine Waterston) tells officials that Newt’s creatures are on the loose in front of the Magical Congress of the United States of America (MACUSA). The seal at the end of the wall is the same seal Newt was standing on in the first promotional pictures, but this is audiences’ first glimpse inside the space.
2. Carmen Ejogo -- Carmen Ejogo’s casting was announced in October, but Warner Bros. decided to keep her role top secret. It looks like she could be the president (America’s version of a Minister of Magic), or at least someone very powerful. Tina has to tell Ejogo’s character about the trouble Newt is causing.
3. Graves -- It’s hard to miss the apartment with the blown out wall, but you may have missed who is inside. It looks like Graves (Colin Farrell) is the one standing in that destroyed apartment. He is the president’s assistant, so his appearance likely means that government officials are considering Newt's creatures to be serious problems. Since the Wizarding World is very afraid of being exposed, they’ll want to lock down the beasts ASAP. Fans will have to hope they don’t want to lock up Newt as well.
