The 2016 MTV Movie Awards aren’t just honoring films from last year, the network will also be getting viewers excited for the next big blockbusters. The most recent addition to the list of exclusive previews is “Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them.”
The sneak-peek video will be presented by Eddie Redmayne, who plays Newt Scamander in the film, MTV reports. “Fantastic Beasts” is set in the universe of “Harry Potter,” but takes place in the 1920s. Newt, a magizoologist, heads to New York City with a suitcase of magical creatures. They quickly escape and get him into trouble. The stakes are even higher in New York, where wizards fear the non-magical community discovering their powers.
Unlike “Potter,” much of the story in “Fantastic Beasts” is unknown. J.K. Rowling wrote the script, the first in a trilogy of new films, and hasn’t revealed too many details. The MTV Movie Awards preview will be the first new footage fans have seen in months. So far, the only footage that has been seen is in the first trailer and a behind-the-scenes featurette. Watch the behind-the-scenes video below:
“Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them” is one of many films debuting new footage during the awards ceremony. Exclusive previews for “Captain America: Civil War” and “Suicide Squad” will also air. Chris Evans (Captain America) will present the Marvel footage, while Margot Robbie (Harley Quinn), Will Smith (Deadshot), Cara Delevingne (Enchantress) and Jared Leto (Joker) will show the DC clip.
While both superhero flicks are planned to be summer blockbusters, fans will have to wait a little longer to see the rest of the magical movie. “Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them” will hit the big screen on Nov. 18.
The 2016 MTV Movie Awards air Sunday, April 10, at 8 p.m. EDT on MTV.
