“Fantastic Beasts and Where To Find Them”
MTV premiered the first official trailer for J.K. Rowling’s “Fantastic Beasts and Where To Find Them,” starring Eddie Redmayne, during the 2016 MTV Movie Awards on Sunday, April 10. Warner Bros.

The first official trailer for J.K. Rowling’s “Fantastic Beasts and Where To Find Them” is finally here. Viewers were given their first look at the highly anticipated film during the 2016 MTV Movie Awards, which aired on Sunday.

While the film is an extension of the “Harry Potter” franchise, Rowling has been adamant that the two are not one and the same. Still, that didn’t stop her from gifting fans with a few Easter eggs in the preview. At a glance Potterheads will recognize the names of several people and places in Newt Scamander’s (Eddie Redmayne) world — but it doesn’t stop there.

Here are five nods to “Harry Potter” featured in the “Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them” trailer:

1. The Theme Music

The trailer introduces viewers to Newt, a magizoologist tasked with traveling into the muggle world to collect information on various magical creatures. While he embarks on his journey from the wizarding world to New York City, a familiar song plays quietly in the background. The song is, of course, the same used in “Harry Potter” previews throughout the years.

2. Hogwarts Mentions

Newt may be well beyond school-aged, but he’s still got ties to Hogwarts. Early in the clip a voiceover reveals that much like Harry Potter, the “Fantastic Beasts” lead was once a student at Hogwarts School of Witchcraft and Wizardry. His time there was cut short, however, after a mishap involving a potentially deadly beast. The school is once again alluded to in a scene that provides a quick glimpse inside Newt’s magical suitcase, which holds a Hufflepuff scarf.

3. Owls

Much like in the “Harry Potter” films, owls appear to play a role in “Fantastic Beasts.” Several of the friendly fowl bear a striking resemblance to Hedwig, Harry’s bird.

4. Familiar Characters

Although none of the faces in Rowling’s “Fantastic Beasts” may mean anything to “Harry Potter” fans, the trailer does mention some much-beloved characters. While the voiceover discusses Newt’s tumultuous past at Hogwarts, it is revealed that one person on staff rallied behind him — Albus Dumbledore.

5. The Creatures

Rowling made it known that while there would be no crossover characters in the “Fantastic Beasts” trilogy, viewers would recognize many of the creatures featured. After the trailer’s release Pottermore shared a post detailing the many strange mythical animals seen in the short clip that were first introduced during the seven “Harry Potter” films. Those magical specimens include nifflers and a swooping evil. The site has promised to continue sharing information about Rowling’s “Fantastic Beasts” as the film’s premiere grows nearer.

“Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them” hits theaters Nov. 18, 2016. The movie began filming in August 2015 at the same studio used to shoot the “Harry Potter” series.
