It's finally here!
The long awaited, highly anticipated first trailer for Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them has arrived. Eddie Redmayne stars as Newt Scamander, a famous magizoologist who travels to New York with his trusty case that can obviously carry far more than it appears to, just like every other tote we've come to see in the Harry Potter franchise.
Within this case are expansive habitats for a collection of rare and endangered magical creatures from Newt's travels around globe. While in the Big Apple, Newt realizes the wizarding population is fearfully hiding from No-Maj. The first installment of the trilogy (!) is the story of what happens when Newt travels to wiz-phobic America and some of his creatures escape.
While Newt might be fearful of the U.S. and its wizphobia, it's Redmayne who is really nervous about the launch of the franchise. "The stakes are high because they were so good before," Redmayne told E! News. "You don't want to screw it up."
