'Fantastic Beasts' Teaser Trailer Released: See The 'Harry Potter' Spinoff

Last month, we got a first glimpse of Eddie Redmayne portraying Newt Scamander in the Harry Potter spinoff Fantastic Beasts and Where To Find Them, one of 2016's most anticipated movies. Now, we can see him in action… for a few seconds, at least.

The first teaser trailer for Fantastic Beasts depicts the touchstones of J.K. Rowling's wizarding world, except that Scamander is causing fantastical mischief in 1920s New York City with his big, clunky briefcase. We even get a bit of wand-wielding from the recent Oscar winner!

Fantastic Beasts and Where To Find Them is due out Nov. 18, 2016, and is directed by David Yates, who helmed the final four Harry Potter films. The upcoming movie also serves as Rowling's first screenplay.
