If your holiday wishlist consists solely of accioing a first-glimpse at the "Harry Potter" prequel "Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them," then you must be on Santa's nice list this year because Warner Bros. has announced that the first trailer for the 1926-set story of Newt Scamander and his No-Maj (that is, American muggle) friends in the Big Apple is coming very soon.
In the announcement trailer for the spin-off series starter, which will drop on Tuesday (Dec. 15), fans will get to see a never-before-seen bit of author-turned-screenwriter J.K. Rowling's wizarding world.
Here's a video teaser for the teaser (yes, it's that big of a deal).
"Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them" will reveal the story of Newt Scamander (Eddie Redmayne), a magizoologist who travels the world in search for the world's most magical creatures, and how he accidentally-maybe lets some of them escape for all of New York City's No-Majs to see. Whoops.
The film also features Katherine Waterston as Tina, Dan Fogler as Jacob (the No-Maj who causes the most trouble for Newt), Alison Sudol as Tina's sister Queenie, Ezra Miller as Credence, Samantha Morton as Mary Lou, Jon Voight as Henry Shaw, Ron Perlman as Gnarlack, Carmen Ejogo as Seraphina, Jenn Murray as Chastity, Faith Wood-Blagrove as Modesty, and Colin Farrel as Percival Graves. Not that we know who any of these new characters are, but hey, we will soon enough.
“Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them” hits theaters November 18, 2016.
