A second trailer for Fantastic Beasts was released narrated by Colin Farrell.
In the trailer we see Newt Scamander (Eddie Redmayne) arriving in New York while the narrator explains how he was expelled from Hogwarts, with just one teacher opposing his expulsion. Albus Dumbledore.
Set in (magical) New York in the twenties, Fantastic Beasts seems like a fantastic movie that will appeal more to grown ups instead of children, or at least the grown ups will also be able to relate to the movie, unlike with the Harry Potter films.
Based on the book (written by J.K. Rowling) that Harry reads (in his own film series), Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them is the first part of a planned trilogy.
Later this year another treat for all Harry Potter fans will hit theaters, introducing the characters from Harry’s book, Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them.
“Fantastic Beasts” is the second film by director David Yates this year, the first one being The Legend of Tarzan. David Yates directed the last four Harry Potter films as well, so I guess he knows what he is doing with this one.
Ezra Miller as Credence, Eddie Redmayne as Newt Scamander, Colin Farell as Percival Graves, Ron Perlman as Gnarlack, Jon Voight as Henry Shaw, Sr, Katherine Waterston as Porpentina Goldstein, Carmen Ejogo as Seraphina and Gemma Chan.
The adventures of writer Newt Scamander in New York’s secret community of witches and wizards seventy years before Harry Potter reads his book in school.
Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them premieres on 18 November 2016.
