The trailer for Fantastic Beasts and Where to find them premiered at the MTV Movie Awards on Sunday, April 10. It gave Harry Potter fans exactly what they needed because the last Harry Potter film premiered in 2011.
Fantastic Beasts is a book that Harry Potter reads in the school library. David Heyman will be producing this film and he also produced the Harry Potter films. The film will take place in New York in the 1920s and will be 70 years before Harry Potter exists.
The film will be a trilogy since there are three books and you can go to any store that sells books to purchase them. The film is about a man named Newt Scamander who has completed a global excursion to find multiple magical creatures. Some of the magical creatures escape and that can mean trouble for both the wizarding world and the non-magical world.
The main character Newton is going to be played by Eddie Redmayne. Although they didn’t give much away, it did a good job reassuring Harry Potter fans that it’s going to be like Harry Potter. Eddie referenced Hogwarts and used the same spells, there were the same popular magical objects and it had the same theme song. Fantastic Beasts and Where to find them will be released November 18, 2016.
