And of course there’s also a Comic-Con trailer for Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them. This is without a doubt the best trailer released so far for the movie.
Okay, that’s a cool angle for the movie. In Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them Newt Scamander is actually tying to protect his escaped beasts from the other much more dangerous creatures, us, humans. And it makes complete sense, these beasts come from a very different world and they’re probably pretty terrified of just about everything in our weird world where people shoot first and ask questions later. Another thing, while the movie is called Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them, we’ve yet to actually have a good look at these beasts. They’ve only been teased so far and I think that’s pretty smart, leaving a few surprises for the theater experience. Also it seems Colin Farrell is the bad guy here, very likely the wizard sent by the American wizarding authorities (yes, that’s a thing) to catch Newt.
David Yates, who also directed the second half of the Harry Potter movies, helmed Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them based on a screenplay written by Potter author J.K. Rowling. Starring in the new adventure are Eddie Redmayne, Katherine Waterston, Colin Farrell, Samantha Morton, Ron Perlman, Ezra Miller, Jon Voight, Dan Fogler and many others.
Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them opens November 18th around the world.
