WATCH: First trailer of 'Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them' released
MANILA, Philippines – The first trailer of the movie Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them was released on Tuesday, December 15.
It's a prequel to the Harry Potter series. Fantastic Beasts is the title of the textbook about magical creatures. Harry Potter author JK Rowling published a book under the same title in 2001 to accompany the series.
In the trailer, Newt Scamander (Eddie Redmayne) arrives in New York in 1926 with a suitcase full of magical creatures. Some of the creatures managed to escape though, after the suitcase was opened "just a smidge."
Last June, it was announced that Redmayne would play the role of Newt Scamander. Entertainment Weekly released the first look at Redmayne as Newt in November.
The movie also stars Colin Farrell, Katherine Waterston, and Samantha Morton.
