While five years has passed since the magical realm of the Harry Potter world has been showcased on screen, it would appear as if no time has gone by at all. What with the hullabaloo and excitement surround the opening of The Wizarding World of Harry Potter at Universal Studio Hollywood and the new feature film Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them set for theaters later this year. A new teaser trailer for the film has just arrived to pique our appetites for more magic in store. The trailer made its debut at the MTV Movie Awards.
David Yates (a Potter regular who directed the last four films in the franchise; he’s also got The Legend of Tarzan due this year) helms this tale written by J.K. Rowling. Oscar winner Eddie Redmayne portrays Newt Scamander and the film chronicles his magical adventures in a New York City secret society of wizardry decades before a young man named Harry stepped foot into Hogwarts. Redmayne, who won an Oscar for The Theory of Everything and was nominated again this past year for The Danish Girl, took to the MTV Movie Awards stage to present the latest tease of Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them.
The ensemble cast includes Katherine Waterston (Steve Jobs), Colin Farrell (The Lobster), Ezra Miller (We Need to Talk About Kevin), Ron Perlman (Hellboy), Samantha Morton (In America), Carmen Ejogo (Selma) and Jon Voight (Ali). Check out the latest trailer below. Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them opens in theaters on November 18th.
