Warner Bros. cast a spell for San Diego Comic-Con’s attendees while concluding their exhausted presentation. Oscar winner Eddie Redmayne took court, to swoon of many attendees, he even handed out wands to prepare for the Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them panel, which also included a special trailer for the upcoming Harry Potter spin-off. Redmayne then led the entire audience in a Luminos Maxima spell.
Director David Yates (The Legend of Tarzan) was also on hand, making his Comic-Con debut to help set the mood for this spin-off chapter in J.K. Rowling’s sprawling epic series. In the film, Redmayne portrays “magizoologist” Newt Scamander, a man newly arrived to New York following a global expedition to find and document a vast array of magical creatures. The film also stars Katherine Waterston, Ezra Miller, Colin Farrell, Alison Sudol and Dan Fogler.
Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them arrives in theaters on November 18th. Check out the latest trailer below.
