New ‘Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them’ Trailer Confirms Humans Are Still the Biggest Threat

Comic-Con audiences received magic wands during a Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them panel, where star Eddie Redmayne made an appearance. Written by J.K. Rowling, the Harry Potter prequel finds Redmayne as a magizoologist named Newt Scamander. The film is set 70 years before Harry Potter reads his book in school. A new trailer emerged in Hall H, which shows us what happens when the absent-minded wizard’s suitcase full of magic beasts escape in 1920s New York. “They’re currently in alien terrain surrounded by millions of the most vicious creatures on the planet — humans,” says Newt in the new clip. Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them arrives in theaters on November 18.
