Something wicked this way comes. The full trailer for J.K. Rowling’s latest film adaptation, Fantastic Beasts And Where To Find Them, is here, complete with explosions, vintage New York City, and lots of peculiarities.
Gone are the days of Hogwarts and billowing robes. Rowling’s story focuses on a 1920s New York City, where magic is as secretive as prohibition. Us non-magic folk are called No-Majs, too. (Thankfully, the term “muggle” is not lost, though.) Eddie Redmayne, as the wide-eyed Newt Scamander, has brought his Marry Poppins-type suitcase into America and, with it, a hoard of fantastic beasts. Do the beasts come in peace? The trailer alludes to the possibility of both. Colin Farrell’s character, though, could turn them into villains. Gangs Of New York has gone full-magic. Lumos, fellow No-Majs; it’s about to be lit.
Fantastic Beasts And Where To Find Them opens November 16.
