Watch the latest trailer for Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them

The latest trailer for the upcoming Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them is here, and it's giving us a clearer vision of what the American Wizarding World was like circa 1926. Here, Newt Scamander (Eddie Redmayne) has just arrived in New York, and happens to be smuggling a creature or two with incredible magical powers. It's when one of the creatures escapes that all hell breaks loose, and American Auror Percival Graves (Colin Farrell) is sent after him.

Fantastic Beasts, based on J.K. Rowling's 2001 book of the same name, is a prequel to the Harry Potter series, and it looks like that some of the characters that affected that series will play some part here. For instance, Scamander is said to have attracted the interest of Albus Dumbledore himself. The film is also the first in a trilogy, with the followups hitting theaters in 2018 and 2020. Obviously, Mr. Scamander has a lot of adventuring ahead. Fantastic Beasts debuts on November 18th.
