“Mr. Scamander, do you know anything about the wizarding community in America? We don’t like things loose.”
The Ellen Show has premiered the first look at the full trailer for Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them, treating us to a tour through 1920s New York City and the suitcase full of magical creatures that cause a ruckus throughout the Big Apple: hatching eggs in the bank, mysterious energy in Times Square, dark magic flowing through the subway. Moreso than the other glimpses of the film, we see these and other classic locales, giving us more a sense of the city into which Newt Scamander (Eddie Redmayne) stumbles with his Pandora’s box of beasts.
We also see how the film fits within J.K. Rowling’s larger wizarding world universe: “This is related to Grindelwald’s attacks in Europe,” Seraphina Picquery, the President of the Magical Congress of the United States, says. “This could mean war.”
Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them comes to theaters November 18.
