THE WONDERFUL WIZARDING WORLD Its the moment Harry Potter fans have waited for almost five years: Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them is almost here, and the first trailer has officially been released.

While the Harry Potter series showed the wizarding world of England, Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them will give audiences a glimpse of what the wizarding community is like in the United States. The movie takes place 70 years before the original franchise and follows the adventures of Newt Samander, a writer who studies magical creatures.

David Yates will return to direct this film, and with his previous experience at the head of the last four Harry Potter movies, he has already proved his ability to bring the magical stories of J.K. Rowling to life on the big screen. Oscar-winner Eddie Redmayne will star as the magizoologist, Newt Scamander, along with Colin Farrell and Jon Voight.

The trailer is sure to bring chills to any Potterhead from the familiar spell at the beginning to the haunting theme music at the end. Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them is sure to be one of the most highly anticipated movies of 2016.
