What could be better than a sequel to the Harry Potter series? A prequel, and that’s what we’re getting with Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them. The film, set in early 1900s New York City, explores the life of Newt Scamander an author. His book of the same title as the film, would later become a world renowned textbook on magical creatures. In the film, Newt is portrayed by Eddie Redmayne and from what the trailers are telling us, we meet him when he arrives in New York City after being expelled from Hogwarts and planning on writing more of his book.
Sadly, it seems trouble follows him wherever he goes, since soon after he arrives in New York City, he mistakenly allows a muggle (non-magic folk) open his magic briefcase which holds many a strange creature inside. The trailer is just as magical as the previous Harry Potter films and promises the same feel, but in a different time and with a whole different cast. The excitement over seeing how the wizarding world works in the United States is bubbling, since prior to Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them, we’ve only ever seen magic in Europe.
