Here’s the ‘Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them’ Trailer That’s Not Even Really a Trailer

Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them

If you’re into this sort of thing, the Harry Potter prequel/spin-off Fantastic Beasts and We Honestly Don’t Even Care Where to Find Them has a trailer. Except it’s not a trailer. Not really.

You can get your first glimpse of what the Wizarding World of the United States looks like (again, sort of) below.

Penned by J.K. Rowling, Fantastic Beasts and Can’t You Just Write Another Book Instead hits theatres on November 18, 2016.

The story revolves around Newt Scamander’s arrival at the Magical Congress of the United States of America, for a meeting with an important official. Central to the story and this meeting is a magically expanded briefcase which houses a number of dangerous creatures and their habitats. When the creatures escape from the briefcase, it sends the American wizarding authorities after Newt, and it threatens even further the state of magical and non-magical relations, which is already in a dangerous place, due to the threatening presence of the fanatical extremist group that call themselves, in short, “The Second Salemers”. The story tells of what effect this devastating mistake has on the state of wizard/No-Maj (the American term for a non-magical person) relations in New York City’s community of wizards and witches in 1926, the effort to correct the mistake, and the horrors of the resultant increase in violence, fear, and tension felt between magical and non-magical peoples.
