We got our first glimpse at the highly-anticipated sequel when the first trailer was released back in March, which showed Newt in London and Paris, and meeting with his old teacher Albus Dumbledore.

But this new trailer gives us even more exciting details – most importantly, we get to see Joshua Shea, who plays a young Newt, in action at Hogwarts.

Just last week, Entertainment Weekly revealed the first picture of Joshua in character as Newt.

And during a recent interview with BuzzFeed, Eddie Redmayne – aka Newt Scamander himself – opened up about what it was like getting to see his younger counterpart at work.

When asked about the most magical thing that happened on set, Eddie immediately thought of his mini-me: "There's a mini version of me in the film played by a lovely actor called Josh. He's at Hogwarts."

"We met early on in the film, he came and sat in my trailer, and he had watched the whole first film," he went on. "His imitation of all Newt's mannerisms was so brilliant, and it was such a joy to watch him work."

"I think, for all of us, whenever a new actor comes on board and sees the scale and the excitement of working in that Potter world, it's always pretty great," he went on.

The trailer also shows us another glimpse of newcomer Zoë Kravitz in character as Leta Lestrange, who seems to be causing some trouble between Newt and Tina.

"I mean, this movie could be called Fantastic Beasts and...It’s Complicated," Katherine Waterston, who plays Tina, joked to BuzzFeed. "You know, all these relationships are really dynamic and rich."

And there are hints that Credence Barebone is back and causing even more trouble.

Dumbledore's relationship with Grindelwald seems more than a little complicated – we see him looking into a mirror (not to spread rumours but...the Mirror of Erised, anyone???) and seeing Grindelwald's reflection.

And we get our first look at Brontis Jodorowsky in character as the famed alchemist – and close friend of Dumbledore's – Nicolas Flamel.
