Here Are All The References To "Harry Potter" In The "Fantastic Beasts" Trailer
BRB, lying in a pool of tears until November 2016...
ICYMI, the first official teaser trailer for Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them has dropped, and it is perfection.
In it, we get our first ~real~ glimpse of Eddie Redmayne in character as magical zoologist Newt Scamander, and he's definitely been practising his wand action.
But the trailer also includes a few subtle references to the Harry Potter films. Prepare to get emotional.
A few people have already pointed out that the teaser trailer itself opens in the same way as Harry Potter and the Prisoner of Azkaban.
Both the teaser and the 2004 film open with the words "Lumos Maxima"...
Followed by the introductory Warner Bros logo that we all know and love.
Yes, we're 20 seconds in and you're already crying.
