We see Eddie Redmayne as Newt Scamander for the first time, where we see him boss the word "smidge."

Newt is a magizoologist who travels the world to find weird and wonderful magical creatures. Here he arrives in New York, but he misplaces one of his cases.

As well as bossing it with a wand in the streets of New York City for 0.1 really quite exciting seconds.

But it wasn't filmed in America. Fantastic Beasts was filmed at Warner Bros studios in Leavesden in England, the same location to a number of Harry Potter films. There were also some scenes filmed in Liverpool.

And if you listen to the music you'll hear some familiar Harry Potter notes.


Naturally, Harry Potter fans lost their shit.

J.K. Rowling doesn't need to invite me to return to the Wizarding world—I never left. I stayed. I will stay. Always. #FantasticBeastsTrailer

"where do you plan to go in life?" #FantasticBeastsTrailer

FINALLY... #FantasticBeastsTrailer

And J.K. Rowling, who is also the screenwriter for the new film, tweeted this in response.

Thank you for all your #FantasticBeasts messages! It feels wonderful to show you a tiny part of what we've been working on for so long!
