The First Trailer for 'Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them' Is Here and It's Magical
Warner Bros.

It's been four years since the last Harry Potter movie came out, which is way way too long to live without wands and wizards on the big screen. Enter the new trailer for Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them, which opens with a familiar spell to remind us all that we're back in J.K. Rowling's warm and cozy magical embrace.

The trailer for the Harry Potter spin-off/prequel is fairly brief, but it gives us our first look at Eddie Redmayne as Newt Scamander, who brings a suitcase full of magical beasts to 1920s New York City and then — whoops — loses some of them. Fantastic Beasts looks both familiar and a bit different (wizards with American accents!), but it's clear that the film is aiming to echo much of what made the Harry Potter movies so great.

What do you think of the trailer for Fantastic Beasts? Are you excited to dive back into Rowling's world? Hit the comments with your thoughts!

Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them hits theaters November 2016.
