The Wizarding World of J.K. Rowling lives on! The final trailer for Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them was released this morning and in it, lots of juicy details for fans to digest about Newt Scamander's adventure in New York on his quest to document the extraordinary creatures that inhabit the non-muggle world. Our hero and his wizardly colleagues (or "witches" as the citizens of 1920's New York fear them) must capture all the beasts that have escaped Newt's suitcase, wreaking havoc on the great city. See for yourself in the thrilling new trailer.
Not only did a monumental new trailer drop filled with beasts and characters unseen before today, but the film also released a new poster featuring (left-to-right) Porpentina Goldstein (Katherine Waterston), Newt Scamander (Eddie Redmayne), Jacob Kowalski (Dan Fogler), and Queenie Goldstein (Alison Sudol).
