Professor Dumbledore knows something we don’t in new trailer for Harry Potter spin-off Fantastic Beasts

Colin Farrell's Auror wants answers from the Hogwarts teacher in the new film based on Eddie Redmayne's Newt Scamander


Hold on to your magically expanding hats – the first full trailer for Fantastic Beasts and Where To Find them is here and my oh my, is it Fantastic with a capital F.


Leading man Eddie Redmayne took to the stage at the MTV Music Awards in Los Angeles – which aired on US TV last night – to reveal an exclusive sneak peek at JK Rowling’s first instalment in the Harry Potter prequel trilogy and it’s enough to give any fan of the franchise goosepimples.

Colin Farrell’s Auror, Graves, interrogates Redmayne’s Scamander about his past while the events of the film unfold in front of our eyes – all set to the haunting bars of an all-too familiar theme. But what does Albus Dumbledore know about Newt?

Why was the young magizoologist kicked out of Hogwarts?

And how does he do THAT with his suitcase?

If you’ll excuse us, we’ll be in our common room digging out our robes and brushing up on our Care of Magical Creatures – we’re just a TAD excited now, y’see.


Fantastic Beasts and Where To Find Them opens in UK cinemas on November 23rd
