further look at JK Rowling’s debut screenplay was granted to fans today after the latest trailer for Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them was released online.
The new trailer’s release accompanied a panel discussion at Comic Con in San Diego, where members of the film’s cast and crew shed light on the forthcoming movie.
Set within the same wizarding universe as the eight film adaptations of Rowling’s seven Harry Potter books, Fantastic Beasts takes place in 1920s New York, and will give viewers a look into Rowling’s concept of magical America.
Eddie Redmayne has been cast as the main character, Newt Scamander, a magizoologist who authored the text book on mythical creatures used decades later by Potter and his schoolmates.
In 1926, Newt Scamander (Eddie Redmayne) arrives at the Magical Congress of the United States of America for a meeting with an important official. At this meeting is a magically expanded briefcase, which houses a number of dangerous creatures and their habitats. When the creatures escape from the briefcase, it sends the American wizarding authorities after Newt, and threatens to strain even further the state of magical and non-magical relations.
The mistake has a devastating effect on both the Wizarding World and the Muggle World, which is already in a dangerous place, due to the threatening presence of the fanatical New Salem Philanthropic Society, an extremist organisation dedicated to the eradication of wizard-kind. Newt battles to correct the mistake, and the horrors of the resultant increase in violence, fear, and tension felt between magical and non-magical peoples.
