For a few minutes on Saturday, Comic-Con’s Hall H was taken over by magic. In a sweet Comic-Con surprise, Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them star Eddie Redmayne handed out wands to the entire audience, and then led all 7,000 people in shouting “lumos maxima” to bring more light into the room.
But that wasn’t the most exciting thing to come out of the panel. That would be the new Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them trailer, which you can see below.

We’ve still got months until Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them expands the wizarding world of Harry Potter on the big screen. The spin-off that Warner Bros. hopes will be the start of a new franchise follows Eddie Redmayne as Newt Scamander, an expert on magical creatures who finds himself in New York City. The film will give us our first look at what the world of magic is like in North America, and that includes an American school for learning witchcraft and wizardry.
A new Fantastic Beasts featurette shines a light on Ilvermorny School of Witchcraft and Wizardry, located on the highest peak of Mount Greylock in Massachusetts. The video uses some stylish animation to tell a very brief story of how the school was founded, which includes a young Irish girl named Isolt Sayre and her aunt Gormlaith Gaunt. (That last name might ring a bell for Harry Potter fans.) Watch the video after the jump. Read More »

In some ways, the setting of Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them should seem familiar. We’ve already spent eight movies in that universe, after all. But this prequel unfolds 70 years and an ocean away from Harry Potter. And as a new Fantastic Beasts featurette reveals, the American wizarding world of the 1920s is something else entirely.
Oh sure, the wands and the spells and the CG creatures are still there. But when Porpetina (Katherine Waterston) asks Newt (Eddie Redmayne), “Do you know anything about the wizarding community in America?” she could be talking to us. And the answer would be “No, but we can’t wait to learn.” Feast your eyes on tons of new footage in the latest Fantastic Beasts featurette below. Read More »
