WATCH: New magical creatures are unveiled in new Fantastic Beasts trailer
Upcoming Harry Potter spin-off film Fantastic Beasts and Where To Find Them has got a new trailer for the Olympics.
The new trailer mixes clips we’ve already seen with brand new footage, including some of Newt Scamander’s many magical creatures.
In the new trailer, we first meet a goblin, then see Newt’s No-Maj friend Jacob Kowalski mauled by a flesh-coloured creature that attacks from Newt’s magical briefcase, a white winged animal that appears to fit the description of a griffin, and then finally we get the quick glimpse at a running creature that looks a bit like a furry monkey.
In a voiceover the trailer, Jacob warns Newt of strange occurrences throughout New York which are the work of a dangerous secret society. We also learn that the escape of Newt’s magical creatures could lead to some sort of war.
Fantastic Beasts and Where To Find Them is the first stand-alone film in the Harry Potter universe, and is set to be the first in a trilogy of films about famed magizoologist Newt Scamander (played by Eddie Redmayne).
Redmayne recently described the script, which was penned by Harry Potter writer J.K. Rowling, as surprisingly “moving”.
