Today’s update is short and sweet because the clip above says it all. We have the first trailer for Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them!!! And please believe me when I say that I am squealing right now as I type this. The trailer is perfect as the first look at the Harry Potter spinoff because it teases a little bit of the plotline and a little bit of the characters. But it leaves plenty of fodder for the imagination. And as Harry Potter fans, we definitely have a good imagination! Eddie Redmayne looks fabulous as Newt Scamander. And the idea of the magical creatures getting loose is quite interesting because of all of the different possibilities it offers. I can only imagine what kinds of scenarios we will find some of our favorite beasts! (And now I spend the rest of my day doing exactly that!)
And can we just take a moment to enjoy J.K. Rowling’s name being on the big-screen again? Because I got chills when I saw it. Seriously. I cannot even take how excited I am for this movie! I am also pretty impressed with how quickly the turnaround has been for getting this first trailer out since filming began not that long ago. The release date is set for Nov. 18, 2016. I really don’t know how I am going to make it that long.
