Eddie Redmayne appeared at the MTV Movie Awards this evening to introduce a new trailer for “Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them,” and it was very exciting. Even the theatrical introduction to the trailer was thrilling; it featured a very 1920s-esque set, some briefcase-toting men, and a special entrance from Eddie Redmayne himself. I won’t spoil all the details, but you can watch the introduction as well as the “wee glimpse” into “Fantastic Beasts” below (thanks for the video, Perez Hilton!)

Check in with us soon, because we’ll be posting an in-depth analysis of the trailer shortly. For now, we hope you feel as giddy with excitement over this latest update as we do! I must say that my eyes welled up a bit when I realized that “Hedwig’s Theme” had been woven into the “Fantastic Beasts” theme music. I wasn’t expecting it, and it just made me feel so wistful. I think it was a great creative choice, and it will definitely tug on the heartstrings of anyone who loves Harry Potter!

On the subject of music, the genius behind the film’s score was recently revealed to be the eight-times Oscar-nominated composer James Newton Howard, whose film credits include “The Hunger Games” trilogy, “The Sixth Sense,” and “Pretty Woman.” (Source: NME)

The first film in the “Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them” trilogy will be released on November 18, 2016.
