So, if you haven’t heard, there’s this little thing called San Diego Comic Con going on right now, and a little company called Warner Brothers have spent the last few hours doing a panel there; nothing major, not much to write home about, just a few movie trailers here and there.
Also, there’s this little movie, something about a boy wizard and an evil guy without a nose, called Barry…no, Harry Potter? Of course you know it; in fact, if you where a Nineties or a Noughties child, there’s a very could chance that the Harry Potter books and films where a pivotal part of your childhood, to which you will have uncontrollable, nostalgic flashbacks whenever you hear the first few bars of Hedwigs Theme. Well, if you were one of those children, then you undoubtedly know about the upcoming spin-off trilogy Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them, the first film of which will hit our cinema screens in November, and were probably eagerly awaiting the release of a second cinematic trailer for the film; well, wait no more, as Warner Brothers ended their triumphant night at Comic Con by releasing a new trailer for the film.
The film stars Oscar Winner Eddie Redmayne as Newt Scamander, the fictional author of one of Harry Potters school textbooks, and a world renowned magizoologist, who arrives in New York in the 1920s with a briefcase full of all sorts of weird, wonderful and dangerous magical creatures, which later escape from his briefcase and threaten to reek havoc in both the Wizarding and Muggle worlds alike.
The new trailer shows more of the magic and more of the monsters than we have seen before, as well as the instantly recognisable Hedwigs Theme, the iconic opening music from all 8 of the Harry Potter films.
The script was written by none of than J.K Rowling herself, and the film directed by David Yates, the man behind all of the last four films in the main Harry Potter franchise.
The trailer, which can be viewed in full below, ends with the words that have echoed through many a millennial mind since the release of the first Harry Potter book way back in 1997…
“I want to be a wizard”.
