Brand new footage from Fantastic Beasts was shown at tonight’s MTV Movie Awards!
The second teaser trailer for Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them debuted at this year’s MTV Movie Awards. This newest trailer had a lot of new footage and information about the movie. There are references to Dumbledore and Hogwarts and it is revealed that Newt Scamander had been expelled from Hogwarts for “endangering human life”. Watch the trailer below:
Eccentric magizoologist Newt Scamander (Oscar winner Eddie Redmayne) comes to New York (for a reason we won’t disclose) with his trusty weathered case. This case is one of those way-way-way-bigger-on-the-inside magical devices, and within are expansive habitats for a collection of rare and endangered magical creatures from Newt’s travels around globe. He discovers the American wizarding community is fearfully hiding from Muggles (who are called “No-Maj” in the States) and the threat of public exposure is an even graver concern than in the UK (remember the Salem witch trials?). Fantastic Beasts is the story of what happens when this uniquely skilled English wizard travels to wiz-phobic America and a variety of his creatures, some quite dangerous … get out of their case.
