"This film will appeal to all. It's funny, it's moving, it's thrilling."


Today at the "Celebration of Harry Potter 2016" event in Orlando, Warner Bros. released an all-new behind-the-scenes clip for the upcoming series spinoff Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them. The video showcases some new footage from the fantasy film and reveals some key plot details. Check it out:

Set in 1920s New York City, the movie stars Oscar-winner Eddie Redmayne as Newt Scamander, a "magizoologist" who embarks upon an adventure to find and document magical creatures.

The film has been adapted by JK Rowling from her own 2001 novella, which is set some 70 years before the events of the Harry Potter stories. David Yates, who made the last four Potter movies, is directing, and Redmayne's co-stars include Colin Farrell, Katherine Waterston, Ezra Miller, and Samantha Morton.

David Heyman is producing--and he has high hopes for it.

"This film will appeal to all. It's funny, it's moving, it's thrilling," he says in the video.

Fantastic Beasts comes to theaters in November 2016. Are you looking forward to it? Let us know in the comments below!
