Fantastic Beasts and Where To Find Them

See the first full trailer for the Harry Potter spinoff that hits theaters Nov. 18.

So here it is finally. The first full trailer for the hotly anticipated Harry Potter prequel Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them dropped on Wednesday morning (Sept. 28), debuting exclusively on The Ellen DeGeneres Show.

The teaser trailer for the Potter spinoff caused near pandemonium at ComicCon this summer and the full trailer is likely to continue to ramping up the excitement. Starring Oscar-winning actor Eddie Redmayne, Fantastic Beasts tell the story of magizoologist Newt Scamander as he makes his way to the Magical Congress of the United States of America.

Set in the 1920s, things go awry for Scamander when his magical beasts escape and he is forced to collect them. Directed by Potter veteran David Yates, Fantastic Beasts also stars Katherine Waterston, Alison Sudol, Colin Farrell, Ezra Miller and Dan Fogler. Harry Potter author J.K. Rowling wrote the screenplay for the Warner Bros. film.

The first film in a planned trilogy, Fantastic Beasts hits theaters on Nov. 18.

Watch the trailer below.
