J.K. Rowling invites you to explore a new ear of the wizarding world!” blares the dramatic Harry Potter-esque tagline in the new trailer for Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them. In the video, which you can watch above, Eddie Redmayne stars as Newt Scamander, the “author” of the 2001 book of the same name (actually written by Rowling, of course). Scamander endures the New York City immigrant experience, and once past Ellis Island, he meets American wizard Percival Graves (Colin Farrell) and Jacob Kowalski (Dan Fogler). Rowling wrote the script, and David Yates—director of the last four Harry Potter movies—directed. The trailer debuted last night at the MTV movie awards, and the film premieres Nov. 18.
