Watch the first trailer for Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them

The teaser trailer for J.K. Rowling's Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them is here and offers the first real glimpse at cinema's return to the wizarding world.

Although the trailer doesn't give much away in turns of synopsis, it does provide a bit of a closer look at Eddie Redmayne's Newt Scamander, a magical researcher who spent the majority of his career traveling across the world to discover different kinds of magical beasts.

In this movie, directed by David Yates, Scamander is in New York City when a few of the beasts get loose and he has to track them down. Described as having a "romantic comedy, fish out of water" style of humor by the producer of the film, the movie will supposedly most resemble the fourth film in the Harry Potter franchise, Goblet of Fire.

Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them hits theaters Nov. 18, 2016.
