Wands for everyone!

The newest trailer for Warner Bros.' upcoming Harry Potter spinoff film, Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them, debuted during the studio's panel at San Diego Comic-Con.

Prior to the footage being shown, star Eddie Redmyane — who plays the researcher Newt Scamander — handed out wands to each of the 6,000 fans in attendance. The film follows Scamander as he travels from England to America to study magical creatures that are local to regions across the pond. When one of his monsters gets lost in the city, however, he's forced to try and capture it before muggles discover wizarding folk.

Directed by David Yates, who also helmed the final Harry Potter films, the film also stars Colin Farrell, Ron Pearlman, Jon Voight and Katherine Waterston.

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