The newest trailer for the next adventure in the wizarding world has been released, and finally gives a good look at all those fantastic beasts. In addition to showing many more of the titular beasts than we have previously seen, we also get a much closer look at the real conflict of the story, as Colin Farrell takes center stage and sets up what has the potential to be much bigger than a few loose monsters. Check out the trailer now.
While the trailer opens up with Eddie Redmayne's Newt Scamander answering for letting a bunch of magical creatures loose, that's not the only thing our hero will be dealing with in Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them. While this trailer shows many different, special effects heavy creatures, the real conflict of Fantastic Beasts will be among whiches and wizards who are tired of hiding from the rest of the world. It would seem that this is what the story will really be about. The trailer's focus on this side of things makes this one much more dark and ominous than the previous trailers have been. Also, hey, that's Ezra Miller!
If all you had seen about Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them had been the trailers, you would have assumed that the movie really was just about a bunch of creatures getting lost, and the quest to try and recover them all. However, the deeper story is now coming out as we creep a little closer to the film's actual release date. There appear to actually be two different plots going on here. The only real question is, how are they related?
However, when it comes to those magical creatures, we do get a great look at several of them for the first time. We also get some new looks at some of the creatures that have been crawling around since the beginning.
Another of the more ominous moments is when Newt Scamander says he won't let "another one" of them die. We would assume that he's talking about the magical creatures that he's trying to recapture. It would seem that either wizards, or possibly terrified no-maj humans, have been killing the creatures rather than capturing them. The Harry Potter series got fairly dark as it went along, but it would seem that Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them will be starting out that way, with people or creatures dying out of the gate.
