Colin Farrell makes wizardly debut in new trailer for POTTER spin-off

The moment every Hogwarts loving muggle has been waiting for has finally arrived as the trailer for the much anticipated Harry Potter spin-off Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them has officially been released.

A teaser for the Hollywood blockbuster was shown at Comic-Con in San Diego this weekend where the film’s director David Yates handed out magic wands to thousands of lucky fans.  

He was joined at the convention by Academy Award winner Eddie Redmayne – who will play magizoologist Newt Scamander in the flick – and our very own Colin Farrell, who is set to earn his wand as a character named Graves.   

Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them is based on the 2001 book of the same name which JK Rowling wrote under the pseudonym Newt Scamander and while the story does not actively feature the original Harry Potter characters, it does focus on the magical creatures from the Harry Potter series.

The movie is set in New York in 1926 and tracks what happens when a collection of magical creatures are accidently unleashed upon the city.

Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them is set for release this November.
