New behind-the-scenes featurette for Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them

Warner Bros. unveiled a special treat for Harry Potter fans this weekend with this new behind-the-scenes featurette from the set of Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them, promising a wild, magical and awe-inspiring new adventure. The film marks the screenwriting debut of Potter author J.K. Rowling, whose praises are sung quite fondly in this new video.

You’ll catch some glimpses of scenes being filmed and a teensy bit of footage we haven’t seen before in the above featurette, in which Eddie Redmayne, Katherine Waterston, Alison Sudol, Dan Fogler, director David Yates and producer David Heyman all speak quite highly of Rowling and their experiences working on Fantastic Beasts. The cast also gives us a little more insight into this new world, which finds magizoologist Newt Scamander caught up in quite the caper in 1920s New York when a mysterious “catalyst” unleashes many of the dangerous beasts from his magical suitcase.

Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them opens on November 18, 2016.
