Tonight sees the airing of MTV Movie Awards (which, yes, were taped last night in Burbank on the WB lot), and so it is that Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them star Eddie Redmayne was on hand to unveil an exclusive clip from the upcoming Harry Potter prequel. But I presume most of you are Hogwarts alums and don’t need us to belabor the point – watch the clip here now.
Directed by Harry Potter directorial alum David Yates and written by Harry Potter creator JK Rowling, the film sees Redmayne as preeminent “magizoologist” Newt Scamander, who stops in New York following his travels to find and document magical creatures. Katherine Waterston (Inherent Vice), Alison Sudol (Transparent), Dan Fogler (The 25th Annual Putnam County Spelling Bee), Ezra Miller (Trainwreck), and Colin Farrell (True Detective) also star. The film hits theaters November 18.
