Though earlier trailers have been coy about showing Newt Scamander’s magical menagerie, the new “Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them” teaser revealed the titular beasts in spades. Collider got their hands on a few images from the trailer, including some new looks at magical creatures from all around the world.
The trailer introduced a few new beasts, including a Thunderbrid, an Occamy and a Demiguise (pictured in the same order below). Though this is our first look at a Thunderbird, it most certainly is not the first time “Harry Potter” mastermind J.K. Rowling has included them in her work; Thunderbird is the name of a House at Ilvermorny School of Witchcraft and Wizardry, America’s version of Hogwarts.
Some of the species of magical creatures pictured below don’t exactly belong in a menagerie, per se; for instance, Ron Perlman’s Gnarlak is a goblin, a magical race fans may recognize from Gringotts Bank in the original “Harry Potter” series. The images also show a House Elf, a member of Dobby’s species.
Set in 1920s New York, “Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them” is an expansion of the “Harry Potter” universe that centers on magizoologist Newt Scamander (Eddie Redmayne), whose textbook is later used by Harry, Ron, Hermione and the other students at Hogwarts.
Directed by David Yates, “Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them” opens Nov. 16.
