A new trailer for the ever expanding wizarding world film was just released. Eddie Redmayne will lead the American Wizarding World set to make it’s debut in November of this year.
He will be playing Newt Scamander, an expelled student of Hogwarts who is on the run from American Wizarding Authorities. He carries a briefcase with him that is filled with a number of magical creatures and beasts. When these escape it sends the magical and non-magical relations into a state of panic. It is mentioned in the trailer that his teacher Albus Dumbledor is the only one who stood by his side during his expulsion. This along with the old New York setting shows that this movie is to take place quite awhile before the events of Harry Potter.
