Warner Bros. Pictures has unleashed the first trailer for Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them.

The video embedded above offers glimpses of Eddie Redmayne as the magical zoologist, Newt Scamander. Fans of J.K. Rowling’s Harry Potter book series will recognize the character as the author of a textbook incorporated into the curriculum at the Hogwarts School of Witchcraft and Wizardry.

Other actors who have signed on for this project include Colin Farrell as a wizard named Graves, Dan Fogler as a muggle named Jacob and Jenn Murray in a mystery role. This Harry Potter spinoff, scripted by Rowling herself, will hit theaters on Nov. 18, 2016.
