Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them final trailer: Here's what we know so far

The final trailer for the highly anticipated film Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them just dropped.

The film stars Eddie Redmayne as Newt Scamander; Magizoologist and writer of the textbook Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them. We see Scamander travelling to America with a suitcase full of magical creatures from Britian in the 1920s.

While a lot has been speculated about the plot of the film, with JK Rowling writing the script we know it will have incredible plot twists and turns. Here's what we gauged from the final trailer:

The climate between No-Majs (non-magical people) and wizards in 1920s New York is extremely hostile. The non-magical protesters blame witches are to blame for all the unexplainable phenomenon they encounter.

There's new magic in America that we haven't seen before in the films or books.

There seems to be a connection to Gellert Grindelwald. In the Potterverse, Gellert Grindelwald was a famous dark wizard who Albus Dumbledore famously defeated in 1945, resulting in Grindelwald’s incarceration European fortress of Nurmengard.

Auror Percival Graves (played by Colin Farell) is tired of living in hiding from the No-Majs (muggles). But we wonder why Graves ripping up the streets with powerful magic after declaring: “I refuse to bow down any longer?” Does he have a negative role?

There might be a romance brewing between Scamander and Porpentina 'Tina' Goldstein.

We'll get a look at many new creatures we've never even heard of before.

Katherine Waterson (from Inherent Vice), and  Dan Fogler (Secrets and Lies) will also star in the film with director David Yates taking the helm yet again.

The film hits theaters 18 November 2016 and will be the first in a trilogy about Scamander.
