Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them's Olympic trailer shows off more magical creatures

Disney dropped a new trailer for Star Wars: Rogue One during the Olympics last week, and Warner Bros. have also chosen to take advantage of the world's biggest sporting event by unveiling a new promo for its own winter blockbuster Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them

Check it out below...

The new trailer gives us a better look at the wizardry that will be on display while also revealing some fresh shots of Colin Farrell's Percival Graves and Jon Voight's Henry Shaw Sr.

While it all looks pretty entertaining, my excitement level for Fantastic Beasts isn't all that high. With that said, having just re-read the Harry Potter books (in addition to the Cursed Child script), I'm curious to see what a J.K. Rowling movie that doesn't feature Harry Potter looks like. 

Directed by David Yates and starring Eddie Redmayne, Katherine Waterston, Colin Farrell, Samantha Morton, Jon Voight, Gemma Chan, Ron Perlman, and Ezra Miller, Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them is scheduled to hit UK and US cinemas on November 18, 2016.
