A new trailer for Harry Potter spin-off Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them premiered last night at the MTV Movie Awards.

The trailer introduces Percival Graves - played by Colin Farrell - who can be heard addressing Eddie Redmayne's Newt Scamander, the protagonist.

“Just like your suitcase, I think there's much more to you than meets the eye,” he said, as a creature appears to start opening the catch of the bag.

The film will bring to life J. K Rowling’s 2001 book, which was itself a spin-off from the Harry Potter series, purporting to be a textbook issued to students at Hogwarts.

Oscar-winner Redmayne, who scooped an Academy Award last year for his role as Stephen Hawking in The Theory of Everything, plays Newt Scamander, author of the textbook.

The film is due to be released in the UK on 18 November this year. Will you be going to watch it?
