Sadie Gennis

If you're anything like us, you're counting the days untilFantastic Beasts and Where to Find Themis released. Fortunately, this new three-minute sneak peek is helping the time go by much faster.

The featurette takes Harry Potter fans behind the scenes of the upcoming spin-off, which stars Eddie Redmayne as Newt Scamander, a British magizoologist who accidentally looses a case full of magical creatures upon 1920s New York City. The video also features a first look at Colin Farrell as the auror Percival Graves, and introduces Newt's ragtag team of helpers: Tina (Katherine Waterston), her sister Queenie (Alison Sudol) and Jacob (Dan Fogler), a war veteran and muggle, or no-maj as they're known in the States.

Fantastic Beasts was written by J.K. Rowling and directed by Harry Potter vet David Yates. It also stars Ezra Miller, Jon Voight, Ron Perlman, Samatha Morton, Carmen Ejogo, Jenn Murray and Faith Wood-Blagrove. The film hits theaters on November 18.
