It's finally here! Eddie Redmayne emerged from a suitcase at the 2016 MTV Movie Awards Monday to introduce the new trailer of Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them.
The Harry Potter prequel, written by J K Rowling and directed by David Yates stars Eddie Redmayne alongside Katherine Waterston, Ezra Miller, Colin Farrell, Ron Perlman and Jon Voight.
The trailer begins with a voice-over discussing Redmayne's character, Newt Scamander, as he's shown arriving in New York: "You're an interesting man, Mr Scamander. Just like your suitcase, I think there's much more to you than meets the eye. Kicked out of Hogwarts for endangering human life with a beast yet one of your teachers argued strongly against your expulsion. I wonder what makes Albus Dumbledore so fond of you, Mr Scamander."

Upon arriving in New York, Scamander presents his suitcase to a customs official, but after flipping a switch to make it "muggle worthy," there appears to be nothing unusual about its contents.
We even get a glimpse of what seems to be a fantastic beast! A peacock-blue, winged creature emerges from a small object thrown by Newt.

The trailer also offers a glimpse of Collin Farrell's character who says, "No human could do what this thing's capable of," and ends with Redmayne hopping out of bed at the sound of a beast and climbing into his suitcase before signaling to his roommate to join him.
