MTV Movie Awards: Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them to debut new footage

Posted on

This year’s MTV Movie Awards just got a lot more magical.

Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them will debut a new sneak peek during Sunday night’s telecast, MTV News said Tuesday. The footage will presented by Newt Scamander himself, aka star Eddie Redmayne.

The first big-screen return to J.K. Rowling’s wizarding world since the Harry Potter saga concluded in 2011, Fantastic Beasts centers on Redmayne’s Scamander, a magizoologist who arrives in 1926 New York with a magical suitcase filled with exotic creatures. Some of those specimens escape, running loose at a time when wizards stayed hidden from the No-Maj (non-magical people in U.S. parlance, or Muggles if you’re British). 

Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them hits theaters on Nov. 18. For more on the film, revisit the first trailer above and explore EW’s cover story.

The MTV Movie Awards air Sunday night at 8 p.m. ET on MTV.
