MTV Movie Awards: Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them to debut new footage
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).
The MTV Movie Awards air Sunday night at 8 p.m. ET on MTV.
