The cast and crew of November’s Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them arrived at San Diego Comic-Con on Saturday with a treat for fans in attendance: wands. Even better: star Eddie Redmayne led the crowd in casting a Lumos Maxima spell.
A photo of Redmayne on stage made it onto Twitter via the film’s official account.
Set in the Wizarding World, but long before Harry, Ron, and Hermione matriculated through Hogwarts, Fantastic Beasts stars Redmayne as Newt Scamander, a magizoologist who comes to New York with a bag full of fantastical creatures.
Harry Potter author J.K. Rowling wrote the script for Beasts with David Yates, who was behind the camera for the final four Harry Potter films, directing.
The film is out in theaters on Nov. 18.
