Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them trailer: First glimpse of JK Rowling's Harry Potter spin-off

Harry Potter fans have been given the first glimpse of spin-off film Fantastic Beasts and Where To Find them, after a teaser trailer was uploaded to YouTube.

The film - starring Eddie Redmayne, Katherine Waterston and Colin Farrell - is written by JK Rowling and exists in the same wizarding world lived in by Harry and his Hogwarts friends.

The tense trailer begins with a wizard using the charm "lumos maxima" - a feature of the Potter films.

It then reveals Eddie Redmayne - who plays main character Newt Scamander, a magizoolist and author of the book which gives the film its name.

Despite the early teaser, the film - directed by David Yates - will not be in UK cinemas until 18 November 2016.
