Also, Eddie Redmayne cast “Lumos!” during the Comic-Con panel.
The beasts were let out of the proverbial bag at Comic-Con on Saturday as Warner Bros. debuted the new trailer for Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them. The new footage doesn’t reveal anything too shocking, but does give us a closer look at the dangers Eddie Redmayne will face as Newt Scamander.
Redmayne unleashed a bit of his own magic during the Comic-Con panel, casting “Lumos!” to raise the lights in Hall H before handing out wands to every fan in the auditorium. He also revealed that seeing the Lego minifigure version of his character made him more excited than he’d felt since he was five. We also get to see more of co-star Dan Fogler in the clip. Fogler plays a muggle in the new movie, but as he said during the panel, “Han Solo wasn’t a Jedi” but you saw what he could do.
