The music. For me, this trailer is all about that Harry Potter-tinged score. I don’t think I have ever been as excited to see a film as I was to see the first Harry Potter movie. I couldn’t sleep the night before it was released, and I snuck out of school just before lunch so I could see it on opening day. There is something about hearing that score that brings all those emotions rushing back.

Of course this isn’t a Harry Potter film as such, but it is set in the same magical universe. The film focuses on the adventures of writer Newt Scamander (Eddie Redmayne) in New York’s secret community of witches and wizards, seventy years before Harry Potter studies his books at Hogwarts. The trailer looks wonderful, and I love the idea of exploring the wizarding world further, without rewriting or playing around with the original story. This should be fun.

The film is set for release in November.
