After 'Harry Potter', JK Rowling's magical 'Fantastic Beasts'

Watch the trailer reveal more about Newt Scamander

Eddie Redmayne brought the magic to the 2016 MTV Movie Awards, introducing a new trailer for the upcoming Harry Potter spinoff 'Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them.'

Packed with new footage, the trailer reveals some more information about Redmayne's bookish Scamander: a quick glimpse inside his suitcase reveals a Hufflepuff scarf.

He was apparently expelled from school for his beastly obsession. And, oh yeah - Harry Potter legend himself Albus Dumbledore has taken a liking to him.

Though 'Fantastic Beasts' is set in '20s New York, it still holds much of the magical tone from the original Harry Potter films - obvious touches of spell-casting galore - while adding in necessarily period pieces.

J.K. Rowling, the author of the Harry Potter books and 'Fantastic Beasts,' wrote the screenplay.

It also stars Dan Fogler, Katherine Waterston, Alison Sudol, Ezra Miller and Colin Farrell. Harry Potter vet David Yates is directing.

Rowling also serves as a producer, along with Neil Blair, David Heyman, Steve Kloves, and Lionel Wigram. Tim Lewis exec produces.

If that wasn't enough, the MTV Movie Awards also saw the debuts of new trailers for 'Captain America: Civil War' and 'Suicide Squad.'

'Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them' hits theaters on Nov. 18 in the US.
