18 Thoughts We Had Watching The New Fantastic Beasts & Where To Find Them Clip At The 2016 MTV Movie Awards
NEW HARRY POTTER NEW HARRY POTTER NEW HARRY POTTER NEW HARRY POTTER!
The 2016 MTV Movie Awards has many magical tricks up its cinematic sleeves.
But one of its biggest show-stoppers was the world exclusive debut of clips from Suicide Squad, Captain America: Civil War and - *hyperventilates* - Fantastic Beasts & Where To Find Them.
Or as we like to call it, A NEW HARRY POTTER MOVIE ERMAHGERD.
Join us, as we run through our second-by-second thoughts of the trailer that debuted at the awards...
Excuse us, this is about to get a bit weird...
WHAT IS HAPPENING.
Oh my God it's a piece of live theatre. Men in suits with suitcases! And with a timey-wimey Instagram filter, too.
I've just realised the actual clip footage hasn't even started yet.
It's a So You Think You Can Dance-style intro - ooh, and now here' Eddie Redmayne!
Appearing out of a freaking suitcase!
He's so charming and adorable and British. BLESS HIM.
Right, here we go. CLIPPY CLIP TRAILER CLIP!
Props on the Dementor-style WB logo which tees the trailer up.
Ooh - old time New York. 30s Big Apple looks gorgeous.
Our first look at a beast! Claws! Out of the suitcase!
What's all this about New being kicked out of Hogwarts for endangering life with his beasts, then? One of his teachers argued against his expulsion, according to the narration from Colin Farrell's creepy Percival Graves. Bet you it's Dumbledore.
IT IS DUMBLEDORE!
Tell you what, Farrell's really got his intimidating voiceover on.
Newt is being checked at customs (good to know it was a ballache back then, too). Ingeniously, the suitcase has a 'Muggle Lock' mode. Nifty.
Then it's a series of familiar Harry Potter nods, with sliding brick walls (Platform 9 3/4, anyone?), floating cutlery, transmogrification, and apparition spells all hitting us right in the feels.
A tiny mole! Don't know who that is, but we feel he's going to become our new best friend.
And what a final shot - Eddie opening his suitcase and stepping down into it, before beckoning his rommate, Dan Fogler's Jacob Kowalski.
And just like that, we're done. Full of awesome special effects, intriguing characters and adorably familiar touches, we are sooooo on board.
The 2016 MTV Movie Awards, hosted by Kevin Hart and Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson air Monday, April 11 at 8pm on MTV, Sky channel 126, Virgin channel 134.
