Don't expect to see the usual gang of Daniel Radcliffe, Emma Watson, and Rupert Grint, though -- this is a prequel to the Harry Potter series, although it is set in their world.

The movie adaption of J.K. Rowling's companion story looks like it's going to be full of the adventures and special effects we've become accustomed to, though.

The story follows Newt Scamander, a magizoologist with a case full of magical creatures. Eddie Redmayne stars as the lead, and is seen on the streets of 1920s New York, where some of the creatures have apparently escaped.

It's hard to know from this sneak peek if Fantastic Beasts will live up to Harry Potter, but for now, it's enough to make those of us who are nostalgic for the series happy.
