Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them Teaser Is a Genuine Tease


You know, technically, “J.K. Rowling’s Wizarding World” is the amusement park section in Universal Studios. The Potter-verse isn’t called that anywhere else. But can you imagine in the age of texting, how hard it must be for Ms. Rowling to be taken seriously when she signs her name? Like, how would you read “We seriously need to pay our lead actor more, j.k.”

Anyway, kudos to this teaser for genuinely teasing, while giving out the main points we need to know, i.e. “Harry Potter stuff in New York, decades ago” and “That acclaimed actor you know from somewhere, being very English.” Plus a taste of the old John Williams theme. It’s less than any other of the recent tarilers we’ve seen this month have shown…yet in a way, that equates to more.

It also tells us the main character’s name is pronounced “skuh-MAN-der.” IMPORTANT!
