Fantastic Beasts' honest trailer is misery for Muggles

Honest trailers have returned and this time they've cast a horrible hex on Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them.

If you're a Potterhead Muggle - or No-Maj, whatever you identify as - you might want to look away now, because this might sting a bit.

ScreenJunkies are not a fan of Eddie Redmayne's whispering as Newt Scamander... or his whispering as any other character ever come to think of it.

They also enjoyed poking fun at leading lady Tina (or "Boremione") for being, well, pretty dull, and also the largely British cast despite the film being set in America.

They also comment on the thinly-veiled plot and wonder how it will manage to survive five whole films.

However, Potterheads everywhere will know that it spans a large history of nineteen years and will even tackle Dumbledore's relationship with dark wizard Gellert Grindelwald, who will be played by Johnny Depp.

A controversial choice, obviously, and that's not just because he's sporting a rather pale face - though that's probably one aspect we DO agree with ScreenJunkies on.

The sequel is set to begin shooting in the UK and Paris this summer, with the action shifting from New York for the follow-up.

Fantastic Beasts 2 will introduce us to the young Albus Dumbledore as his journey begins, as Newt's adventures continue.

Fantastic Beasts 2 will be released on November 16, 2018.
