There was one thing in the most recent trailer for Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them that stood out among the rest — the mention of a certain headmaster at Hogwart’s School of Witchcraft and Wizardry, maybe you’ve heard of him? As the new spinoff takes place several decades before the events of the Harry Potter series, Dumbledore isn’t headmaster just yet, but he does get a healthy name-drop in the trailer. And that has us wondering if we’ll see (or hear of) any other familiar characters in the upcoming film.

J.K. Rowling may be done with the Harry Potter book series, but that hasn’t kept the author from indulging in and expanding its magical universe. Between the upcoming play Harry Potter and the Cursed Child and Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them, there’s no shortage of new Potter-verse materials arriving this year — but Rowling has another surprise for fans, as the author is releasing FOUR new supplementary stories to help prepare you for Fantastic Beasts.

It’s been several years since Muggles had any major new Harry Potter content to enjoy, but after a brief dry period, J.K. Rowling’s world of magic is on the verge of a major comeback. (And just in time; I was beginning to regret this lightning bolt tattoo I got on my forehead.) Potter himself returns in Harry Potter and the Cursed Child, a two-part West End stage play based on a story by Rowling, and the HPCU (that’s “Harry Potter Cinematic Universe,” y’all, c’mon) returns to big screens this fall with Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them, a prequel to the main Potter franchises based on another book by Rowling.

It’s officially 2016. Our Best of 2015 lists have all been published and the new year is upon us, which means it’s time to start looking to the future. Yes, 2015 was a particularly good year for movie fans, but 2016 looks pretty impressive too. You like Coen Bros. movies? We got one of those. You like Star Wars? Yup, one of those too. Critically acclaimed horror movies? Sure. Pixar? Of course. Movies where your favorite superheroes beat the crap out of each other? WE GOT TWO OF THOSE. We put together a quick list of the 25 movies — a mix of both blockbusters and indies — that we can’t wait to see next year. This will probably change as the year goes on (our 2015 list included Jupiter Ascending, Aloha and Tomorrowland so we’re not perfect), but based on what we know right now, this is it. Here are the movies we’re looking forward to the most in 2016, in the order of release date (those with no release date are listed in alphabetical order).

Also: sorry in advance for all the silly headlines.

The upcoming Harry Potter spinoff Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them is still almost a year away, but with Star Wars: The Force Awakens almost here, everyone is scrambling to get their big trailers attached to the biggest movie of the year. Fantastic Beasts is no exception and today we get our first look at the continuation of the Wizarding World. The only problem? It’s not much of a look.

As far as these “teaser for the teaser trailer” things go, the “announcement trailer” for Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them is a welcome change of pace. Featuring absolutely zero footage and with no hint of smug indulgence, this simple but elegant tease from Warner Bros. has us more excited about the first trailer for the upcoming film than one of those typical, obnoxious teaser-for-the-teaser-for-the-trailer videos would. Good job, WB.

‘Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them’ Will Be Most Like ‘Harry Potter and the Goblet of Fire’

Although Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them takes place in the Harry Potter universe (and is a prequel of sorts) and boasts franchise vet David Yates as director, it’s still not clear exactly how much the new film will look or feel like the cinematic world of Harry Potter. According to producer David Heyman, Fantastic Beasts will indeed evoke the Harry potter films — or at least one of them specifically, anyway.
