The announcement trailer has officially been released! "Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them" is coming to theaters next year, and Harry Potter fanatics everywhere (ME ME ME) are freaking out!

Star Wars fans are getting their fix, and now Harry Potter fans are, too! "Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them" is a book written by J.K. Rowling in 2001 about all of the magical creatures in the Harry Potter universe. The movie will be a spin-off and a prequel to the Harry Potter series, taking place in the 20s, 70 years before the Harry Potter series begins. In the Harry Potter books/movies, Harry actually reads "Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them" for one of his classes at Hogwarts. The movie will follow Newt Scamander, the "author" of the book, and will include all sorts of magical creatures that are featured in the novel. We haven't gotten a peek at any of these magical creatures yet, but this is only the first trailer, so there's plenty of time for more!

The movie will be released in November of 2016. I don't know how I'll be able to wait that long!!! Here's the very first trailer:
