With Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them slated to open in less than two weeks, Warner Bros. has now released a batch of new clips and more than seven minutes of glorious B-roll footage.

The first of five planned movies, the Harry Potter prequel is set in New York City in the 1920s and follows the adventures of magizoologist Newt Scamander (Eddie Redmayne) and a slew of brand-new quirky characters, including: Porpentina Goldstein (Katherine Waterston) and her sister Queenie (Alison Sudol), No-Maj (the American version of Muggle) Jacob Kowalski (Dan Fogler), Percival Graves (Colin Farrell), Credence Barebone (Ezra Miller) and his mother Mary Lou (Samantha Morton), Gnarlack (Ron Perlman) and more. Keep your eyes peeled for a cameo by Johnny Depp, who officially joined the sequel last week in a mystery role; although all signs point to him being the dark wizard Gellert Grindelwald.  

Dig into the new clips and B-roll footage below (from everything I’ve seen so far, the movie looks like a lotta magical fun), and let us know what you think. Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them will open on Nov. 18:
