The first full-length trailer for the Harry Potter prequel-slash-spinoff, Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them premiered at the MTV Movie Awards last night, and now it's viewable for everyone else who didn't stay up to watch the broadcast.

The film centers around Newt Scamander (Eddie Redmayne), a writer traveling from England to New York City for a meeting with the Magical Congress. Though the main event in the movie will naturally be said fantastic beasts, it also features plenty of fashion from 1920s-era New York City.
