The first trailer and poster for the "Harry Potter" prequel have dropped, and unsurprisingly, the Internet is in a tizzy. 

"Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them" follows Eddie Redmayne's character, Newt Scamander, who travels to 1920s New York with a suitcase full of magical creatures. Three guesses what happens to the case. (Video via Warner Bros. / "Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them")

"It was open?" asked a character in the "Fantastic Beasts and Where To Find Them" trailer.

"Just a smidge," said Newt Scamander.

The trailer had Potter fans freaking out on Twitter, with pretty much everyone having a positive reaction to it. 

"Harry Potter" author JK Rowling returned to write the screenplay for the movie. It's the first story set in the wizarding world that takes place outside the United Kingdom. (Video via NBC)

This will be the first time fans get to see the American wizarding community, which is apparently desperately trying to hide from non-magical people, or No-Majs. We still prefer "muggles."

Along with Redmayne, the movie stars Katherine Waterston and Colin Farrell. The movie hits theaters in November 2016.
