Are you ready to step back into the magic of Harry Potter? This year, the magical world created by J.K. Rowling will return to theaters in a new film. Fantastic Beasts: The Crimes of Grindelwald is set to debut this November, and its first trailer just went live today.

And, as you can see in the slides below, there is a lot to unpack in this sneak-peek.

The action-packed trailer has a lot to show, but some of its reveals were more obvious than others. Albus Dumbledore was put on display as Jude Law introduced his younger take on the famed wizard. Much of the trailer revolved around the iconic character, but he was not alone. Newt Scamander and Gellert Grindelwald also got their due, but diehard fans of Harry Potter want more. So, ComicBook is here to breakdown everything you might have missed and those sneaky easter eggs you think you caught.

From the Deathly Hallows to the Lestrange brood, we’re dissecting all things magical for you, but do be warned! Mild spoilers can be found below!

For instance, this trailer has a blink-and-miss-it scene featuring Thestrals. The horses are seen pulling a chariot with two strange me riding it, and fans are happy to see the creatures. Audiences first met Thestrals back in Harry Potter and the Order of the Phoenix.
