Getting caught smuggling dangerous animals into the U.S. is never good, but it's especially bad when you're a wizard at risk of violating the International Statute of Wizarding Secrecy. Add in a tense political climate, and the situation goes from bad to worse.

That's what we have to look forward to in J.K. Rowling's "Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them," as we can see in new clips released Monday by Warner Bros. Pictures. The sneak peek videos show Newt Scamander (Eddie Redmayne) landing in hot water thanks to a "No-Maj" (the American term for "Muggle") named Jacob.With Newt's magical creatures on the loose, he knows he's in for all kind of problems. He tries to get some help, but unfortunately, it looks like the price is too high.The accident with Newt's suitcase doesn't seem very accidental to some. In fact, he's suspected of having very dire motives -- ones that connect him to a dangerous character introduced in the Harry Potter series."Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them" hits theaters on Nov. 18.
