Here’s The One ‘Harry Potter’ Connection You Probably Missed In The New ‘Fantastic Beasts And Where To Find Them’ Trailer

Newt Scamander (Eddie Redmayne) may be bringing us face-to-face with magical creatures we’ve only ever read about in the upcoming Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them, but it looks like he’s also going to be reuniting us with a few magical creatures we’re already familiar with!

During San Diego Comic-Con this weekend, the cast and crew of Fantastic Beasts premiered a new trailer for the highly anticipated film to an enormous crowd of Potter heads, and it features a blink-and-you’ll-miss-it cameo from a well-known creature.


For a fleeting moment at about the 30 second mark, the preview offers up a quick shot of a house elf working on a wool machine.

In the original Potter stories, house elves have played a pretty big role in the plot of the story. There’s the fiercely loyal Dobby, for example, who literally lays down his life for Harry in Deathly Hallows. There’s also the hard to love Kreacher, whom Harry inherits after Sirius dies.

We’re not sure if house elves will play a role in Newt’s story, or if we’ll get introduced to another memorable one, but it was still fun to see another house elf in this new trailer nevertheless!

Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them hits theaters November 18, 2016.
