With its release only two weeks away, Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them is finally ready to spill some of its secrets — including, as reported earlier today by Deadline, that Johnny Depp appears in the film, and will factor into its already announced sequel. Hot on the heels of that news, three new exclusive clips from the David Yates-directed fantasy adventure have premiered online (via Uproxx), two of which show off some of the characters’ most magical abilities.

To get fans in on the action, Warner Bros asked Twitter followers to figure out some of the spells featured in the film by using emojis; correct guesses led to the debut of new movie scenes. In the unlocked clip below, we get an early look at one of the many fantastic beasts — the money-eating Niffler — that escape from the overstuffed briefcase of Eddie Redmayne’s Newt Scamander.

The clip unlocked prior to “Niffler,” meanwhile, focused on Samantha Morton’s magic-wielding Mary Lou, who flaunts her extraordinary baking skills in the kitchen.

And then there’s co-star (and self-described “Harry Potter nerd”) Ezra Miller, who plays Credence Barebone, the sidekick to Colin Farrell’s evil Percival Graves. His clip gets us up to speed on Gellert Grindelwald, a villainous wizard who was defeated in a duel by Albus Dumbledore, and who “might be connected” to the 1920s-era action found in Fantastic Beasts.

Together, these three clips should at least temporarily satisfy Potter fans’ hunger for Fantastic Beasts footage. The full-length feature, co-starring Katherine Waterston, Dan Fogler, Ron Perlman, Jon Voight, and yes, Johnny Depp, will materialize in theaters on Nov. 18.
