Fantastic Beasts And Where To Find Them…Did It Make The Cut?

Even though the world of Harry Potter is vast with a rich history behind it, when it comes to the films, one particular person seems to hold the majority of the spotlight and those have been pretty successful right? So can a film not starring THE Harry Potter really hold up with the public? Actually, yes.

Fantastic Beasts And Where To Find Them really gives insight into how far the wizarding world really goes and how much more there is than just Harry Potter. Fantastic Beasts didn’t just give us a new face, it showed a whole new world set in a little known city called New York. One of the things I absolutely loved about it honestly was the differences! Between the language (like the word No-Maj instead of Muggle) and the different ways the societies function really is a step in the right direction to show that there is more to the stories than just Hogwarts!

The cast also amazingly brought all of these characters to life giving the world a more historical type of romance and being in 1920’s New York, how could you possibly not? And with the bright faces of Eddie Redmayne, Katherine Waterson, Dan Fogler, and Alison Sudol, how could this not be a win? Aaaaand mixing that with the array of familiar yet imaginative creatures (like puffer fish type rhinos and snake dragons with wings) roaming around the inside of Newt Scamander’s briefcase, it is something everyone can literally enjoy.

If you haven’t bought a ticket yet, I highly recommend it for this movie is perfect for the big screen!
