Seventy years before Harry Potter is born, Newt Scamander (Eddie Redmayne) has just completed a world trip to find and document all of the magical creatures. He arrives in New York with a case of magical creatures, and some of them accidentally escape.

Is The Plot Interesting? 

I could not have liked the plot any more. Like J.K. Rowling said, this movie is an extension of the wizarding world and Fantastic Beasts And Where To Find Them is a perfect way to pull us back into the world that we all love.


Is The Acting Good?

The thing that got to me the most was that this movie is cast so well. Eddie Redmayne as Newt Scamander is just great. And I think Dan Fogler’s Jacob Kowalski is now everyone’s favourite No-Maj.

Is The Directing Good?

I wouldn’t mind if David Yates directed all the future Harry Potter movies because he understands this amazing world J.K. Rowling has created so well. And he’s helped her bring this world to life in such an incredible way.


Is The Cinematography Good?

The editing is, on a couple of occasions, a little choppy. The style of the movie is a lot like the Harry Potter movies, but it defines itself enough that we realise that this really is a new era of magic.

Is It Worth Watching?

I can’t put into words how much I loved this movie. It had everything that I loved about the Harry Potter movies and more. Fantastic Beasts And Where To Find Them is an instant classic.


Worrying means you suffer twice.
