Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them (2016) – Movie Review

Movie Review –

To start things off I wanted to mention that I’ve not ever been a real big Harry Potter fan; I didn’t dislike the films; they just weren’t films that held my attention well. When I saw the promotion material swarming the net talking about Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them (2016) and that the idea came from within the Harry Potter films, I wanted to see it.

Yesterday we had the time to swing into the theater and check it out. From the beginning to the end the graphics were completely off the chart, the story was fun and imaginative; certainly held our attention. The cast for Fantastic Beast were perfectly selected, the characters held their own throughout the entire movie. Honestly after watching Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them (2016), I plan to kick back this week and watch the entire Harry Potter collection just to give it another chance. Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them (2016) is a wonderful film.

Our Rating based on 1-5 Stars: 4.5 stars

IMDB Info –

The adventures of writer Newt Scamander in New York’s secret community of witches and wizards seventy years before Harry Potter reads his book in school.

Plot or Story Line –

The year is 1926 and Newt Scamander has just completed a global excursion to find and document an extraordinary array of magical creatures. Arriving in New York for a brief stopover, he might have come and gone without incident…were it not for a No-Maj (American for Muggle) named Jacob, a misplaced magical case, and the escape of some of Newt’s fantastic beasts, which could spell trouble for both the wizarding and No-Maj worlds.
