I recently watched Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them and if you didn’t know, this movie takes place before the events of the Harry Potter series and it takes place in the late 1920’s. I am really excited to share my NON SPOILER thoughts and feelings about this movie and I hope you enjoy!
Seeing that Warner Bros sign with the familiar, eerie Harry Potter music brought back so many memories and it was just a fantastic start to the film. We start off with introductions of the characters who are each individually amazing and unique. I have to say my favourite characters were Newt, who is the character’s point of view we follow and also Jacob, his muggle “sidekick”. Before going into the film, I had pretty medium expectations and I had the idea that it would start off slow but the beginning was anything but slow! It was funny and fast paced and had me interested as they threw us into the middle scenes. I didn’t expect this but there were some hilarious moments throughout the film that were absolutely priceless, and they honestly made the film 10x better. The ending was great, and made me squeal with excitement because of how it ended, and because it got me super excited for the next upcoming movies! Overall the film exceeded my expectations and I am itching to run back tot he theatre to watch it again…but anyways I highly recommend you to watch this movie whether you are a Harry Potter fan or not because it is honestly a magical experience. After thinking about it for a bit, I had decided to give this film a 9/10 stars because it was just amazing and entertaining and I couldn’t ask for much more!
