The adventures of writer Newt Scamander in New York’s secret community of witches and wizards. This is set about 70 years before Harry Potter reads his book in school. It’s the middle of the 20s and the times are troubled since the already fragile equilibrium of secrecy of the world of wizard are unsettled and are at a risk of being exposed. When creatures from Newt’s suitcase escapes and creates disasters the MACUSA Congress struggles to maintain the balance. Newt needs to catch all his creatures before the authorities catch up to him and his creatures.
This was a fantastic movie; it immediately throws you into the Harry Potter world. This is a little different from the main Harry Potter franchise there was more on the magical creatures and it was set before Harry went to school and studied the book. The filming was superb, the cast was amazing and the acting was just out of this world. I couldn’t wait to see all the magical creatures on the big screen again and having that little taste of the magical world again. I wasn’t disappointed. I would highly recommend watching this. Although I would have preferred the film to be in the UK rather than the States, though.
