Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them


In 1920s New York City, Newt Scamander (Eddie Redmayne) arrives from Britain carrying a peculiar suitcase that turns out to be bursting with magical creaturesā€¦ In her screenwriting debut, J.K. Rowling returned to the world of Harry Potter, which had been explored in eight previous movies; this is a separate tale that takes place decades before the events at Hogwarts. Pleasingly familiar to Potter fans, perhaps a tad too formulaic for others, but still very enjoyable. Spectacular visual effects in 3D recreate New York of the day and bring us colorful beasts. In a sweet performance, Dan Fogler is the stand-out of the cast.
