Snap! The buckle on your suitcase popped open. “Growwwlll!” came the odd sound from your suitcase. You look around making sure that nobody heard. You close the buckle of your suitcase and slowly release the air that had been subconsciously trapped in your lungs, and with cautious steps you make your way towards the double doors. Once you’re in, the sweat that accumulated on the palm of your hands subsides. The swirling in your stomach is now tolerable. You find your seat as the lights dim and the previews start. The title: “Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them” scrolls across the screen.
Newt Scamander: "Put this on."
Jacob Kowalski: "But why would I have to wear something like this?"
Newt Scamander: "Because your skull is susceptible to breakage under immense force.”
“The movie is about wizards and mythical creatures from another dimension,” says Bianca Carino, a ninth grader. Newt Scamander is the main character and he comes to visit New York and has a crazy adventure trying to round up all his creature that had escaped from his bag. Along the way he makes a few friend who help him.
Harry potter vs Fantastic Beasts
As most would know, fantastic beasts takes place decade before Harry Potter and half a world away. “I kinda feel like this movie will be more interesting than harry potter because harry potter has to do more with like the potions and spells,” bianca carino. Which is true. Fantastic beast does involve spells but it's centered around the magical creatures.
The movie is enjoyable if you're into fantasy or magical I really recommend this movie especially now because the “dark” feels you get from the movie go great with the cold weather that's present during Christmas.
Critics Consensus: Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them draws on Harry Potter's rich mythology to deliver a spinoff that dazzles with franchise-building magic all its own.
