Hello everyone, Happy New Year! I don’t normally write movie reviews, but let’s make an exception and talk about…Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them. I saw this highly anticipated film a few months ago, along with some fellow J.K. Rowling fanatics, and I had been so excited.
A few viewers are unsatisfied with the film because it simply ‘ is not Harry Potter’; this is understandable, because after reading eight novels based on this certain character, we do tend to get quite attached (haha). Personally, I found all the new characters very likable, plus, some of the ‘fantastic beasts’, were quite adorable.
Again, although it isn’t Harry Potter, there are many Easter eggs hidden throughout the movie, as well as a couple references to Albus Dumbledore, Hogwarts, and The Ministry of Magic. Thankfully, the film received the same rating as Deathly Hallows Part One (7.7/10) on IMDb, so a sequel is expected in the near future. Overall, I absolutely loved it and am delighted that they made this spin off movie!
Please comment with your opinion on the film!
