I adored this movie, it brought back my child, no Hogwarts but nonetheless, there was magic and it was amazing. It was based in New York and there were new terms and new faces.
Newt Scamander played by Eddie Redmayne did a fabulous job portraying the loving, goofy, lovable wizard that JK Rowling made for us. Katherine Waterston did an also fabulous job at portraying the new character Porpentina “Tina” Goldstein.
Newt first meets a muggle or “No-Maj” in the US portrayed by Dan Folger and he gets a hold of Newt’s case. Newt befriends him later after some events. Later, these three heroines try and capture Newt’s escaped “creatures” that have gone off into New York, while a new one is the uprising.
- Do I recommend this film for young children?
- Not really because of one scene *SPOILER* Newt and Tina were tried to be put to death and also they are scenes of abuse.
- It is not like the other Harry Potter movies, it has more adult themes, not sexual, but “real life” themes like abuse, law, and how magic was not wanted in the 60’s.
