About the Movie
“Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them” opens in 1926 as Newt Scamander has just completed a global excursion to find and document an extraordinary array of magical creatures. Arriving in New York for a brief stopover, he might have come and gone without incident…were it not for a No-Maj (American for Muggle) named Jacob, a misplaced magical case, and the escape of some of Newt’s fantastic beasts, which could spell trouble for both the wizarding and No-Maj worlds.

Top Critics' Reviews
Rotten: Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them turns out to be a hyperbolic name for a pretty so-so movie -- one with entertaining passages, but which mostly feels like a big-budget prequel to the better, more cohesive film that's yet to come.
Fresh: In all, the movie is a cunning and peppy surprise, dulled only by the news that no less than four sequels await.
Fresh: Yates has fresh tricks up his sleeve as he preps for four more planned films. Five years after the last Potter movie, his 20-something fans can age alongside wizards and witches again. Magical.
Fresh: The great fantasy in Fantastic Beasts is that everything can be put back how it was, no matter what happened.
This movie is pretty AWESOME!!! I loved it! Watch it now!!
Magic is back.
Let's get this out of the way first. Is it as good as Deathly Hallows? No. No, of course not. But is it an awesome movie that adds so much to the Harry Potter universe? Hell, yes. It brings all of J.K. Rowling's best writing traits and allows us another chance to feel the magic that is the wizarding world.
