“Imperfect understanding is often more dangerous than ignorance.” Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them
Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them was awesome I truly enjoyed for 2 hours 13 minutes that it was perfectly normal to allow my imagination to run wild. At times I was in awe watching the whimsical animals run across the screen. There were so many odd caws and distinct displays in the movie these beasties provide me with a lot of easygoing pleasures. Simply irresistible fun and excitement from second to second. Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them is a must see. Oh did I mention J.K Rowlings is one of my favorite authors.

Redmayne trained with real zookeepers and animal handlers to get practice.
The cast took wand classes to learn how to properly hold them.
They also watched old Harry Potter films to get tips.
The year is 1926 and 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. The adventures of writer Newt Scamander in New York’s secret community of witches and wizards seventy years before Harry Potter reads his book in school.
