Overview

This spin-off of the HARRY POTTER franchise jumps back in time to explore the wizarding world of 1926 New York, which is being threatened by both mystical acts of destruction and a group of extremist No-Majs (the American term for Muggles, i.e. those unable to use magic). Author Newt Scamander (Eddie Redmayne) arrives in the city as part of a global study of fantastic beasts, but he gets caught up in this conflict when some of the magical creatures in his care are accidentally released. Katherine Waterston, Alison Sudol, Dan Fogler, Colin Farrell, Ezra Miller, and Johnny Depp co-star in this fantasy adventure, which was directed by David Yates (who helmed four of the HARRY POTTER films) and adapted for the screen by J.K. Rowling from her own book.

Reviews:
"[A] smoothly assembled, menagerie-themed offshoot from the HARRY POTTER cinematic universe....A lively, fast-paced adventure that balances high-spirited whimsy and darkly brooding atmosphere in the usual Rowling tradition." - 11/17/2016 Los Angeles Times


3 stars out of 4 -- "You will quickly know if you feel the Potter magic if you smile when a snippet of 'Hedwig’s Theme' -- named for Harry’s owl -- is heard early on the soundtrack or if you suddenly sit up when the name 'Lestrange' is mentioned." - 11/18/2016 RogerEbert.com


"[I]ts phantasmagorical special effects are easy on the eyes." -- Grade: B- - 11/12/2016 Entertainment Weekly


3 stars out of 5 -- "[T]hanks to Rowling’s capacity for invention and some utterly glorious new beasts like kleptomaniac platypus the Niffler, the gamble largely succeeds -- and, as you’d expect, it looks dazzling doing it." - 11/17/2016 Empire


"[O]verall the film charts a new path through familiar magical terrain. Instead of schoolchildren learning their craft, the protagonists here are fully formed wizards..." - 11/17/2016 The Atlantic


"[A] juicily enjoyable crowd-pleaser that works....Rowling proves to be a good, sharp hand with dialogue..." - 11/17/2016 Boston Globe


3 stars out of 5 -- "[I]t is an exceedingly solid franchise-opener that builds a new world with enough bridges to the established Potterverse to keep the devoted happy." - 11/12/2016 Total Film


4 stars out of 5 -- "This highly entertaining twist on jazz age America breathes fresh life into the Potter franchise -- and, with its themes of society divided and the persecution of minorities, the film finds itself to be perfectly timed." - 11/20/2016 The Guardian
