Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them

Adventure Fantasy Family


 

Set in the 1920s, Newt Scamander arrives in New York City with a briefcase full of magical creatures, only to accidentally set them loose; risking the exposure of the wizarding world.

As a pre-cursor to the adventures of everyone's favourite boy wizard, "Fantastic Beasts" gives its audience the opportunity to immerse themselves back into the world of magic - an invitation that will be excitedly accepted by all. While it is undoubtedly great to be back, due to a weak storyline and pacing issues, it becomes apparent that the magic has worn off slightly. However, what it lacks in substance is definitely made up for in style; boasting a vibrant and CGI-heavy palette that is enchanting to watch. Expecto-a-new-franchise.
