Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them

I am very late getting to the party with this movie.  The book Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them by J.K. Rowling was advertised as a guide, a textbook of sorts that related to the Potter stories.  At the time I didn’t have an interest in the books as there wasn’t a story line.  I was a straight up Harry Potter fan and this prequel, such as it is, just didn’t appeal.

So now I am just getting around to seeing the first movie.  Loved it!

Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them has a few stars you may be familiar with Eddie Redmayne, Colin Farrell, Samantha Morton and Johnny Depp.  I loved the characters Queenie and Jacob – I’m happy to know they will be in the second movie.


Now I have to wait for the next movie, The Crimes of Grindelwald where Jude Law stars as Albus Dumbledore.  Looking forward to that one.
