Last week I saw the movie “Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them.”

“Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them” fits into the world of Harry Potter created by J.K. Rowling. Ihad the prejudice what another film set in the same world would state a disaster and would ruin one of my myths. The film, however, and very interesting state.


Newt Scamander, an experienced wizard of magical creatures, arrives in New York for a short stay. While attending the rally by Mary Lou Barebone, the Second Salemiani leader, a movement that wants to eliminate all wizards and witches, lost from his suitcase a few of his animals. Animals enter the bank nearby. In the confusion of the chase Jacob Kowalski, a No-Maj, he exchanges his case with that of Scamander. Newt is stopped by Tina Goldstein, who leads him to Macusa (The Magic of the United States Congress). Here are aware of the suitcase trade, but in the meantime at Jacob’s home different creatures flee from the suitcase.

Recovered the suitcase, to check the state of health of Jacob who was bitten by one of the creatures, Tina brings Newt and Jacob at his house. Tina lives with her sister Queenie, a Legilimens of which Jacob falls in love. Newt shows Jacob the contents of the suitcase and then leads Jacob to recover a niffler and Erumpent. After entering back into the suitcase, Tina delivery suitcase Macusa.

At the same time the city is in a panic because of a Obscurus. The Auror Percival Graves to find out more news about this Obscurus asks Credence Barebone, an orphan, to investigate who guard this creature. However it is precisely Credence to contain the Obscurus. Tina and Newt try to help him. The arrival of the Auror scares the guy who gets hit by a series of spells and seems to die. Then Newt uses the revelio spell on Graves and it turns out that it is actually Grindelwald, who is arrested and taken away.

For obliviare all muggles in New York who have seen throughout this magical confusion, Newt uses his Winged Thunder, who will distribute the city a poison able to erase the memory. Jacob also is rendered oblivious and thus must give up Queenie.

The film surprised me from every point of view. The trip to the Scamander suitcase is like a ride to the zoo. All these creatures are represented in detail so as to make them totally real. Moreover, this case reminded me so much that of Mary Poppins chock full of things. The story is funny and poignant at the right point. I think the Niffler, the animal lover jewelry and precious metals, is the cutest of all. See it and let me know what you think!  😉
