I went into this movie with very specific expectations. I wanted a movie about magical animals, and Newt Scamander finding them in New York City. That isn’t quite what I got, but I still really enjoyed myself.
If you’re like me, Fangirls, you grew up in Hogwarts with Harry, Ron, and Hermione. You attended magical classes, you fought the Dark Lord, and you loved every moment of it (ok, almost every moment…seriously J.K. were the giant spiders necessary?). And when it was all over, you cried as your characters went on with their lives but you wouldn’t see it. You wouldn’t be joining this magical world again to see new creatures and learn new spells. Until now, that is. The first trailer for the new series in the magical world, Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them, was released this past weekend. And again, if you’re like me, you watched with wide eyes and fond memories.
