The year is 1926 and Newt Scamander has just completed a global excursion to find and document an extraordinary array of magical creatures. Arriving in New York for a brief stopover, he might have come and gone without incident…were it not for a No-Maj (American for Muggle) named Jacob, a misplaced magical case, and the escape of some of Newt’s fantastic beasts, which could spell trouble for both the wizarding and No-Maj worlds.

One of my most anticipated films of last year was Fantastic Beasts And Where To Find Them, my boyfriend took me to the midnight screening as an early birthday present. So I know this review is incredibly late, but alas life and other things piled up and catching up on reviews fell to the wayside.
Attending the midnight screening was incredible, being in a room full of Potter-heads, all equally excited about this extension of the universe that defined our childhood; it’s the best thing. It’s one of the reasons I love attending pop culture conventions, the sense of community and ease you feel when surrounded by people you know don’t think you strange for fangirling over things. It’s the best feeling. So to say I was excited about this film is an understatement.
