With the success of the Harry Potter franchise, I wonder if fans still need to be convinced to see Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them? It’s a sort of Harry Potter prequel, and it features magic and monsters in 1920s America. What more do you need!?
Another trailer? Okay, take the jump to see it!
In 1926, Newt Scamander (Eddie Redmayne) arrives at the Magical Congress of the United States of America for a meeting with an important official. At this meeting is a magically expanded briefcase, which houses a number of dangerous creatures and their habitats. When the creatures escape from the briefcase, it sends the American wizarding authorities after Newt.
The situation threatens to strain even further the state of magical and non-magical relations, which is already in a dangerous place, due to the threatening presence of the fanatical New Salem Philanthropic Society, an extremist organization dedicated to the eradication of wizard-kind. Newt battles to correct the mistake, and the horrors of the resultant increase in violence, fear, and tension felt between magical and non-magical people.
It’s coming! I can’t wait to see this movie!
