Reasons Why I Loved Fantastic Beasts and Where To Find Them

Its the movie Potter fans have been waiting for; a prequel like no other.


Like any good Hufflepuff, I was pretty excited to see my house being represented well, and apparated down to the cinema on the day the film was released, and here are a few of the things that I thought made this movie properly magical – don’t worry, its spoiler free!

It wasn’t Harry Potter

While my excitement for this movie came from my love of the Harry Potter, this film felt nothing like a classic Potter.

There were no ‘for the sake of it’ references

You know how when you get sequels/prequels that are set in totally different times, one of the writers decides to put in a bunch of references to an original character that isn’t really necessary and you know they’re just trying and failing to be ‘relevant’? Nope, there was none of that and it was fab.

New vocabulary

Again, rather than just sticking to all the wizarding terms we’re grown to understand, there are a lot of new phrases and references that we’ve not heard before, which given how most language changes over time, is perfectly understandable given the date of this setting vs the Hogwarts years we know all to well

Eddie Redmayne

He just plays the part so well. A number of actors could have produced a number of different portrayals of Newt, but boy does Eddie hit the nail on the head!

Magical effects

With technology as it is these days, its easy for film makers to fall into the trap of overdoing their special effects, which results in unnecessary and unrealistic scenes, but while this film is packed with magical moments, at no point so any of these spells look out of place.

The beasts

Its quite easy to fall in love with adorable creatures in films, but when they’re also magical and full of personality, I defy anyone not to walk out of the cinema not wanting a niffler.

It gives you all the feels

You’ll laugh, you’ll cry, you’ll gasp out loud.. You’ll love every second of it.

Have you seen it yet? Let me know what you thought!
