Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them takes us to a new era in J. K. Rowling’s wizarding world, decades before Harry Potter. There are growing dangers in the wizarding world of 1926 New York. Something mysterious is leaving a path of destruction in the streets, threatening to expose the wizarding community to the Second Salemers, a fanatic faction of “No-Majs” (American for “Muggles”) bent on eradicating them. Unaware of the rising tension, Newt Scamander arrives in the city nearing the end of a global excursion to research and rescue magical creatures, some of which are safeguarded in the hidden dimension of his deceptively nondescript leather briefcase. But potential disaster strikes when unsuspecting No-Maj Jacob inadvertently lets some of Newt’s beasts loose in a city already on edge. “Rowling and Yates have given us a terrifically good-natured, unpretentious and irresistibly buoyant film. There’s a scene in a speakeasy where someone orders ‘six shots of giggle-water.’ This film felt to me like twelve.” (The Guardian)
