Notes on Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them
The year is 1926, and Newt Scamander (Eddie Redmayne) 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.
Maybe. Just don't click a link. XP
- Eddie Redmayne is adorkable.
- Who is this girl?
- I don’t like her.
- Oh, she did that, didn’t she?
- I don’t like her at all.
- She doesn’t move like an auror.
- I like her sister more. Oh, a natural Legilimens.
- Jacob Kowalski would be me if I was thrust into the wizarding world with no clue whatsoever.
First half of the movie was meh.
- I want a niffler.
- And a demiguise.
- And a bowtruckle.
- And a swooping evil.
- Actually, I want all of them.
- I haven’t seen this much magic used in everyday life or used as casually since that scene at the Leaky Cauldron in the Prisoner of Azkaban.
- This is how it should be.
- People will be so lazy.
- I. WANT. NEWT. SCAMANDER’S. SUITCASE.
- Forget about trunks with multiple compartments. This suitcase is easier to carry and without it being suspicious.
- Can you imagine carrying a trunk everywhere?
- Don’t you lecture me about shrinking spells and featherlight charms. I know it was so obvious they should’ve used it in the main HP books/movies.
- I just want that suitcase.
- Narnia in a suitcase.
Second half was ASDFGHJKL;’@#$%^&*!
Beasts. Beasts everywhere.
- Woah. Not what you would’ve expected to be the culprit.
- New data to be added to HP lore!
- Okay. Porpentina is growing on me.
- Awwww. Queenie and Jacob forever.
- Newt Scamander is adorkable.
Dear J.K. Rowling
I know the screenplay is going to be published, but I want a novelization… written by YOU. Just you; no one else.
Please. Please. Please.
