🎞 Watched Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them

Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them from Warner Bros., November 18, 2016
The adventures of writer Newt Scamander in New York's secret community of witches and wizards seventy years before Harry Potter reads his book in school. Directed by David Yates. With Eddie Redmayne, Katherine Waterston, Alison Sudol, Dan Fogler.

Significantly different from the Harry Potter films, but still set in the same world. I’d watch it again, but it wasn’t as solid in story as the original series. I saw the twist at the end coming from a mile away, so sadly that wan’t a surprise.

I initially pegged Eddie Redmayne as the British Johnny Depp and wondered why they didn’t cast the latter only to realize why later in the picture.

Having seen the movie Sing earlier in the day, I note that this was the second movie of the day to feature a major structure which was demolished and then rebuilt in a timelapse sequence.
