“Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them” is another work from J.K Rowling. Based on Rowling’s original story, Fantastic Beasts takes place in 1920s New York City, The protagonist is Newt Scamander, a magizoologist and author of a Hogwarts textbook that catalogs magical creatures.
The film was a delight to fans of the Harry Potter series with references to the movies and books. Jacob Kowalski, a no-maj or muggle, remind fans of themselves as he is whisked away to a magical world of fantastic beasts.
The year is 1926 and Scamander 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 if it were not for Kowalski, a misplaced magical case, and the escape of some of Newt’s fantastic beasts. This could mean trouble for both the wizarding and non-magical world.
One of the best scenes in the movie is at the end. When Scamander’s beast’s venom makes everything back to normal. When everything is done, Jacob Kowalski stands in the rain to say goodbye to his friends and all his memories about magic are erased. He returns to his normal life without any magic except Newt’s gift that helped him to fund his bakery.
At the end of movie, “The stories we love best do live in us forever, so whether you come back by page or by the big screen, Hogwarts will always be there to welcome you home” was shown on the screen.
