On the loose in New York

FAN­TAS­TIC BEASTS AND WHERE TO FIND THEM

Jamaica Gleaner - - ENTERTAINMENT -

THE YEAR is 1926 and Newt 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 ... were it not for a No-Maj 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.

Fan­tas­tic Beasts and Where to Find Them is a Bri­tish/Amer­i­can fan­tasy film directed by David Yates and dis­trib­uted by Warner Bros Pic­tures. A spin-off of the Harry Pot­ter film se­ries, the film was pro­duced and writ­ten by J.K. Rowl­ing (in her screen­writ­ing de­but), in­spired by her book of the same name.

The film stars Academy Award win­ner Eddie Red­mayne

as Newt Sca­man­der, with Kather­ine Water­ston, Dan Fogler, Ali­son Su­dol, Ezra Miller, Academy Award nom­i­nee Samantha Mor­ton, Academy Award win­ner Jon Voight, Car­men Ejogo and Colin Far­rell in sup­port­ing roles.

Newt Sca­man­der’s (Eddie Red­mayne) New York stopover turns up­side down in ‘Fan­tas­tic Beasts and Where to Find Them’.
