Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them
More magic from the pen of JK Rowling
Move over Harry Potter, JK Rowling has conjured up another wizard of a hero, Newt Scamander. Played with charm by Eddie Redmayne, his tale takes place in 1926 New York, where a menagerie of magical creatures breaks loose from his suitcase. Director David Yates handles all the action and adventure supremely well, but it’s Rowling who deserves the most kudos. It’s her first screenplay in a proposed five-film series and if they are as captivating as this, we are in for
a treat. Dir: David Yates 2016, 12, 140min
And here Redmayne’s wizard, too!
