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!
