Recently, I wrote an article on BlastingNews about this film! I have been excited for this film ever since I knew it was coming out and I wrote a post asking who else was excited:
*:D read this to find out just how excited I first was!!*
Ever since Harry Potter ended I have been gutted to be fair, it was (and always will be) one of my favourite film series’, it connected to my childhood! And made it that much more exciting and magical! J.K.Rowling made my childhood that much more exciting due to these films and books :’) it always reminds me of being at sleepovers with my nan, munchies in bed and HP book in hand <3!! We still chat about doing that now, it was just lovely.
So Fantastic Beasts I knew would fill this gap that HP had caused, but after hearing certain critics not being particularly nice about it, I was so hesitant!!! I’m pleased I didn’t listen though as this film was AMAZING! Eddie Redmayne plays Newt Scamander an inquisitive wizard going around the world collecting “Fantastic Beasts” and plans to write a book on them when he’s seen enough. Newt finds himself in New York on the search for an unusual birthday gift and in my eyes there could be no-one better to play him as he fits his scatty, awesome character and the way he connects with these “beasts” is amazing! He looks after them so well and they have such a connection with him. But, Newt’s friend Jacob Kowalski (who’s depicted by Dan Fogler) is so sooo funny and he made my partner, Paul, laugh a hell of a lot! We just really loved how their characters get along! He’s evident that he is Newts friend and it’s just so lovely to see them bounce off of one another.
Now, I’m not going to go into tooooo much detail about the film because I don’t want to ruin it for anyone reading who hasn’t seen it! But these are a few of the beats in the film:
Beautiful right? My absolute favourites are the Niffler and Demiguise because they’re just SO CUTE!!!! ❤
A Niffler is a little guy that looooves gold and shinny things! When he gets free he likes to run around to the first shinny thing in site. Then the Demiguise is just so damn cute! He turns invisible to begin with and then has his little bag and also likes shinny things too. But, he has such adorable eyes it’s unreal I fell in love with him and Newt also likes him too, he looks at him so adorably.
Look, AGAIN! ❤
So, if you love HP I really think this is the film for you. I think only TRUE HP fans will fall in love with this film, because it has a fair few HP related facts in it and it just gives you all the fuzzy feelings! So please, go check it out!
With love, Charlotte x (and Newt!)
