'Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them': Everything We Learned on Our Set Visit

It's Harry's third year at Hogwarts; not only does he have a new "Defense Against the Dark Arts" teacher, but there is also trouble brewing. Convicted murderer Sirius Black has escaped the Wizards' Prison and is coming after Harry.
In mid-20s New York, Newt Scamander, the British young activist wizard, arrives in town, holding a mysterious leather suitcase which shelters a wide array of diverse and magical creatures that exist among us. Amid an already fragile equilibrium of secrecy, and the increasing disasters ascribed to the dark wizard, Gellert Grindelwald, Newt's precious suitcase will be lost--and to make matters worse--several creatures will manage to escape. Before long, this situation will catch Senior Auror Percival Graves' attention who will target Newt, in the background of an invisible, devastating, and utterly unpredictable menace that still wreaks havoc on 5th Avenue. In the end, is there a hidden agenda behind Graves' intentions; moreover, what will happen to the remaining fantastic beasts still loose in the streets?Written by
It is possible that house elves are free in America, as some elves are seen wearing regular clothing and being openly insolent towards humans without fear of reprisal. In the British wizarding world, house elves are enslaved until their owners give them proper clothing, and are forbidden to own wands (although they can perform magic without them). See more »
When Scamander arrives in New York, the Immigration officer takes his passport then turns it sideways to examine it. The old blue British passport did not have pages that were oriented sideways. See more »
Filming is beautifully done, acting superb, humor everywhere. Fantastic imagination and script by JK Rowling.
Of course, we would have loved to see our old group back on the screen, but alas, that wasn't possible. At least we can emerge our self again into the magic world, and get to meet Newt Scamander, a very interesting character. The best role is, though, the NO-MAJ. We fall in love with him the second he appears on our screen. But most of all, we want that fantastic beast who loves those shiny things.
Very well done, gets a smile on our face again. We are impatient for the next 4 parts.
