'Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them': Everything We Learned on Our Set Visit
IMDb worked its magic to apparate onto the set of Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them. Check out exclusive interviews with the cast and creators as well as new pictures and teasers from the movie and beyond.
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
In the Comic Relief version of "Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them," the About the Author section mentions that Newt graduated from Hogwarts. However, in the movie Graves mentions that he was expelled. See more »
At the scene of a building collapse a cop tells the crowd it isn't a gas explosion because there is no smell of gas.
But natural gas is both odorless and colorless, adding odor to the gas was globally adopted after the New London School explosion of 1937.
So even if there had been a gas leak or explosion, the cop would not have been able to smell gas. See more »
This is my first review on IMDb. I felt compelled to do so after reading Empire's underwhelming 3 Star review (does their opinion count for anything any more?), then going on to watch the movie myself last night.
It was excellent. Heart-warming and charming with extremely likable lead characters. The story wasn't too heavy - enough to keep things ticking along - though there were plenty of "Easter Eggs" and satisfying references to other known HP people & places (Grindelwald, Le Strange, Hogwarts, Dumbledore etc)
The Special FX were pretty amazing - most of the Magical Creatures were well realized and convincing. There was plenty of humour throughout, while the music....I am not sure if other have mentioned it....but the movie's soundtrack is just as fantastic as those wonderful beasts!
