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.
A set of puppeteers allowed the actors and the technicians to physically take the place of the animals which were then finalized in post production thanks to the visual effects. Robin Guiver, the puppeteer responsible for creatures, led the team. He is a recognized professional since his creation of the character of "War Horse" on Broadway and his participation in Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them (2016). The puppets were of different sizes and materials depending on the beast: for example, small bags of marbles were used to double the Niffler and his babies. And the enormous Zouwu required no less than three puppeteers, one manipulating his large sculpted head while the others moved his body and tail nearly three meters long that they swayed at the end of a pole.

The actress playing young Leta Lestrange was wearing Slytherin robes. But, Newt Scamander showed her a raven chick and said, "Raven is the emblem of your house, is it not?" and she agrees. This implies that she might a Ravenclaw and she's wearing the wrong robes. But, even so, the symbol of the Ravenclaw house is an eagle, not a raven. So, it's an error in both the costume department and the script. See more »
Where are the fantastic beasts? What are the crimes of Grindelwald? This is not magic, it's CGI. It lost that essential taste of friendship and bond between characters within magical context of the original HP series.
