The first teaser for Fantastic Beasts And Where To Find Them, like many first teasers, was all about setting a tone and getting the movie’s name out there. If you check out my past article on it you will see that I was not that impressed with it. It wasn’t bad, just underwhelming. However, thanks to the MTV Movie Awards, we have our first proper look at this prequel/spinoff of the Harry Potter series, and it actually tells looks pretty good!
The film is written by J.K. Rowling, who everyone knows as the author of the absurdly popular Harry Potter novels, and directed by David Yates, who directed the last four installments in the Harry Potter film franchise. Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them tells the adventure of writer Newt Scamander (Eddie Redmayne) in 1920’s New York’s secret community of witches and wizards seventy years before Harry Potter reads his book in school.
Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them is set to be in theaters on November 18, 2016. Will the potterheads be happy? Or will they not? Only time will tell.
