Just like thdmovie
It is just like the movie but so much more when u read it. Wish it was more detailed but as a hard core HP fan, what can you expect. An enjoyable read.
I watched the movie... it was really dark
So I only watched the movie and like I said it was really dark. It had not witchcraft that Harry Potter had, I feel like that was good witchcraft and wizardry but the movie was pretty creepy. With that little girl who was evil and was like killing everyone I did not like it! I still love Harry Potter, it very captivating in the world of hogwarts. Not an enjoyable movie but I’ll se about the book
First and foremost, Newt is my favorite. Ever.
Secondly: some people think this story doesn’t deserve all the hype it gets. I disagree. Remember how the first Harry Potter book was more of a simple, innocent story that grew into something deeper? I think Fantastic Beasts will do the same—just give it time.
But I’m not saying the first story is boring. In fact, it’s the opposite! We get a glimpse into magic in America, and learn about new creatures. And the characters completely blew me away!
...especially Newt. 😊🧳🦄
P.S: We get a protagonist who’s a Hufflepuff? Yes please!
