Description

This spin-off of the HARRY POTTER franchise jumps back in time to explore the wizarding world of 1926 New York, which is being threatened by both mystical acts of destruction and a group of extremist No-Majs (the American term for Muggles, i.e. those unable to use magic). Author Newt Scamander (Eddie Redmayne) arrives in the city as part of a global study of fantastic beasts, but he gets caught up in this conflict when some of the magical creatures in his care are accidentally released. Katherine Waterston, Alison Sudol, Dan Fogler, Colin Farrell, Ezra Miller, and Johnny Depp co-star in this fantasy adventure, which was directed by David Yates (who helmed four of the HARRY POTTER films) and adapted for the screen by J.K. Rowling from her own book.

Movie Critics
Boston Globe
"[A] juicily enjoyable crowd-pleaser that works....Rowling proves to be a good, sharp hand with dialogue..."
Ty Burr (17 Nov 2016, )
Empire
3 stars out of 5 -- "[T]hanks to Rowling’s capacity for invention and some utterly glorious new beasts like kleptomaniac platypus the Niffler, the gamble largely succeeds -- and, as you’d expect, it looks dazzling doing it."
Helen O'Hara (17 Nov 2016, )
Entertainment Weekly
"[I]ts phantasmagorical special effects are easy on the eyes." -- Grade: B-
Chris Nashawaty (12 Nov 2016, )
Los Angeles Times
"[A] smoothly assembled, menagerie-themed offshoot from the HARRY POTTER cinematic universe....A lively, fast-paced adventure that balances high-spirited whimsy and darkly brooding atmosphere in the usual Rowling tradition."
Justin Chang (17 Nov 2016, )
RogerEbert.com
3 stars out of 4 -- "You will quickly know if you feel the Potter magic if you smile when a snippet of 'Hedwig’s Theme' -- named for Harry’s owl -- is heard early on the soundtrack or if you suddenly sit up when the name 'Lestrange' is mentioned."
Susan Wloszczyna (18 Nov 2016, )
The Atlantic
"[O]verall the film charts a new path through familiar magical terrain. Instead of schoolchildren learning their craft, the protagonists here are fully formed wizards..."
Christopher Orr (17 Nov 2016, )
The Guardian
4 stars out of 5 -- "This highly entertaining twist on jazz age America breathes fresh life into the Potter franchise -- and, with its themes of society divided and the persecution of minorities, the film finds itself to be perfectly timed."
Wendy Ide (20 Nov 2016, )
Total Film
3 stars out of 5 -- "[I]t is an exceedingly solid franchise-opener that builds a new world with enough bridges to the established Potterverse to keep the devoted happy."
Jamie Graham (12 Nov 2016, )
