IMDB's summary: "The year is 1926 and Newt Scamander has just completed a global excursion to find and document an extraordinary array of magical creatures. Arriving in New York for a brief stopover, he might have come and gone without incident...were it not for a No-Maj (American for Muggle) named Jacob, a misplaced magical case, and the escape of some of Newt's fantastic beasts, which could spell trouble for both the wizarding and No-Maj worlds."
My summary: Lil odd wizard comes into scary NYC with a briefcase full of "fantastic beasts" & some of said beasts get out & cause some problems along with another unseen force. Ohhhhh...
Let me start with saying how much I love Eddie Redmayne. I mean, just look at him, isn't he adorable?! I just wanna put him in my pocket & keep him FOREVER! I think that he's a wonderful actor & he played the part of Newt beautifully. He was amazing.
I loved the story & as a Harry Potter fan, I didn't compare it to the Harry Potter series as I sometimes forgot that it was apart of that unless they mentioned something that reminded me that they were connected. I am anxious to see how this story progresses & I read that it will be a five movie deal. Awhoo hoo!
As soon as we left the theater, I told Paul that I wanted to see it again already. Next week, I think that I'll be seeing Newt on the big screen again with my friend, Courtney. :)
