Fantastic Beasts: Secrets of Dumbledore Review

When it comes to the movies, one of my favorite genres belongs to fantasy. Finally, I was able to catch the 3rd Fantastic Beasts movie. I got into Fantastic Beasts because of my love for Harry Potter. Couldn’t wait to spend time with Newt, the beasts (obviously the Nifflers and the Bowtruckle, as they are the only ones I can name), and possibly new characters.

Professor Albus Dumbledore knows the powerful, dark wizard Gellert Grindelwald is moving to seize control of the wizarding world. Unable to stop him alone, he entrusts magizoologist Newt Scamander to lead an intrepid team of wizards and witches. They soon encounter an array of old and new beasts as they clash with Grindelwald’s growing legion of followers

I actually loved this movie- I even loved discovering the new characters (from beasts to those in the wizarding community). It couldn’t be a Fantastic Beasts movie if the beasts weren’t involved in some way, and I was able to see them involved (always helps Newt at crucial or the right moment). So, now our main action is taking place in Berlin——-we do end up at Hogwarts and Hogsmeade at times. Due to taking place in another city, we saw another side to the Wizarding Community, which is always exciting to watch——-as Harry Potter fans grew up with the British Wizarding World.

There are even Harry Potter References that are easy to pick up on that others can’t. How would I have able to recognize both Hogsmeade (as in where they were- as in The Hog’s Head) and Hogwarts. Even coming across Aberforth- I quickly knew who he was. Even the mention of Room of Requirement and traveling by Portkey.
