An excellent, excellent movie! After the movie my 10 year old looked over at me and, with a smile on her face, said "that was an awesome movie!" It was an awesome movie indeed. If you like Harry Potter, you'll love Fantastic Beasts. This isn't a prequel to Harry Potter, but is set within the Harry Potter wizarding universe. You won't hear mention of Harry Potter since the movie is set in a time well before Harry was born. You will, however, hear a few names, such as Albus Dumbledore, that any Harry Potter fan is familiar.
Take a moment, okay, 2 hours and 13 minutes of moments, to watch Fantastic Beasts. You won't be disappointed!
