The first Fantastic Beasts movie was a huge success; it made almost $1 billion at the box office worldwide. The second installment wasn’t as successful due to some controversies surrounding Johnny Depp’s casting. Despite this, the movie still managed to gross over $700 million worldwide so far. With critics giving mixed reviews of both movies (especially on Rotten Tomatoes), we’re entering into an exciting but uncertain time for fans of JK Rowling’s Wizarding World: will Fantastic Beast 3 be another hit? Here are all the details you need about what we know so far!
The cast for the film includes Johnny Depp (as Gellert Grindelwald), Jude Law (young Albus Dumbledore) Claudia Kim (Maledictus Aestella Carrow), Zoë Kravitz (Leta Lestrange). They can also expect appearances from Katherine Waterston, Dan Fogler, Alison Sudol, and Ezra Miller’s Credence Barebone.
The film also stars Katherine Waterson as Tina Goldstein; Alison Sudol as Queenie Goldstein; Dan Fogler as Jacob Kowalski; Ezra Miller as Credence Barebone / Modesty Blaise; Samantha Morton playing Mary Lou Barebone, Johnny Depp back as Gellert Grindelwald and Jude Law as Albus Dumbledore.
Review and rating:
Fantastic Beast and Where to Find Them is a 2016 film directed by David Yates, who had previously directed the last four Harry Potter movies. The movie was released worldwide on November 18th, 2016. It grossed over $700 million worldwide so far in just two weeks of release (and it’s still going!). Critics have given mixed reviews for both films – with Rotten Tomatoes giving Fantastic Beasts an average rating of 60%.
Rated PG-13 for sequences of fantasy action violence and some scary images. Length 121 minutes.
What is the plot of the new season?
The plot revolves around Newt Scamander’s pet creatures escaping from his magical case while traveling back to New York City after visiting London and other European cities. This results in some major issues across the city involving many different characters including Aurors Tina Goldstein and her sister Queenie Goldstein and No-Maj Jacob Kowalski.
In the second movie, we see that Grindelwald has escaped from his prison in Nurmengard and is looking to unite all wizarding people under him with a powerful artifact called The Obscurus which can destroy entire cities. He also wants to kill Albus Dumbledore so he cannot be defeated by him again as it happened before when they fought many years ago.
Grindelwald uses Credence Barebone who was originally thought to have died at birth but survived because of an Obscurus inside of him after escaping death sentence for killing his abusive adoptive mother and sister in New York City following a confrontation between wizards caused by Newt’s creatures coming out of the case to life and attacking people.
Credence is a possible “Elder Wand” holder because he has the magical power of an Obscurus inside him which means that if Grindelwald manages to kill Albus Dumbledore, Credence would have all three Deathly Hallows (the Elder Wand being one). For this to happen, they need to take over New York City by defeating Newt’s creatures who are guarding it against them.
Fantastic Beasts is one of the most disappointing movies ever made, rating it with a lowly two stars out of four. The plot is weak, characters underdeveloped, dialogue terrible, directing poor and I don’t understand what JK Rowling was thinking when she wrote this film or why Warner Bros green-lighted her story idea for five films in total! Tina Goldstein starts to sound like Mary Lou Barebone without any good justification; Jacob Kowalski unceremoniously gets his memory wiped by Newt Scamander after he briefly reunited him with Queenie who abandoned him at sea – all because they are afraid that their magical creature might escape from some unknown location.
Fantastic Beasts is a two-hour spectacle of boredom, filled with scenes that are all too long and dull to watch. It lacks any semblance of heart or true magic in the sense that it was going for; there’s just no joy in this film which I am sure will make JK Rowling happy considering she hates Hollywood films.
If you’re looking for an enjoyable movie experience then look elsewhere because Fantastic Beast is more than disappointing!
