‘Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them’ is arguably one of the most anticipated movies of 2016, and just a few days before release the first reviews are in. Fans have been getting pretty worked up for the ‘Harry Potter’ spin-off, especially since J.K. Rowling has written the screenplay (for the first time, no less). David Yates, helmer of several previous Potter adventures, is on directing duties and has just been confirmed to be in charge of all five movies in the new franchise.
There’s been plenty of talk where the DC Expanded Universe in concerned, especially when we’ll actually see ‘Man of Steel 2′ come to fruition.
With ‘Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them’ in cinemas this month, the anticipation for the ‘Harry Potter’ spin-off couldn’t be higher. Naturally its star, Oscar-winner Eddie Redmayne, felt the pressure to make a great film after the enormous success of the Potter franchise but was always likely to rise to the occasion. It’s an interesting response that not only tries to take the focus off him but also brings characters Porpentina Goldstein, Queenie Goldstein, and Jacob Kowalski into the picture.
