Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them

Amazing movie. Or, maybe I should say it was fantastic? I very much enjoyed it.

Kinda surprised about the amount of younger kids though. They had their parents with them so, of course, they had all the right to see it and I’m definitely not complaining in any way. Hope they liked it. I’m just a bit surprised, partly because the movie is in English and although it had Swedish subs, based on my experience with kids in those ages, I’d think they’d have a bit of a problem keeping up with the language. Also, it’s not really written for a younger audience. Not that young, at least. Teenage and up feels more fitting. But, as I said, if they liked it that’s great!

I’m a big Harry Potter-fan and I’ve read all the books – in Swedish, although I bought Harry Potter and the Cursed Child in English so that will be my first by J.K. Rowling to read in the original language – and watched all the movies so I was really looking forward to this one. It did reach my expectations. Another surprise there. It was exciting and funny. The animations was fantastic. I honestly had no idea Johnny Depp would be in it or Colin Farrell for that matter. Eddie Redmayne fitted the role of Newt Scamander perfectly and I think Dan Fogler absolutely deserves some credit, too.

I would love to see even more movies in this universe.
