The Fantastic Beasts franchise is made up of the prequels to the Harry Potter books and movies, and they are fantastic, just like the title says! I couldn’t wait to see this third installment!
Professor Albus Dumbledore (Jude Law) knows the powerful Dark wizard Gellert Grindelwald (Mads Mikkelsen) is moving to seize control of the wizarding world. Unable to stop him alone, he entrusts Magizoologist Newt Scamander (Eddie Redmayne) to lead an intrepid team of wizards, witches and one brave Muggle baker on a dangerous mission, where they encounter old and new beasts and clash with Grindelwald’s growing legion of followers. But with the stakes so high, how long can Dumbledore remain on the sidelines?
We loved this movie, just as good as the ones before, highly entertaining, and I love those fantastic beasts!
Eddie Redmayne reminds me of Tom Holland in that his character is played with a youthful exuberance and innocence that makes their movies even better. Eddie does a great job yet again.
Dan Fogler as Jacob Kowalski has an expanded role and is better than ever. His naivete in relation to the wizarding world, along with him being the one Muggle we have seen allowed to see that world, is played to a tee. The cast was great, and Eddie and Dan’s acting is the high point!
The film features an ensemble cast, including Oscar winner Eddie Redmayne (“The Theory of Everything”), two-time Oscar nominee Jude Law (“Cold Mountain,” “The Talented Mr. Ripley”), Ezra Miller, Dan Fogler, Alison Sudol, William Nadylam, Callum Turner, Jessica Williams, Victoria Yeates, Poppy Corby-Tuech, Fiona Glascott, Katherine Waterston, Maria Fernanda Cândido, Richard Coyle, Oliver Masucci, Valerie Pachner, and Mads Mikkelsen.
The movie is dark, it brought up memories of the early days of the Third Reich, and even some political nuances that reminded me of the last administration in this country. This third installment was terrific and I cannot wait to see it again!
