Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them opens in 1926 as Newt
Scamander has just completed a global excursion to find and
document an extraordinary array of magical creatures. Arriving in
New York for a brief stopover, he might have come and gone without
incident... were it not for a No-Maj (American for Muggle) named
Jacob, a misplaced magical case, and the escape of some of Newt’s
fantastic beasts, which could spell trouble for both the wizarding
and No-Maj worlds.
Rated PG-13 for some fantasy action violence.

Back to the magic
I personally thought this movie was a lot of fun. I'm not the
worlds biggest...or moderate Harry Potter fan but this is more
Doctor Who does Harry Potter. I have been told there will be more
movies after this one, so I am a bit excited about that. I enjoyed
that this wasn't as depressingly dark as the HP movies, some nice
light hearted movement, it wasn't a "just kill me or get to the
point" slow type movie either. I do believe it definitely earns
it's PG-13 rating as it has some subject matter that is not for
small children, nothing sexual, but some darker things that might
not be age appropriate for kids who are younger.
Love HP movies. Best movie in 2016
I really enjoyed this movie! From the beginning I felt transported
back to the magical world of the original Harry Potter books and
movies. The music for this movie was similar to the music from the
original movies and set the tone.
The storyline for this film is set before Harry Potter. If you have
read any of the extras besides the main books, you have probably
come across some of the history alread, but this film is the
beginning of the detailed history of what happened before there was
a Harry Potter. I look forward to the next films. I also wish this
was going to be released as another book series, but it looks like
that is not the case.
Fantastic Story, Excellent Movie
Welcome back to the wizarding world long before Harry Potter's
time. Meet Newt Scamander an interesting fellow who searches out
and cares for magical creatures. His creatures and his search for
them lands him in some trouble, gets him some new friends and
enemies. It all rolls together to make a fascinating story and with
the visual effects a fantastic movie.
