Woohoo!! Just read the entertainment news the other day, Jude Law will be playing young Dumbledore. Sounds like there will be a Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them sequel starring Eddie Redmayne. And, Johnny Depp is getting more screen time as a villain. Can’t wait to see the movie in 2018.
Heard of Jude Law, but rarely watched his movies. The only memorable movie I recall is when he was Dr. Watson in Sherlock Holmes. Jude Law will be portraying Dumbledore, one of the iconic figures in Harry Potter series before he was the Headmaster of Hogwarts. For now, we know Fantastic Beasts 2 will start off when Dumbledore is the Professor of Transfiguration at Hogwarts. It will be an interesting story to see Dumbledore’s personality and his relationship with Grindweld. They were good friends before the dark magic part them off. Johny Depp as Grindweld, who will fall into the dark path and becomes a threat to Europe. How powerful can wizards be?
One question, is Jude Law the right actor for the character of Dumbledore? We will have to watch to find out. For now, the release date for Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them is November 18, 2018. Watch the first installment Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them on Amazon here or FandangoNow here.

Another Harry Potter film!! Oops, sorry. I meant to say another amazing film from J.K. Rowling’s Wizarding World.
As a Harry Potter fan, this movie was not disappointing. Great movie accompanied by an amazing trailer. After watching the film, I thought the movie did a great job with the characters instead of recycling the characters from the original story of Harry Potter series. I am glad that the film gave something fresh instead of relying on the original Harry Potter series, in which, the movie did a great job with. Fantastic Beasts did a great job in fulfilling my Harry Potter movies void feeling.
As a self-proclaimed Potter fan I admit I was looking forward to watch Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them, but also a bit worried when I entered the theater. Can this new wizard world live up to Harry Potter’s fan expectation?! Well, J.K. Rowling did it again. I was entertained almost immediately hooked as the adorable and annoying Newt Scamander’s beast escaped.
Before I watched the film, I hadn’t read the book or even heard of the trailer. I had never knew there was a book on this movie. The only thing I knew it had something to do with some magic wand and Fantastic Beasts. I had no idea of the heart-warming, action and suspense packed, incredibly filmed, tale of fantasy that awaited me.
Now to time to chat about the story. I really like the world that Rowling created. The film perfectly continues on the magic from Potter world we know, with the old- time early 1900s style, while also incorporating enough action and suspense to keep us on the edge of our seats, with a bit of heartwarming story of a young man and his beasts.
The way how Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them ended was bittersweet. I felt like its a sad ending where the characters had to go on separate ways. Surprising appearance of Johnny Depp, I knew it was him, but those around me did not believed me after the movie. Overall, it was a really good movie. I look forward to what J.K. Rowling have in store for us.
