Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them - Spoilercast #51
Chelsey joins Chris once again to break down another JK Rowling-written wizarding world entry and this time it's 2016's franchise starter, Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them, in our 51st spoiler episode!
Join Chris and Chelsey as they analyze & review (with FULL SPOILERS) Fantastic Beasts and Where To Find Them, the 2016 fantasy movie prequel directed by David Yates, starring Eddie Redmayne and written by JK Rowling.
Newt joins Tina, Jacob & Queenie (in America!) to capture some magical creatures - oh and also deal with the evil uprising of the terrifying dark wizard, Grindelwald!
This film franchise starter is a prequel to the Harry Potter saga (written solely by the one and only JK Rowling) - but does it even compare to the beloved original series?
Between catching pokemon, starting friendships and bottle-feeding an octopus, we also dive into deeply disturbing themes. Does the whimsical tone mix with the action and the dark? Is this even a kids movie?
Our villains begin a war that is major setup for a new massive magic movie franchise. Are we ready, and wanting, the 4 sequels?
It gets intense as we are a bit divisive in our very in-depth breakdown of Oscar-winner Eddie Redmayne's 1st venture into the wizarding world.
We invite you to help us find some billywigs, bowtruckles, mooncalves, Dan Foglers, erumpets and even a rare Johnny Depp!
