Review: FANTASTIC BEASTS AND WHERE TO FIND THEM (2016)

Set 70 years before the events of Harry Potter's adventure, FANTASTIC BEASTS AND WHERE TO FIND THEM revolves around a magizoologist named Newt Scamander (Eddie Redmayne), who arrives in the 1920s New York City to protect magical creatures that he collects in his seemingly ordinary but larger-than-life leather suitcase. Trouble arises when a portly baker named Jacob Kowalski (Dan Fogler) unknowingly switches briefcases with Newt on the street and let loose some of Newt's creatures that end up wreaking havoc in the city. Soon, Newt finds himself drawn into the conflicts of the wizarding world as he joins forces with Tina (Katherine Waterston), a security officer with the Magical Congress of the United States of America (MACUSA) and her mind-reading sister Queenie (Alison Sudol) on a mission to recover Newt's missing creatures.
