By a strange twist of fate last night, I ended up going to see the new film from Harry Potter author J.K Rowling , called ‘Fantastic Beasts and where to find them”.

Played by the lead actor Eddie Redmayne and based on a character called Newt Scamander (who is mentioned in the first of the Potter films), it’s a story of magical mischief set some 70 years before Harry Potter even started reading his school books. The year is 1926, and Newt 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.

Dark arts magic and mayhem too.

Amazing to see what CGI can achieve these days, and some stunning New York visuals from all perspectives of the city. There is said to be a further four films coming our way in the next few years about Newt! Great to loose myself in a little Christmas magic for a couple of hours.

      Nippers and the big fish seemed to like it too. A few scary scenes where people do get killed so depending how hardy the nippers are : )
