Well we knew it wouldn’t be long before we were whisked back to JK Rowling’s world. What is surprising, however, is just how reinvigorated, yet familiar, it all feels. We’re very much in pre-Potter territory here; 1926 New York to be precise. This is one of its great pleasures. It is set in our non-magic or ‘Muggle’ world. Newt Scamander (a post-Oscar-glory, still humble Eddie Redmayne) arrives in the city nearing the end of a global excursion to research and rescue magical creatures, some of which are safeguarded in the hidden pocket-dimensions of his deceptively nondescript leather case. But potential disaster strikes when an unsuspecting No-Maj (the transatlantic world for Muggle. Keep up) lets some of Newt’s beasts loose in a city already on edge. Events take an ominous turn when Percival Graves (Colin Farrell) the enigmatic Director of Magical Security at MACUSA (Magical Congress of the United States of America – Donald Ducked for short) casts his (J.EdgarH: same story) suspicions on Newt. Warner Bros. want this to be the start of a FIVE-part franchise; I hope it pays off. Can never have too many wizards? (research Jack Whiting)
