On Wednesday November 16th the new masterpiece based on J. K. Rowling’s writings is released in French cinemas. The movie was achieved by the talented director David James.
The plot takes us to a new Era of J. K Rowling’s wizarding world, decades before the legendary Harry Potter saga. This time, the main story focuses on the adventure of Norbert Dragonneau, the author of Fantastic beasts book which was studied by Harry Potter. In 1926, Norbert Dragonneau returns from a trip worldwide where he listed an extraordinary bestiary of fantastic creatures. He thought of making a short stopover in New York but a few events and unexpected meetings will extend his trip. He is going to face a lot of terrible events and a black witch who scatters the terror in the community of wizards.
J.K Rowling’s script was inspired by the Hogwards textbook Fantastic Beasts and Where to find them. The movie reunited a certain number of people from the “Harry Potter” features such as Steve Kloves and Lionel Wigram. Moreover the movie was filmed in the same place as the original Harry Potter saga which creates a continuous link between the two worlds.
The release of the Fantastic beasts is planned for the United States on Friday, two days alter the French release.
