#Potterheadreadalong19: Fantastic Beasts & Where to Find Them + Free Bookmarks


Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them was one of my favorite movies of 2016.

I’ve seen it about 3 times now and I’m planning to rewatch it this year too. There were so many things that I loved about this movie and this post will be part of my #Potterheadreadalong19 challenge.




Newt’s SuitcaseIMG_5116

Considering that it had been a long time since we had gotten another movie set in the Wizarding world, Newt’s suitcase was one of my favorite aspects! I loved seeing the magical creatures inside and how big it is in there.

mischievous little things, Nifflers. Although I was pretty sure I wouldn’t be able to handle them I couldn’t stop thinking about how much I would love to have a baby Niffler (and we got to see them in Crimes of Grindelwald).



Autism Spectrum

Everytime I think about Newt he strikes me as autistic. It just felt obvious from the moment we met him. Now, J.K. Rowling hasn’t confirmed this (as far as I know), but I read an article where Eddie Redmayne also pointed this out. I love Newt with all my heart, and I think having a character on the Autism spectrum is wonderful for fans to connect with. I know of a few people who have stated this.

Since the Harry Potter days, the magical creatures have always been a favorite. I loved seeing Newt dealing with them and looking after them. I loved the variety in magical creatures too!

Seeing an Obscurus was quite unique. I’ve always wanted to go deeper into this concept, and seeing it on-screen was a good take. When a magical child tries to suppress their magical abilities (or are abused into doing so) you get an Obscurial. What really happened to Ariana Dumbeldore that we don’t know?

Although I’ve seen Harry Potter about a thousand times I still couldn’t get over the magic. Being back in the wizarding world brought back so many nostalgic memories. I was worried that the movie wasn’t going to be magical enough but it was perfect!

    This is such a fantastic post, and thank you for including the GIFs! I never watched the movie because I was scared I wouldn’t like it and would think less of Rowling (even less) and of the HP world. But now I think I might have to watch it… Newt sounds like a great character. Eddie Redmayne is one of my favorite actors, and from what you described Newt as, I think he must play the role really well!
