From the moment the teasers and posters started trickling inside social media, Harry Potter fans around the world waited with bated breaths to once again get mesmerized by the magical world. What they did not know was that, they were in for a surprise. This prequel happens in the 1920’s and follows the adventure of the author/magizoologist Newt Scamander in the then New York. Armed with just a suitcase that is home to myriad magical creatures, he is in for a shock when he steps onto New York. We get to know what happens to the magical suitcase as we embark on a magical ride with Newt Scamander along with his two witch friends and a no-maj (Apparently, that is how Americans call muggles). The journey that awaits Newt, surprises us, just like his bewildered expression with that breathtaking side grin. (All thanks to Eddie Redmayne!)
Grindelwald. Yes you heard me right. That bad wizard who terrorized people before Voldemort has a role to play in this story, which is, to create havoc among peaceful human beings. Who better than Johnny Depp to play Grindelwald? Yes. Johnny Depp as Grindelwald. How cool is that?
