Heyyyyy, bookworms! I am sorry that I don’t write much, but when I take too much time reading one book, I don’t usually blog a lot because I have nothing to say. Also, I have been feeling a little bit lazy and I was in a reading slump last week. I blame animes for that, by the way hahahaha.
But I am here woth bookish news!
Fantastic Beasts & Where to Find Them was written by J. K. Rowling to help Comic Relief, a British charity organization that uses humor to fight poverty.
In the magical world created by Rowling, the book is one of the Harry Potter’s textbooks and it was written by Newt Scamander, an expert in magical animals who studied at Hogwarts. He was a Hufflepuff, by the way!
In September 2015, it was announced that this book would be adapted for the big screen. The director is David Yates, who was also responsible for the last four Harry Potter movies. J.K. Rowling and Steve Kloves wrote the script. Eddie Redmayne, Katherine Waterston, Alison Sudol, Dan Fogler, Ezra Miller, Samantha Morton, Colin Farrell, Faith Wood-Blagrove and Jenn Murray are part of the main cast.
After they released pictures, a short video and an official trailer, they posted a new poster today on social media:
The movie will focus on the journey of Newt Scamander in New York in the 20s, after being expelled from Hogwarts. Scamander goes to the big American city with a suitcase full of fantastic monsters. However, when some of these monsters escape, he is forced to chase the exotic creatures, while avoiding the attention of No-Maj (the Americans who are not wizards; in the UK, the term that is used is Muggle, which is known by everyone who loves Harry Potter).
If you haven’t watched the trailer, here it is:
Damn, I’m so excited about this movie because I MISS THIS KIND OF MAGIC SO MUCH! IT HAS BEEN A WHILE SINCE WE HAD A MOVIE LIKE THIS, FOR GOD’S SAKE! I NEED MORE! WE ALL NEED MORE!
Are you excited about this movie?
