Harry Potter fans can see how his journey began 70 years before he read his first book. Although this is a pre-quell to the Potter books and movies the special effects are of course much more dynamic and this will excite fans. I thought more was needed in the storyline as new characters were introduced. There’s a quick pic cameo of Zoe Kravitz but no scene; Johnny Depp has a quick scene. My comparison of Harry Potter and Newt is that, Harry led his movies better…hopefully this series will get better as J. K. Rowlings depend on her to dazzle on the big screen. Well, I guess everyone has to wait until the part 2 arrives in 2018 (there will be five movies). I saw it in IMAX and it was great; I may try and catch it in 3D and Dolby if I can find it.
