Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them came out this November to much praise from Harry Potter fans and newcomers to the Wizarding World alike. With new faces and a new story, Warner Brothers and J.K. Rowling took a big risk turning this seemingly unknow part of the Harry Potter universe into a multimillion dollar movie franchise.
Fortunately for her and the company, it paid off. Fantastic Beasts was met well with fans and critics alike which does not happen often these days. Many reported the movie as a breath of fresh air for the Harry Potter World, and in fact it might be a perfect place for a newcomer to jump in.
