I'm SUPER excited for this movie (like every other Harry Potter fan), so I've decided to do a trailer reaction/talk/review. If you haven't watched the trailer yet, what are you doing with your life?! I've already lost track of how many times I've watched it! But you can watch it here if you haven't already.
First of all, I love the feel/aesthetic of this movie so much! I love the fact that it is set in the 20s in New York. If you didn't know, I adore movies and books set anywhere between the 20s and 40s; I think it makes for an atmospheric and fascinating setting. The costumes and set for the movie really makes the feel of the movie amazing. I mean look at Newt Scamander's coat! It's absolutely gorgeous (and so are the other costumes)!
Also, who are all these new characters?! I can't wait to see who they are, because the only character we really know about is Newt. I'm also excited to see where the plot goes since we know so little about Newt Scamander and the wizarding world in the 1920s. Plus there is a whole new wizarding culture to explore since the movie is set in America this time!
Now let's talk about the actual beasts. We only get to see a handful of them in the trailer, so I'm hoping there will be lots more in the actual movie.
My favourite is the mole thing in the last picture! It's so cute! The blue, winged creature is also pretty cool, and I don't even know what the thing inside his suitcase is supposed to be.
It was also mentioned that Newt was expelled from Hogwarts and that Dumbledore argued against his expulsion, so hopefully they will expand on that. I wonder if we'll see a young Dumbledore?
And finally, I wanted to talk about the music. It was so GOOD! I loved how they incorporated some of the old music (Hedwig's Theme) from the original Harry Potter movies. It was just done so well and it really added to the overall greatness of the trailer!
Overall I was really pleased with the trailer! I loved the aesthetic/feel of it, and the cinematography, costumes, setting and overall quality was fantastic (*wink*). I can't wait for November! Let me know down below what your favourite part of the trailer was!
