Harry Potter Moment of the Week is a meme hosted by Leah @ Uncorked Thoughts and Me @ Lunar Rainbows Reviews. The idea is to share a favorite moment, magical item, character, spell, quote, object from the books, films or J.K.Rowling herself! How to join up & upcoming topics here.
Happy Thursday my friends! Thursday is a good day, first because it means Friday's just around the corner and second, because it's HARRY POTTER DAY!
When I'm coming up with topics, a free week always sounds like a good idea, but when I get to coming up with a post on a free week? I want to kick myself. I never know what to talk about that hasn't been discussed before...I used to go back and check out topics from before I joined up with this meme... but I'm pretty sure I've done them all now. So, this week, we're going to chat:
Fantastic Beasts And Where to Find Them
As any hardcore Potterhead, once I had read through the series and subsequently reread the entire series multiple times, I quickly nabbed all the little extra books from the Wizarding World penned by JK Rowling, which included Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them. I know I'm not the only one who thought that the book had lots more potential than what we got at first so when they announced a film trilogy based on the book, it was like a dream come true. You mean we get to spend more time in the Wizarding world?!
Getting to explore new territory, a new setting, new characters and plot set in the Wizarding World, written by JK herself is like the next best thing to getting more actual Harry Potter books - or a Marauders prequel!
Tell me you didn't get chills at least one time during this^^
The cast is stellar, the plot seems promising and magical, and as much as nothing will ever beat a London setting, I'm excited to explore America in the 1920's and see what trouble Newt gets up to. If Dumbledore vouched for him, then I'm sold!
There's also a book version of the Screenplay coming out but I'm going to wait and see the film before I decide if that one warrants a pre-order too. Odds are it'll become part of my collection as well!
Share your thoughts on the Fantastic Beast Movie Trilogy!
