Fantastic Beasts

There was no Politics - “Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them“

The creator of a series of Harry Potter books, Joanne K. Rowling, has now published details of her world-famous cine film "Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them". Many of her stories come with a political background. The author draws the reader's attention to the increasing populism in the world.

That we have to talk about populism after the new President of the United States of America, the Republican Donald Trump, was elected, is clear! He is a politician who better understood how to capture the hearts of the people with his words. J.K. Rowling, the "Mother" of Harry Potter, has already predicted what is happening today on the world stage more than three years ago. The screenplay for the film was produced in view of the increasing populism to meet the desire of politicians from different countries to break through this development. During the European premiere of her film, Rowling explained that this threat to the world is still valid today. The premiere of "Fantastic Beasts" took place in Italy on 11th November 2016.

"Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them" is a book by Rowling from 2001. It belongs to the Harry Potter universe. The book tells the story of zoology in a magical world and classifies magical creatures. According to the author, another writer, Newt Scamander, compiled the information in the book.

A few years ago, the screening of the book was announced. It is planned to produce five films according to the novel. The first part describes the Zoology Scamander (played by actor Eddie Redmayne), who was expelled from the School of Magic in Hogwarts. The scientist was sent around the world to explore the magical creatures. Fate actuates him to the USA.

By the way, Scamander has already been mentioned several times in the world of Harry Potter. According to Rowling's idea, his work as a zoologist was first included in the curriculum of the Hogwarts School. Harry himself often referred to him during his adventures.

The scenes from the film play 70 years before Harry Potter joins school. There are many famous actors in this film series. Johnny Depp, for example, portrays the dark magician Grindelwald. His figure appears more often in the sequel to the film "Fantastic Beasts". In the first part, he shows up for a short time. Only attentive spectators notice this.
