Pam and I were able to view a movie we’d missed in the theater but had desired to see. Having watched the Harry Potter movies and enjoying them, we were excited for the Harry Potter prequel Fantastic Beasts And Where To Find Them. Two years after its 2016 release, we made that desire a reality.
Fantastic Beasts And Where To Find Them was directed by David Yates. J.K. Rowling was the writer. With this combination, the movie had to be good!
