Cover To Cover | Fantastic Beasts & Where To Find Them

Well if my review of the film was not clear enough, here I am again with another Fantastic Beasts related post to clarify just how much I love the enterprise.

The English Edition


While this cover does lean towards the more minimalistic style, I like it. I love how the red and gold give it a magical effect and the design adds a little hint that the book belongs to the wizarding world

The other English Edition


This looks much more like a manuscript cover but there is a sort of mystical air to it. The washed out colour obviously makes it seem more historic and the illustration reminds me of the some of the first ever Harry Potter covers.

The German Edition


Now this is classic Harry Potter style. They can’t go wrong with a cover like this. It’s cute, it’ll attract the children and the adults alike.

The Bulgarian Edition


This seems like an eccentric cover. Love the gold and purple colour scheme and the detailed design of the serpentine creature.

The French Edition


I absolutely love the blue in this cover. It’s so elegant and kind of old fashioned. The illustrations are so mystical and just AHH

Which one is your favourite?

Film review

Moonlight Cinema | Fantastic Beasts

For a magical movie such as Fantastic Beasts and Where To Find Them, it was only fitting that I watch it open air, surrounded by nature.

The movie itself was quite literally: fantastic. There were humourous elements to keep things light, there was drama, there was mystery and of course there was magic. It was interesting to see the wizarding world in the US compared to the one in the UK.

I especially enjoyed it when, during dramatic sequences where the characters were fighting for their lives, a wild wind would rush through the grounds where the movie was being projected.

Moving onto the characters, Newt is one of the cutest actors I have come across for a while! I like how he is introverted and just concerned with his Beasts. I also loved how there wasn’t much of a romantic element in the movie, you get sick of all the mooching in the end huh.

My favourite scene would have to be when Newt introduced Mr. Kowalski to all his Beasts. In my experience, a full moon was sneaking up behind the wide screen as the scene played out. Absolutely magical.

The movie makes me want to read the book (yes, I haven’t read the book yet!) and it also makes me miss the beautiful world of Harry Potter!
