We've got our new Dumbledore. Jude Law.

I wanted Jared Harris :( I'm sure Jude Law will be fine though, I like his Dr. Watson in the Sherlock Holmes movies, and he's a fairly decent actor.
I like Jude Law, Harris would have been great! I'm still not happy with Johnny Depp. I guess I should say I'm worried about Depp because I'm not sure what we will get.

So lord voldermot's snake is actually a person stuck as a transfigured snake? Wut. I really hope they answer that question at some point because that makes no sense with the rest of the movies/books.

It’s apparently some sort of blood curse magic, but it makes her older than Voldemort. Rowling is claiming she’s had the idea for 20 years, but this seems like an odd way of including it (personally, I liked it better when Nagini was just a snake).

I’m really hoping they make a James Bond prequel that shows how Blofeld’s cat became the first feline of global domination.

So I was kind of proud of this, but when Nagini shows up in Escape from Gringotts, I turned to my friend on the ride last week and said “Would someone please help that Asian woman trapped as a snake????”

Just looking at some of the first reviews it seems pretty mixed. After the first one I don't really know what I was expecting from this series.
I don’t think the series has a cohesive theme, just from looking in on the outside (after two films).

Focusing on Fantastic Beasts is one thing. Making it about the First Wizard War is another.

I’m hoping to see this some time this weekend, I haven’t been to the theaters since Ant-Man & the Wasp 😳

This sums up my feelings:

Also, regarding this whole new JK Rowling ‘controversy’- I really don’t think she can win. This is a kid’s series, things can’t get that sexual, but we have never heard Dumbledore or Grindelwald mention their relationship (which I get could change over the next 3 movies). The movie seemed to lean towards the relationship at one point, only to mention some weird blood curse thing.

Just watched the second one recently. It was not good. In general, prequels just don’t seem to be a good idea for a franchise. Side stories here and there are fine, but stretching out something we know the gist of into several movies just makes for long winded, convoluted boredom.
