Scamander, Fantastic Beast and An Old Suitcase



Scamander, Fantastic Beast and An Old Suitcase



New York 1926.

A British man was tall, thin, frail with a blue jacket, brown suede vest carrying an old suitcase that contains a world of wonders unimaginable. An American chubby mustachioed haste to a bank to get a loan to build a bakery, also carrying a suitcase similar skin. They cross paths and collide. Koper swapped. And what happens is chaos at once a long journey: the animals were unseen by the odd shape to slip out of the brown suitcase and want to taste the life of New York resplendent.

Only J.K Rowling that could start a story (novel and film) with intelligent and makes the reader / viewer does not want to stop looking out the continuation of the story. For Potterhead, even if only briefly, they know the name of Newt Scamander, England frail young man who was mentioned in the Harry Potter series. Scamander is a magizoologis, magical animal expert, whose work titled Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them became one of the compulsory reading of the witches at Hogwarts school.

Setting the film is 70 years before the world of Harry Potter begins. Scamander still collect and care for the collection of magical animals, from the tiny Niffler, platypus similar animal who likes to steal shiny objects; until Erumpent shaped like a giant rhinoceros and the body emits light. Suitcase, as well as platform 9 ¾, or a phone booth in the Harry Potter universe, like a 'gate' which gives an infinite world that contains the universe of magic. Inside the suitcase, we would witness the magical animals were treated compassionately by Scamander.

In the living animals occult scattered here and there, we met with Jacob Kowalski (Dan Volgler), no-maj alias man without finesse magic (just like the muggle in the world of Harry Potter) who inadvertently witnessed all the wonders that happen. Hie together Newt, and two witch sisters Tina Goldstein (Katherine Waterston) and Queenie (Alsion Sudol) fourth driving around town looking for the lost animals. Adventure was later turned into a fanatical resistance to the collection of New York society is anti-magic. Among the chase chase it, the four also have to play hide and seek -with grandeur of their magic-eye Macusa (Magical Congress of the United States of America) is the head of security held by Percival Graves (Colin Farrell).

Unlike the eighth Harry Potter film adaptation of seven novels, this time to intervene J.K Rowling wrote the script. So this time the Potterghead recently witnessed an Rowling's work without knowing the plot and story details, especially twists and surprises at the end of the story. Rowling and director David Yates (who had directed some of the latest Harry Potter film) certainly throws some references that we already know. Not only mantra "Alohomora" and a series of spells that we know at Hogwarts, but also the name of Albus Dumbledore and the witch who has chosen the dark path to Gellert Grindelwald was mentioned. The end of the film is surprisingly clear giving the red carpet for the next four episodes.

We still have to explore what happened to Albus Dumbledore and Grindelwald black magic witch. Moreover, J.K Rowling had expressed publicly that in her head Dumbledore is a man who falls in love with Grindelwald before they become big enemies due to the death of Ariana Dumbledore, Albus's younger sister.

Interesting fact is how consistent J.K Rowling in incorporating the theme of anti-fascism and anti-racism in his works. If in the Harry Potter series of black magic witches always insulting ordinary man without magic as the "Mudblood"; then the reverse on American soil, Rowling shows how the people of New York fanatical militant anti witch so until President Macusa Seraphina Picquery (Carmen Ejogo) prohibits the witches to show off their magic abilities. According to the President, if the no-maj uncover the magical world, there will be a big war. Though when the film is being worked on, Donald Trump and US political scene yet, but Rowling publicly said that Trump was much worse than Voldemort and Rowling's characters will always challenge sectarian and racism. This sentiment was felt to be the spirit of this film: the clash of two (magic and non-magic); but also contradictions of human and animal spirits.

By entering some important references in the first film series "Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them" is, maybe there will be some moments rather confusing them completely lay of the universe of Harry Potter, especially relevance villain Grindelwald. Another thing that becomes a problem, the film is packed with subplots that branches to and fro. In the Harry Potter novels, when Rowling sew a few subplots, the director and screenwriter immediately cut it so that the plot can focus on the main story: Harry Potter.

But because Rowling can now begin debutny as a screenwriter, then some of the subplots crammed fro and quite disturbing
