What you need to get before seeing Fantastic Beasts in theater

What you need to get before seeing Fantastic Beasts in theater

Today is the day! The older I get, the more I hear people express their love for the Harry Potter series & how J.K. Rowling impacted their child, teenage & adult life. I have to be honest, and many of you will probably cast magic on me, but I never read the books. I know, I know...I've heard it all, the books were WAY better than the movies and I'm not a true HP fan. Well, that's just not nice. Hear me out. It wasn't until I turned 24 years young {yes...a year and a half ago} that reading even seemed remotely enjoyable. Reading was the equivalent of my mother making me eat peas with my dinner. Torture. My argument until this point was always, "Why would I read it when I can watch it?" Rebellious, I know. With that being said, I L-O-V-E-D the movies. J.K. Rowling & the movie directors sparked a sense of imagination I never thought I could have.

I will most definitely be going to see Fantastic Beasts: and Where to Find Them tonight in theaters! It will be the best 2 hours and 13 minutes I spend today. It was rated a 90% by Rotten Tomatoes critics & a 72% by Metacritic...what do they know? The budget for this film was $180 dollars which surprised me. I thought the budget would have been much higher. The most expensive film ever made was Pirates of the Caribbean: On Stranger Tides (2011) costing $410.6 million dollars with Harry Potter and the Half Blood Prince (2009) ranking #7 in most expensive films ever made costing ~$250 million dollars.

Here is the link to the 2-minute trailer.

The film takes place 70 years before Harry Potter reads his book in school, and this is the Google excerpt:

The year is 1926, and Newt Scamander (Eddie Redmayne) has just completed a global excursion to find and document an extraordinary array of magical creatures. Arriving in New York for a brief stopover, he might have come and gone without incident, were it not for a No-Maj (American for Muggle) named Jacob, a misplaced magical case, and the escape of some of Newt's fantastic beasts, which could spell trouble for both the wizarding and No-Maj worlds.


I will be sporting my Hermione-esque t-shirt tonight, which you can also get at www.ElizaAsh.com. If you do, take pictures and tag @elizaashboutique on Facebook & Instagram and hashtag #elizaashstyle! Like what you read? Reblog, like or comment to share your thoughts!
