The arrival of a new J. Rowling book is reason for fans to rejoice and bookshops to anticipate healthy sales. In , there have been not one, but two occasions for celebration—the release of the script of a play running to packed houses in London, and now, the screenplay of a movie set in a time long before Potter and Voldemort. Newt Scamander, our bumbling hero, has arrived in New York with a case full of fantastic beasts. Newt is a more sophisticated version of Hagrid in that he is a magizoologist who wants to teach the wizarding community that the subjects of his study should be protected, not feared. It should surprise no one, then, that within hours of his arrival, many of the creatures escape and run amok over the city.
