  11. ...honestly that had never even crossed my mind. I had always imagined McGonagall was there at that time for some reason. I know she worked for the Ministry of Magic before she came to Hogwarts, but she was sort of seamlessly included in the films, and it didn't even occur to me that they were taking place much too early for her to be there. the HP Lexicon has her DOB listed as 1935 so she wouldn't have even been born yet by the time of the first three movies, let alone have been someone teaching Newt and Leta while they were at Hogwarts. It looks like they're trying to retcon her age a bit, but I don't think her addition made too much of a difference one way or another aside from, like you said, the addition of having a fan-favourite character on the big screen.
  12. Warning: There will be spoilers, but I've marked them off. I hope lmao. I saw Secrets of Dumbledore last weekend (and I'm seeing it again this weekend, but that's not the point >.>), and I have to say that this one did a bit better than the last film in some areas, but not as great in others. I really like being able to see and learn more about magical creatures that we haven't been introduced to yet; learning about the Swooping Death and seeing it in action was really cool in Fantastic Beasts, and watching Newt introduce Jacob to all the creatures was one of my favorite parts. I'm a massive animal lover, so of course it makes sense I would totally fall for the magizoologist lol. In any event, I really wish we were able to see more creatures in the later films like we did in the first film, but I think Secrets of Dumbledore did a decent job otherwise. All in all, I really liked the film. The way it ended wasn't entirely how I thought it would end, but I also think it ended in an intriguing manner, and I can't wait to see more films in the future.
  13. Also, as a secondary thought, I really wish that I had seen Will's warning myself earlier! I had gone onto the Harry Potter wikipedia to look at something about Creedence, and I saw all the spoilers from the third movie involving him, and it definitely was a shock. I hate the fact that they add in spoilers quite this early without any such warnings.
  14. I've seen the movie now, and I will definitely refrain from posting any sort of spoilers, but I can say I did enjoy it immensely. I think my biggest hangup with Queenie switching to Grindelwald's side just because he could offer her marriage to a no-maj was the fact that some of the regulations were a bit unclear. My main thought was "if the MACUSA won't let you marry in America, why can't you move somewhere that will allow you to do so?" Now, I definitely understand the idea of moving somewhere else entirely just to marry someone seems ridiculous, especially when your own family is somewhere else (with Tina being in the States), but at the same time she's a member of the Wizarding community! The Floo Network existed, so she could have easily gone to visit Tina (and Newt because it's no spoiler they end up together; that was established in either the HP novels themselves or in Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find them (the novel), I just don't remember which) via Floo Powder. So, again, I raise my point of if the two of them want to marry so badly, why couldn't they have considered the idea of relocating to the UK where it's not illegal to marry a Muggle? Newt himself calls the Anti-Muggle laws 'backwards laws', and we have half-bloods and muggleborns witches and wizards that exist, so it stands to reason that it's not quite as frowned upon over there. That also brings up the question of what happened with the Muggleborn children in America? Surely there were some Muggle families where a magical child was born; after all, I think this is partially where we get Obscurials from. Were all of them forced to suppress their magic? Like...I don't understand why Queenie had to join Grindelwald just to be able to marry Jacob when she knew that joining him would surely cause a serious strain on their relationship, and I really don't understand why Americans were quite so Anti-Muggle; they can't even quote the Salem Witch Trials as the reason because the witch trials were a worldwide problem. Yes, it's important to keep the knowledge of the Wizarding Community a secret, but that doesn't mean some No-Majs/Muggles couldn't have been trusted. I think the Anti-Muggle Association laws were what stressed me out the most lol.
