I AM A HUGE FAN of the first Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them, movie. I read a lot of hate for Newt’s character, about how he didn’t seem like a hero, he didn’t really have any motivation, and that he seemed to lack any resolve to push the narrative forward? I personally freaking loved him, as a character! His quirky attitude made me think of the Doctor, and that’s a win in my book. And as far as Harry Potter characters go, I think he might be my favorite, overall, specifically because of his odd demeanor.
AND NEWTS FREAKING fashion sense, man! Gah, I want his jacket. And his clothes. I would dress like that, on a daily basis, if I had the funds. It looks expensive as fug, but would be so worth it. And do I even have to mention that he wears a freaking bow tie, son? A bow tie! It’s so good. And as a fellow Hufflepuff, I have to say that Newt is my freaking dude!
OH, AND I ALSO WANTED to mention, briefly, the controversy about Nagini being Asian. Specifically, the backlash that J.K. Rowling is trying to gain “woke” points by including a person of color, when Rowling’s original books had almost no characters of color. To that I say, “Who gives a SH**”!” What if she is? Her books were written during a different part of her life. Let her write. I’m of the belief that you should write a story and add characters that need to be there, whether it’s an all white cast, all black, all Asian, a mix, whatever. I would not give two sh**s if the cast was all white and British, again. I’d still watch it, and I’d still love it. Having an Asian character is just an added bonus. Tell me a good story. That’s all that matters.
I ALSO DO NOT CARE that Johnny Depp is Grindalwald. Although, I do wish that Colin Ferral kept his role as the malicious wizard, because that dude is intimidating as fu**! But I like Johnny Depp as an actor, and I believe in separating the art from the artist. So for me, I don’t mind. And from the looks of the trailer, he looks like he’s going to kill it as Gridalwald!
I WILL SAY that what he did is messed up, and I don’t stand behind domestic abuse, at all. Ever. But what happened with his domestic abuse allegations is between him, his wife (ex), and the law. That’s for them to sort and figure out. Just like if any person had some issues with their significant other, I don’t think it’s any of the public’s business jumping in and trying to dictate what happens in their lives. It’s their issue to deal with, not anyone elses.
I CANNOT WAIT UNTIL November! I am definitely not going to see it opening night, because kids and all. And I probably won’t see the movie until it comes out on Blu Ray or Netflix, but the hype is freaking real. I hope it lives up to this trailer, because dude! Doesn’t it give you chills?
ARE YOU HYPED for Fantastic Beasts: Crimes of Grindalwald? Are you planning to see it the night of, or do you plan to wait for the craziness to die down before venturing out to see it? Are you even planning to see it?
