    Really cracked me up in this vid, though I did some digging. Turns out, Anthony Goldstein was not retroactively written into the story. He was mentioned in the fifth book, meaning he is as old a character as Luna Lovegood. It is nothing major as he only receives a mention by name, but he was not created later on at least.

    I think Jay (not really Kay) Rowling swallowed the last time turner. Every time she says something she changes the past, the present and the future.

    When the book series is over, J.K. tells us that Dumbledore is gay. Okay. She lets some people write a Harry Potter play, and we learn that Hermione is black. That's funny, because in the books, every time we meet a non-white character, J.K. makes a point of telling us that the character is non-white. AND she let Warner Bros. cast a white girl to play Hermione in 8 films. Plus, in the play we learn that given minor provocation, Cedric Diggory could've become a Death-Eater, even though "The Goblet of Fire" portrays him as perfectly noble and decent. Now we have a couple of new films that introduce a previously-unknown Dumbledore brother AND imply that Professor McGonagall is decades older than the books claim that she is. So.....has J.K. just given up? Does she simply not care anymore? Has she caught whatever the disease is that made George Lucas make the Special Editions and the Prequels? Should we call it "Greedoshotfirstitis"?

    the memory part is all about the last movie , when she kissed him in the rain (the memory potion didn't work on him well) thats why he is getting back his memory gradually. the kiss had some spell that negate the memory wiping rain bull shit, anyway the movie sucks however. JK RAWAULING !? you just should stop writing 1 week a month, cuz if u do , u might end up with a bad story.

    I like the character of Newt and like seeing him in the movie but yeah, he didn't need to be on it, but hey, fantastic beasts can't be fantastic beasts without beasts 😂
    Also, we know for sure Dumbledore is defeating Grindelwald or whatever because it's on Dumbledore's card thingy along with the zombie alchemist guy xd

    You can't kill something that was already dead. This was an attempt to create a new franchise off an old theme. It's amazing it got two. Normally it would of died after the first. Hint, no Harry Potter. Trust me there will be a third. The real problem is the fans are growing up and they are not attracting a new generation.

    The only reason I would have enjoyed this dumbass movie is if Dumbledore and Newt were boyfriends. I don’t know why I wanted that but this movie is dumb and their relationship wouldn’t have added to the story anyways

  • TrashMouth Glore
    TrashMouth Glore 2 days ago

    I feel like it's only important that Newt is in the movie because they wanted to have more Hufflepuff characters seem important cause they weren't really important to the main story. Plus people, such as Myself, Like Newt. And it's just easier for Jk to piggyback after another story.

  • TheJolle

    Rowling is suffering from Lucas syndrome:
    1: Create a successful original series that everyone loves
    2: Start retconning the original series by adding bullshit that no one cares about
    3: Create a prequel series that feels like cashgrab and can't reach the quality of the original
    And the last part is going to be....
    4: Sell the rights to your series to Disney

    This is what happens when you try to make 10 movies/too many fucking books to count about a world that's just ours except there's one school for magicians.
    Worldbuilding requires a WORLD. A singular place is not a world. It's the equivelant of making a franchise where the local McDonald's sells furniture.

  • Estêvão de Oliveira Passos

    Write your own darn book then. When they're as successful as Harry Potter, you can then produce a prequel as good as your standards. See, there's always 2 paths. Either you support what you love or go on and become a critic of you don't approve. The answer to your problems is rather simple: stop watching Harry Potter universe movies.
    Not gonna happen is it?

    I really liked the first movie and I'm a great Harry Potter fan and wanted to saw this with my friends, who also like Harry Potter.
    Then they watched it without me and I was really really pissed, because of that. They also said it was sooooo goood and I haaaave to watch it. Then I asked my brother and father who also watched it without me... and they said no don't watch it it's not good.
    Oh yes I hate my Harry Potter fanboy friends, but now I'm glad that I didn't watch it. Thank you all, you saved me many times, but I'm also really mad anyway.

    All I'm waiting for is the battle between Dumbledore and Grindlewald, which could have been written in 1-3 movies that actually make sense. But no, we get "Pokemon the Harry Potter spin-off" which somehow weaves the Grindlewald conflict into the story and they need 5 cash grab movies to resolve that whole mess.

  • Katie Zellers
    Katie Zellers 3 days ago

    I just watched Fantastic Beasts for the first time, and I liked it a lot. I may be biased for the actor who played Newt though. I completely agree with the fact that a direct sequel wasn't necessary at all. But before I had seen the first one and I had only seen this video, I thought that the people were literally obliviated and it just didn't work on Jacob. But that's not the case, obviously there are a lot of conveniences for crimes of grindalwald, but it is set up that the stuff newt uses with the Phoenix works particularly well with bad memories, so I dont get the problem there.

    I REALLY hope that Quinnie is the actual reason why the muggle man whose name I forgot gained back his memory. It would make kind of sense, since she's so obsessed with him and even brainwashed him with love potions. But tbh even then this script would be pretty weird imo.

    Another thing; Why does Queenie think team Grindel is good for her and Jacob? That a world where muggles are 'of other value' will allow them to be happily married? A second after Grindelwald mentions 'muggles' in his speech, one of his followers literally shouts "VERMIN!". Why would Jacob feel safe in that world? Why would Queenie believe that he would be? And if the whole way Grindel had of recruiting Queenie rely on her belief that it would let her and Jacob 'be free'- THEN WHY DOES SHE JOIN GRINDELWALD *AFTER* JACOB REFUSES TO FOLLOW? She no longer can fufill her dream of a family with Jacob so she will get nothing from it- In fact at that point its obvious that going with team Grindelwald would be the only thing ensuring that she cant be with Jacob at all. What an obvious and stupid way to force the Queenie onto the other side for tension and as a plot asset for the villains in the future.

    to "fix" the teleportation issue it could've just said like „hey it's actually dumbledore (or someone else) who invented the spell to teleport, but only after the film when he got to see the teleporting beast and copied it's ability.“ then, it could've referenced the scene where he told Harry how normally they get sick the first time and then showing a scene how he told every one about his teleportation spell and saw how they got sick from it or something. (idk im not a Harry Potter nerd who knows all about its lore so it could make more problems than it fixes) the pulver teleportation thing could be because it was incredibly rare at the time or something like that shit...

    another thing is: i dont have a problem with dumbledore being gay because dumbledores character isn't defined by him being gay but that he's motherfucking dumbledore: the smartest and strongest wizard...Joke Rowling changing the other characters is bad tho because it fucks with already fully developed characters...instead of just adding something to them.

    Ever thought about the possibility that ariana dumbledore is actually transgender, had her transition at the age of 10 because wizards in the 1890s were way ahead of their time, than faked her death and run away from home because fuck supportive parents. Now identifying as Aurelius she would become addicted to drugs which eventually caused some brain damage so she would lose all her memorys and she would end up in this orphanage from the first movie where they call her whatever ezra millers character was named again. Also for some crazy reason even though Ariana was born in 1885 she would still look like she is in her late teens or so at the beginning of the first movie and the mystery behind this is actually the cliff hanger of the next movie.
    And by the way I didnt fucked the pronouns up, because while identifiyng as male and naming herself Aurelius she would still like people to refer to her as she/her because gender-identity crises are some complicated and individual shit and this is a fucking diverse story.
