J.K.Rowling’s wizarding world has returned with a spin-off prequel following Newt Scamander (Eddie Redmayne) on a quest to track down the magical creatures that escaped his suitcase, and that sounds just strange enough for us to talk about.
Jay Cluitt was joined by Kristen Lopez, Mario Brown, Tony Cogan and Bubbawheat to discuss Fantastic Beasts and Where To Find Them, along with the future of the franchise, fantasy Dumbledore casting, Kristen’s ever-expanding list of movie crushes, the topography of Arizona, and what is the worst Ron Perlman film?
Also on tap: Rants and Raves of the Week, a couple of games of Last Lamb Standing and some Fantastic Reviews and Where To Find Them.
