fantastic beasts and where to find them cast

Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them has received glowing praise from critics in the build up to its release in the UK on Friday. 

The film marks the first of a five-part series, and takes place approximately 70 years before the events of the Harry Potter films.

Writing on behalf of The Guardian, Peter Bradshaw gave the film five stars and described it as 'a very Rowling universe, dense with fun.'

Elsewhere The Independent, The Times and The Telegraph all awarded the picture four stars, with the general consensus pointing towards a charming and visually appealing film.

Whilst there were a handful of less positive reviews, the film appears to be generally very well received, and Harry Potter fans will no doubt be highly excited for its release later this week.
