I hope though, that even though The Aeronauts has decided to change some parts of the story, it will still remain truthful to the original experience of the Glaisher and Coxwell to pay tribute to their contributions to science, especially at a time when people were wary to venture into the unknown. What these pioneers did took courage and became the springboard for advancements we are enjoying today so I hope the movie manages to capture the wonder of discovery and inspire the viewers with these ideas.
All in all, Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them is the perfect vehicle to jumpstart yet another saga connected to Potterverse. It delivers on adventure, friendship, magic, wonder and possibilities that has been at the core of the franchise all this time. If I haven’t said it enough, Eddie Redmayne was the perfect choice to headline this new series because of his natural charisma and amazing acting skills. But most of all, Fantastic Beasts’ charm lies in its innocence and its effort to introduce the importance of the mythical creatures to the magical realm.
So all in all, the only crime that Fantastic Beasts: The Crimes of Grindelwald committed was hyping up this film so much when it should have been marketed as a transition film. This is also the reason that this powerhouse cast of talented actors seemed like they had nothing much to do in this installment so they shouldn’t get too much flak for doing what the script says. Could Crimes of Grindelwald have amped up the action, or just fleshed out the story just a bit? It definitely could have found better use of its 134 minute running time. But I feel confident that all this frustration will pay off in the connecting chapter. Fingers crossed, fellow Potterheads. Fingers crossed.
