Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them ★★★½

I'm ready for four more of these. Some parts are thinly-sketched, but it's got a lot going for it and enough mystery that I want to see play out. It's wildly lacking DIVERSITY in the cast, which is really inexcusable. Newton-Howard's score works great in the film, and the crafts are all superb: sets, costumes, etc.
