Alexis and Mallory dig into the themes of Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them and find some nice gold nuggets after sifting away the obvious...

  • Misfits and Misunderstandings—how the universal theme of the Harry Potter series translates to Newt and company, and how deception is used as well
  • Friendships—the other Harry Potter theme that pervades within the film
  • Humanity—what does it mean to be human? How does that relate to being animal? How do Newt's goals to nurture, rescue, protect, and educate relate to how we should treat each other?
