Against the odds, we managed to get to see "Fantastic Beasts 2" with the girls and Sam and Bonnie tonight. It was an interesting film to watch, although Gretchen felt that it was so dark and difficult to follow that she's tempted to watch future installments of the series at home.
Sam (our Potterverse expert) thinks that the canon has been just a wee bit rumpled by this film. I'm waiting for more data, myself. :)
