2016 | DIR. DAVID YATES | REVIEW BY GLENN COCHRANE.
The familiar and weathered Warner Bros. logo drifts towards the screen, followed by those iconic stormy clouds, and suddenly we are whisked back to a familiar place where wizards and goblins live in the spaces between. Where we once found ourselves soaring above the Hogwarts School of Wizardry, we are now in a different place, where the stories are unknown and the characters are new. It also happens to be several decades before Harry, Hermoine and Ronald walked through platform 9 3⁄4, a period that feels even more suited to the creations of author JK Rowling.
