Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them

New this week Plot hole: When Frick (the griffin) releases the amnesia liquid over New York, every No-Maj's mind is wiped, including those inside buildings. If that were to happen, there would not have been any time for a goodbye with Jacob, as the rain would have wiped him the second he was above ground. If the spell had given time for a goodbye, everyone inside buildings should remember the Obscurus attack and the spell would be pointless.

New this month Other mistake: When Newt gives Jacob a suitcase full of eggs, he bumps into him, apparently swapping suitcases. If you watch carefully, the suitcases don't actually switch.

Factual error: At one point, Newt Scamander says he found one of his beasts in Equatorial Guinea. That country only got that name after independence from Spain in 1968; back in 1926, when the movie is set, the place was known as Spanish Guinea.

Factual error: A theater marquee is visible promoting the showing of a film called Tribeca Follies. The acronym "Tribeca" - an amalgamation of "Triangle Below Canal [Street]" - didn't come into usage until the 1970s.

Cubs Fan

Continuity mistake: When Newt chases one of his creatures through Central Park, the park is covered in snow and people are ice skating on a frozen pond. At any other time directly before or immediately after this scene and throughout the movie, there is no snow anywhere, and people are dressed for moderate weather.

Trivia

Because so little architecture from the decade still exists, David Yates chose not to shoot on location; instead, the production designers created, from scratch, their own painstakingly detailed version of 1920s New York as a practical, physical set.
