We’ve been gifted a first look at Fantastic Beasts: The Crimes Of Grindelwald, the second movie from the Fantastic Beasts franchise.
Harry Potter’s magical world is expanding once more. Warner Brothers Pictures used the Revelio Charm to give fans a first look at Fantastic Beasts: The Crimes of Grindelwald. The follow up to the 2016 hit movie Fantastic Beasts And Where To Find Them, hits theatres on November 16th of 2018.
In Fantastic Beasts And Where To Find Them…
Newt Scamander goes to America to return one of his magical creatures to his home. Newt gets sidetracked when a No-Maj, Jacob, unintentionally releases some of the magical creatures. With the help of Jacob, Newt tracks down and recaptures the creatures.
While in New York, Newt gets caught up in the Magical Congress of the United States of America (MACUSA) investigation of an Obscurus. With Newt’s help, MACUSA defeats the Obscurus and reveals the truth about the Auror Percival Graves and captures the Dark Wizard, Gellert Grindelwald.
In Fantastic Beasts: The Crimes of Grindelwald…
Grindelwald escapes from MACUSA and is gathering his forces for his cause – Pure-Bloods ruling over the magical and non-magical worlds. One person may be able to stop the Dark Wizard, his old friend, Albus Dumbledore. Dumbledore enlists the aid of Newt to help in the recapture of Grindelwald.
The mission reunites Newt with American witches Porpentina ‘Tina,” her sister Queenie Goldstein and No-Maj friend Jacob Kowalski. As the wizarding world is dividing, a test of love and loyalty will be faced by everyone.
