Fantastic Beasts: The Crimes of Grindelwald - In Theaters November 16
Warner Bros. Pictures’ “Fantastic Beasts: The Crimes of Grindelwald” is the second of five all new adventures in J.K. Rowling’s Wizarding World™.
At the end of the first film, the powerful Dark wizard Gellert Grindelwald (Johnny Depp) was captured by MACUSA (Magical Congress of the United States of America), with the help of Newt Scamander (Eddie Redmayne). But, making good on his threat, Grindelwald escaped custody and has set about gathering followers, most unsuspecting of his true agenda: to raise pure-blood wizards up to rule over all non-magical beings.
In an effort to thwart Grindelwald’s plans, Albus Dumbledore (Jude Law) enlists his former student Newt Scamander, who agrees to help, unaware of the dangers that lie ahead. Lines are drawn as love and loyalty are tested, even among the truest friends and family, in an increasingly divided wizarding world.
The film features an ensemble cast led by Eddie Redmayne, Katherine Waterston, Dan Fogler, Alison Sudol, Ezra Miller, with Jude Law and Johnny Depp. The cast also includes, Zoë Kravitz, Callum Turner, Claudia Kim, William Nadylam, Kevin Guthrie, Carmen Ejogo, and Poppy Corby-Tuech.
“Fantastic Beasts: The Crimes of Grindelwald” is directed by David Yates, from a screenplay by J.K. Rowling. The film is produced by David Heyman, J.K. Rowling, Steve Kloves and Lionel Wigram.
Slated for release on November 16, 2018, the film will be distributed worldwide in 2D and 3D in select theatres and IMAX by Warner Bros. Pictures, a Warner Bros. Entertainment Company.
They should’ve hired the costume designers from the series “once upon a time”. Costumes in both FB films are muggle like, which is disappointing. Leta and Nicholas seem to be the only ones dressed in the wizardry manner
I'm not sure whether watching this everyday is a disease... if it is fellow potterheads we should all be in St.Mungo's by now ...
But isn't it wonderful that even when it feels like the whole world is falling apart things like this brings us together irrespective of nationality, religion, race , age or gender...
Miner032 If you love/enjoy Harry Potter then you should definitely read the books! They are a lot more quirky and less mainstream than the movies, they have a lot of dark things that were "too dark for the movies" (like a human being eaten alive by zombies or Voldemort digging out corpses from graves or him killing an entire family including children and even rape) and there are a lot of really sad character backstories (Regulus Black and Kreacher which have perhaps the saddest story in all of HP, Barty Crouch Jr's mother, McGonagall, Dumbledore, Hagrid, Rovena and Helena Rawenclaw and even Filch all have very sad backstories).
In addition to that, the story is a lot more coherent, there are little to no plot holes in the books as JK Rowling ties all loose ends, important characters/objects are introduced at least one or two books in advance, etc.
It's just a much better experience overall and if you have the time some day you should definitely check the books out!
Miner032 No, not really. This scene takes place presumably in Newt's 3rd year at Hogwarts. He was born in 1897 and would have been 13 in 1910. Remus Lupin was born in 1960 and his third year at Hogwarts was 1973 and by that time Dumbledore was the headmaster so he didn't teach Remus. This scene in general is just a throwback/easter egg to the fans. I wouldn't look too much into it if I were you.
Also it's been confirmed in a Pottermore article that Dumbledore was skilled in all areas of magic and taught DADA briefly before taking on the post of Transfiguration professor.
I'm hyperventilating really bad right now I need to see this movie. So excited going to wear my Hufflepuff shirt and my wand to this movie and I don't care what any one says. Did any one else notice that the showed Newton in school. This is getting my hopes up really bad that we might finally get to see the Hufflepuff common room. But every time I get my hopes up about something I'm always let down. Still I'm hyperventilating because not only I'm so excited for this movie but I know that it is going to be epic and amazing.
Mr Critical No he wasn't. He was most likely visiting Dumbledore or someone else in Hogwarts, perhaps even Hagrid who had just become the Care of Magical Creatures professor. He was 97 during the events of Prisoner of Azkanan and already retired.
If J.K. Rowling reads my comment. I wish you will, after Fantastic beast, create the story about other magical school. I really want to see what's happen in Beauxbatons or Durmstrang...especiallly for Beauxbatons because I just read your description about this school and it really beautiful.
Annatastic What we know, in brief:
1. Grindelwald is first imprisoned by MACUSA but then escapes and returns to Europe where he is gaining followers based on his ideology.
2. Newt informs Dumbledore about his run-in with Grindelwald in New York but Dumbledore says he cannot move against Grindelwald yet and sends newt to Paris where he encounters Nicholas Flamel who is potentially being targetted by Grindelwald for having the Philosopher's Stone.
3. There is a love triangle/rectanle situation going on. Tina likes Newt but Newt still has feelings for Leta Lestrange who hurt him and is engaged to his brother Theseus.
4. Credence becomes friends with Maladictus, a woman who is cursed to transform into a snake permanently and they join s circus.
All of these plot points will intertwine in Paris where the finale of the film will take place. What will happen, we don't know yet.
lowkey confused cause wasn’t dumbledore the transfiguration teacher? but boggarts are taught in defense against the dark arts class? also, did anyone notice what seemed to be young leta lestrange in the beginning behind young newt as he was facing the boggart?
I can't believe that people are still hating on Johnny Depp about that he abused his ex wife and that he ruins the box office. Well you see a lot of the movies he's been in the last few years have just been bad movies. And also about his domestic violence allegations, he only had one allegation, and it was proven in court that Amber Heard lied and made up those allegations. And also the police found no evidence of him doing domestic violence. Also Amber Heard withdrew her case after it was proven she lied. And Amber Heard admitted that she struck Johnny multiple times. Not only that, she cheated on Depp with many other women multiple times. Which this entire thing is why I don't like Amber Heard, she is the reason why Depp's career went down the toilet and why a lot of people don't like him anymore, she ruined his entire career and reputation.
i honestly think mostly of the hate against him because of that thing with his wife. Because he seems great on the trailer. But maybe 10% of people who think he wasnt a good choice actually said that because of some films he did.
People stopped liking Depp because they are sick of his same old over the top cartoonish acting. Weird for the sake of weird at the cost of character depth. People are tied of his "throw shit at the wall and see what sticks" style of acting
Look, I don't necessarily believe the allegations either because nothing was factually proven or denied, they settled in private... but you are miss informed: "it was proven in court that Amber Heard lied and made up those allegations" No it wasn't, you should be better informed before saying stuff like this.

As a child, there was a portrait in our family home in Paris that I always loved. Today, it’s known as Maya with Doll – but to me it was just a portrait of my mother, albeit a remarkable one. “Your grandfather was a painter,” she would say, whenever the subject of the canvas, one of many that hung around the house, came up in discussion. It was only when I began school, and whispers about my heritage started to follow me, that I realised what an understatement that was. My grandfather was far more than a painter. He was the defining figure of 20th-century art – and, as I would learn later from years of academic study, a true genius. It was a revelation that would shape the course of my life in many ways. When Picasso died – in 1973, the year before I was born – he left behind 45,000 works, not to mention personal objects and correspondence.
