    The Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them film starring Eddie Redmayne was a magical treat that followed Newt Scamander all the way to New York City.

    In its sequel, The Crimes of Grindelwald, the Magizoologist makes his way back to Hogwarts for a meeting with Albus Dumbledore (Jude Law) and then over to Paris as Gellert Grindelwald (Johnny Depp) starts to gather followers for his dark uprising...

    Assisted by sisters Tina (Katherine Waterston) and Queenie (Alison Sudol) Goldstein and No-Maj Jacob Kowalski, Newt has to help Dumbledore stop Grindelwald before it's too late.

It lets Muggles of all ages know what happened in the Wizarding World in the time before Harry Potter...
