The Crimes of Grindelwald is a direct sequel to Fantastic Beasts and Where To Find Them, and a prequel to the beloved Harry Potter franchise. The worlds are vastly interconnected and we begin to see their ties more and more as the Beasts world progresses. In follow up to the last, after being recruited by Albus Dumbledore, we are to follow Newt Scamander, Tina, Jacob, and Company as they fight the battle against Grindelwald (Johnny Depp) – one of the most powerful wizards who seeks to dis-empower muggles (non-magic folk) by using Credence (Ezra Miller)…once we truly understand who he is, that is.
On this bonus podcast episode, we discuss what we think of the Wizarding World to this point, our spoiler-free thoughts on The Crimes of Grindelwald, and then we move in to spoiler territory - with a fair warning - to break down the main characters, the weaknesses, and the strengths of this sequel. The Crimes of Grindelwald is vastly splitting the J.K. Rowling fandom world, so listen in to find out why!
