From the imagination of Wizarding World Creator J.K. Rowling comes to the Fantastic Beasts movie series, Magic Adventures set before Harry Potter. At the end of the first movie, the powerful dark wizard Gellert Grindelwald (Johnny Depp) was captured by the MACUSA (Magical Congress of United States of America), using Newt Scamander (Eddie Redmayne). But he did well for his threat, Grindelwald avoided persecution and set about gathering followers, most unsuspecting of his true agenda: raising purebred wizards to rule over all non-magical beings. In an attempt to destroy Grindelwald's plans, Albus Dumbledore (Jude Law) leaves his former student Newt Scamander, who agrees to help, unaware of the dangers ahead. Lines are drawn as love and loyalty tested, even among the real friends and family, in an increasingly fragmented world.
