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 real 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, who's 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.

J. K. Rowling published a new book from the same universe as Harry Potter's a few months ago, so we knew a movie was coming soon ... And here we are, starting a whole new saga of, apparently, 5 movies. For the first time, Rowling decided to also be part of the movie development, contributing as the screenwriter for this film and for the ones to come, so there's a lot of high expectations for this series.

70 years before the events on Harry Potter, Newt Scamander (Eddie Redmayne) is looking around New York City for some magical creatures that escaped his unusual suitcase and trying to catch them before other wizards do. These creatures are feared by the magical community who defines them as dangerous, but Newt thinks the opposite: the beasts are friendly and kind for the ones that are the same to them, so this makes his mission secret, complicated and with a lot of adventures.
