It’s book review time! In Fantastic Beasts: The Crimes of Grindelwald, we get a look at the much deeper wizarding laws in the 1920s in America, France and Britain as Newt Scamander and his companions continue to fight against the dark wizard, Gellert Grindelwald. It also introduces the audience to a middle-aged (hot!) Albus Dumbledore has yet to obtain the Elder Wand, which is still in his former lover’s hands. This screenplay was very well done. We love it more than the first one.

The story picks up months after Grindelwald was arrested in the previous film. He manages to escape prison with the help of his lackeys. This raises everyone’s heckles.

Newt, meanwhile, reunites his school crush, Leta Lestrange, who is now engaged to his older brother Theseus. Both characters had references in the previous film, including a mention of Theseus and a photo of Leta.

Moreover, seeing them together hurts Newt. However, it worsens when Newet arrives home to find his American friends, Jacob and Queenie, in his house. Queenie has Jacobie under a love spell where she is restricting his free will.

Newt confronts Queenie over what she is doing to Jacob, and she reluctantly lifts the spell. Jacob is horrified by Queenie’s actions.

It Ends Tragically

As the Crimes of Grindelwald progresses, people change allegiances because they have no choice or they die. There are several heartbreaking moments for various characters. One hits you right in the feels as it concerns where the character ends up in the next film’s finale. Finally, we pity Theseus when he suffers a massive loss.

Rating: 4 out of 5.
