Fantastic Beasts: The Crimes of Grindelwald, J.K. Rowling
The powerful Dark wizard Gellert Grindelwald has been captured in New York with the help of Newt Scamander. But, making good on his threat, Grindelwald escapes custody and sets about gathering followers, most unsuspecting of his true agenda: to raise up pure-blood wizards to rule over all non-magical beings. In an effort to thwart Grindelwald’s plans, Albus Dumbledore enlists Newt, his former Hogwarts student, who agrees to help once again, 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.
Fantastic Beasts: The Crimes of Grindelwald is the second screenplay in a five-film series to be written by J. K. Rowling, author of the internationally best-selling Harry Potter books. Set in 1927, a few months after the events after Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them, and moving from New York to London, Paris, and even back to Hogwarts, this story of mystery and magic reveals an extraordinary new chapter in the wizarding world.
