   Fantastic Beasts: the crimes of Grindelwald is one of the most discussed movie of this year.

   After released the movie, it had a lot of criticism. Recording to Rotten Tomatoes, 60% of the audience liked the movie, Fantastic Beasts: and where to find them reached almost 80%.

   As you know ‘Fantastic Beasts’ is a spin-off/prequel of Harry Potter.

   The first Fantastic Beasts was really appreciated and well liked, it was like returning to Hogwarts.

  The theme of the film is the escape of the criminal Grindelwald and his history and the true love between Queenie Goldstein and Jacob Kowalski.  In this movie one of

the character to whom the whole story is, is again Credence.

Credence is a young boy that lost his parents and lives in an orphanage governed by a witch hunter. His childhood has been terrible during the time in the orphanage because the governor, Mary Lou, was strict and a hater.

  Also there is the presence of one of the main thing in the Harry Potter’s movies, we are talking about Nagini that’s the horcrux to kill Lord Voldemort.

  Fans, that are called Potterheads, also thought that Newt Scamander, the main character seems to be on the autism spectrum disorder, specifically the Asperger Syndrome, because when the Rowling described Newt to the actor Eddie Redmayne, they talked about some of his features, for example the way how he walks, his appearance and that he doesn’t like the eye contact, causing viewers to assume he was on the spectrum.

  Why people didn’t appreciate the second movie?

  The film demonstrates a lot of inconsistencies that don’t add up with the Harry Potter movie, for example one of the teacher McGonagall,  wouldn’t have been born yet.

  The main character of those two movies is the ‘writer’ of the book ‘Fantastic Beasts: and where to find them’, Newt Scamander, but the writer of the fantastic beasts screenplay, J.K Rowling does not confirm the presence of him in all the 5 Fantastic Beasts movies.

  A her recent tweet, mentioned that all the inconsistencies will be clarified, and that the next movie will take place in Rio De Janeiro, Brazil.

  The actual movie is filmed in Paris and it mentions other country like: the United States, England and Austria.

  In this movie there are a lot of characters that are from Hogwarts school and that are integrated in to the movies, such as: Albus Dumbledore, Minerva Mcgonagall, Newt Scamander, Nicholas Flamel, Grindelwald and more…

  An important part of the film is the end, that as a the majority of the movies it  does not end, but it leaves suspense and curiosity because it reveals something that no one could have think about and changes our thoughts for the history of Hogwarts and the characters.

  I think it was a good movie because it comes before the story of Harry Potter, and that’s fantastic for Harry Potter’s fans, and I am one of them. I always wanted to know the story of Nagini and the past of Dumbledore.
