The Crimes of Grindelwald {#8}: "We were closer than brothers."






+


At the end of the first film, the powerful Dark wizard Gellert Grindelwald (Depp) was captured by MACUSA
(Magical Congress of the United States of America), with the help of Newt Scamander (Redmayne).
But, making good on his threat, Grindelwald escaped custody and has set about gathering followers, most
unsuspecting of his true agenda: to raise pure-blood wizards up to rule over all non-magical beings.
In an effort to thwart Grindelwald’s plans, Albus Dumbledore (Law) enlists his former student Newt Scamander,
who agrees to help, 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.








CAST:

Eddie Redmayne as Newt Scamander
Porpentina “Tina” Goldstein, played by Katherine Waterston
Queenie Goldstein, played by Alison Sudol
Jacob Kowalski, played by Dan Fogler
Credence Barebone, played by Ezra Miller
Theseus Scamander, played by Callum Turner
Leta Lestrange, played by Zoe Kravitz
Professor Albus Dumbledore, played by Jude Law
Gellert Grindelwald, played by Johnny Depp

RELEASE DATE (of first movie): November 18, 2016
RELEASE DATE (of second movie): November 16, 2018

What we know (so far):
  • Eddie Redmayne and Katherine Waterston have been cast as the two leads.
  • It's based on Rowling's book of the same name.
  • It will be a total of five movies.
  • The screenplay is being written by J.K. Rowling, produced by Steve Kloves & David Heyman, and directed by David Yates.
  • It's neither a prequel nor a sequel to Harry Potter so it won't star any familiar wizards.

  • It's being filmed in the UK.

I didn't know about it until I looked for movies of Jude Law to watch and then I was surprised to see part 2.

I remember being excited when we found out about this prior to watching part 2. But ngl, Nagini was underutilized in the movie.

Me too! But all we got from her was that she's friend of Credence and that's basically it.

Especially since Nagini is a familiar "creature" from HP. It's kind of like with Nicolas Flamel in part 2. Another HP familiar character but was only added for an OMG moment and nothing else.

Yes but also...

Quote:
Nicolas Flamel (c. 1326 – c. 1992) was a French wizard and famed alchemist who was the only known maker of the Philosopher's Stone, a legendary substance with incredible powers. He was a close friend and partner with former Hogwarts Headmaster Albus Dumbledore. He owed his considerable age to the Elixir of Life, which was produced from the Stone, along with his wife Perenelle. He was well over six hundred years old as of 1992, being one of the oldest wizards in history.

So it was okay to bring back Flamel in part 2 since they were in France. What I still don't get is McGonagall and Nagini.
