Set after the event in Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them. Newt Scamander (Eddie Redmayne) is tasked by Albus Dumbledore to find Credence Barebone (Ezra Miller) before Gellert Grindelwaldand and his dark allies find and use him to terminate the human world.

David Yates the director of four Harry Potter Films and now lead the helmet for this Fantastic Beats franchise comes back with its second film Fantastic Beasts and The Crimes of Grindelwald. Eddie Redmayne, Katherine Waterston, Dan Fogler, Alison Sudol, Ezra Miller, Johnny Depp all back reprises their role. While Jude Law is casted as Dumbledore. And Law practically did a very good job, all the scenes he�s in is fantastic. Zoe Kravitz also deserves a credit to play Leta Lestrange and Claudia Kim as Nagini.

Compared to the first film, this second one is much better and the film still involved a lot of fantastic creatures and were put magically into visuals. With a more exciting, intrigued plot, the film still carry the same tone as the first but not as dark as the first. This film leaves the audience with lots of questions on what�s to come but somehow still gives a satisfying ending. This film captivates audiences eyes from the beginning to end. Great job to J.K Rowling, David Yates and the rest of the cast and crew! According to Rowling this franchise would consists of five films. Can�t wait for another sequel of this fantastic film!
