Trivia

The renewed casting of Johnny Depp as Gellert Grindelwald (a role he had briefly played in Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them (2016)) caused considerable controversy among fans, due to Depp's highly publicized divorce which was accompanied by allegations of domestic abuse (which he denied). Writer J.K. Rowling, however, has defended the casting choice, releasing statements in which she fully supports Depp's involvement in the film and its upcoming sequels. See more »

Quotes

Torquil Travers: I have some questions for you, Professor.
Albus Dumbledore: This is a surprise.
Torquil Travers: There's a rumor that Newt Scamander is headed to Paris. I know he's working under your orders. What do you have to say for yourself, Dumbledore?
Albus Dumbledore: If you'd ever had the pleasure to teach him... you'd know Newt is not a great follower of orders.

Wow... Not in a good way
12 November 2018 | by toastthatisbutteredSee all my reviews

I never review movies but I had to make an account for this one.

I enjoyed the first one for what it was. But this one... the first one was a blatant cash grab on the Harry Potter franchise but it didn't feel like it. This did however. It didn't feel natural. This could have been a Marauders movie, or a next generation movie. Millions would have jumped to seen that. But we get this steaming pile of mediocre "entertainment". That's what this was. Insanely mediocre. The story, the characters, all of it, just the epitome of mediocre.

Depp: ignoring the controversy that surrounds his name, he just wasn't good in this movie. This was a severely miscast character.

2/10 don't waste your money. Wait for the DVD.
