In an effort to thwart Grindelwald's plans of raising pure-blood wizards to rule over all non-magical beings, Albus Dumbledore enlists his former student Newt Scamander, who agrees to help, though he's 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.Written by

Grindelwald's mustache keeps changing in length, especially in the second part of the movie. Sometimes it's shaven above his upper lip and sometimes it hangs 'on' his lip. See more »
[to Picquery; about Grindelwald]
... you'll be glad to get rid of him, I expect.
We'd be more than happy to keep him here in custody.
Six months are enough. It's time for him to answer for his crimes in Europe.
[meets them at Grindelwald's door]
President Picquery, Mr. Spielman, sir. Prisoner is secured and ready to travel.
[peers into the cell with Picquery]
You've thrown everything at him, I see.

I love Harry Potter, I have been reading and watching HP since the first book was released. I went to the theatre with an open mind. I saw negative reviews and a lot of positive ones. It pains me to give this movie a bad review. The reason I gave this movie 3 stars was due to the chinese cat dragon monster which was quite hilarious.
1. Special effects were good
2. Jude Law as Dumbledore works well
3. Newt is still an awesome character
1. Absolutely No Storyline
2. There were No actual crimes commited by Grindlewald
3. Johnny Depp should never have been cast as Grindlewald
4. Too many irrelevant characters
5. Disregards all of the known information about the wizarding world
Anyone that has read or watched Harry Potter would immediately notice that things do not add up. I enjoyed the first movie in the Fantastic Beast series because it was different. If they are going to bring in characters from Harry Potter at least make it historically correct. If this movie did not have the Harry Potter fans it would have been a complete flop. I am very disappointed in J.K. Rowling, this is well below her standards for writting. I think David Yates should have been canned after the the Half Blood Prince movie was released. He managed to butcher one of the best books in the series, this is a repeat of that debacle. The extended trailor was better than the 2 hour long movie.
