Trivia

The first rumors had evoked Christian Bale, Benedict Cumberbatch and then Jared Harris (Moriarty Sherlock Holmes 2 who is none other than the son of the late Richard Harris, Albus Dumbledore's interpreter in the first two Harry Potter) to play Albus Dumbledore young . But it was finally Jude Law who was chosen to play the director of Hogwarts in The Fantastic Beasts: The Crimes of Grindelwald. If Harris had been selected, he would have found Law, his enemy of Sherlock Holmes 2. See more »

Quotes

[from trailer]
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.

A filler for better things to come.
14 November 2018 | by jeetubhat30-233-646934See all my reviews

Although a lot was promised in the trailers, it falls short of those promises in the movie. Having said that, this movie is much like Deathly Hallows Part 1 in the sense that it does not stand out when watched in isolation but understandable in the greater scheme of things, as it sets up the future movies perfectly without offering much on its own. The acting did a good job although the script doesn't allow for anyone to standout apart from Johnny Depp, who seems to make audiences aware of the fact that he's Johnny Depp every once in a while. Overall, I feel this movie will be better received when its sequels come out, but mediocre as it stands.
