The Fantastic Beasts Sequel Ends With a Big Twist, but Does It Have a Postcredits Scene?

The Fantastic Beasts Sequel Ends With a Big Twist, but Does It Have a Postcredits Scene?
Fantastic Beasts: The Crimes of Grindelwald has hit theaters, and with it comes a whole lot of questions. For instance, what the hell is up with all those crisscrossing, nonsensical timelines? How was that McGonagall cameo possible? And how in the hell is that twist with Credence going to work out? All the nostalgic Harry Potter Easter eggs in the world can't make up for the wild, out-of-left-field plot choices the sequel to Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them makes scene after scene. But there's one thing we can do: confirm whether there's an end credits scene.

Since the prequel series is going to be five movies total, that means plenty of crazy storylines about Newt, Hot Young Dumbledore, Grindelwald, Tina, and the rest of the characters await us in the years to come. That's why we would've totally expected a brief scene postcredits hinting at what we might expect from our favorite magizoologist.

Harry Potter: 25 Things Dumbledore Did Between Fantastic Beasts And Sorcerer's Stone

Albus Dumbledore is truly the most respected and revered wizard in the Harry Potter universe, with his incredible skill and genius intellect being both respected and feared by other members of the wizarding community. Dumbledore became one of the highlights of the recently released Fantastic Beasts: The Crimes of Grindelwald, which showed that even in the 1920s, Albus Dumbledore was still widely revered. In the movie, one of Grindelwald's followers even referred to Dumbledore as "The Great Albus Dumbledore," a title that stuck around for decades after. But what was it that made Dumbledore so great? It wasn't just that he was a teacher / Headmaster, or that he mentored Harry Potter. Long before the Harry Potter franchise began, Dumbledore had already changed the Wizarding World countless times, with his achievements going down in history. Some even considered Albus Dumbledore to be the greatest wizard of all time, being even greater than Merlin.

Does ‘Ralph Breaks the Internet’ Have a Post-Credits Scene?

Disney has dropped its sequel to “Wreck-It Ralph,” “Ralph Breaks the Internet,” over the Thanksgiving holiday week, and hopes to entertain families with its meta humor about movies and the world at large and, of course, the internet.

Given that “Ralph Breaks the Internet” makes this whole “Wreck-It Ralph” thing a franchise now, you might be wondering if it follows in the footsteps of many other big movie series by including some kind of bonus content or teases during and/or after the credits. Or if it does what “Fantastic Beasts: The Crimes of Grindelwald” did and not indulge the post-credits scene craze that was popularized by Marvel.

So, once the credits roll on “Ralph Breaks the Internet,” do you need to stay in your seat for extra #content or is it safe to run to the bathroom as soon at the movie proper ends?

Ezra Miller Breaks His Silence on That Fantastic Beasts Reveal: "I Was Shocked"

Love it or hate it, there's one thing you can't deny about Fantastic Beasts: The Crimes of Grindelwald. It has people talking. Avid fans of J.K. Rowling's ever-expanding wizarding world are up in arms about the second installment in the five-movie series. There are all kinds of issues with the presence of Minerva McGonagall, there's an utter void when it comes to Albus Dumbledore's sexuality, and that's really just the tip of the iceberg. But there's one reveal (the film's biggest twist) that really has us all scratching our heads: according to Grindelwald, Credence Barebone is actually a Dumbledore.

Forget the fact that Albus only has one confirmed brother and one ill-fated sister in the Harry Potter books; anything can happen in a world that's been imbued with magic and mysticism! Of course, everyone's going wild trying to figure out what in the hell is going on. Luckily for us,

‘Ralph Breaks the Internet’ Set to Lead Overstuffed Thanksgiving Box Office

‘Ralph Breaks the Internet’ Set to Lead Overstuffed Thanksgiving Box Office
The Grinch” and “Fantastic Beasts: The Crimes of Grindelwald” are about to get a lot of company at movie theaters nationwide this Thanksgiving weekend. Four wide releases will be hitting theaters, with Disney’s “Ralph Breaks the Internet” expected to top the charts for the lucrative five-day holiday period.

Disney is projecting a five-day launch for the “Wreck-It Ralph” sequel of around $68 million, while independent trackers are looking at an opening of approximately $72 million. That would be a big step up from the $49 million three-day opening that “Wreck-It Ralph” made back in March 2012.

But it’s very possible that “Ralph” could overperform. Interest in the film has been high since Disney released a trailer featuring Sarah Silverman’s Vanellope von Schweetz meeting the Disney Princesses, and Fandango reported that presales for the film on their site are beating those of Disney’s 2016 Thanksgiving release “Moana,” which had an $82 million five-day opening.

'Wreck-It Ralph' & 'Creed' Sequels Headed Toward Big Thanksgiving Debuts

'Wreck-It Ralph' & 'Creed' Sequels Headed Toward Big Thanksgiving Debuts
As the month rolls on, the yearly box office will receive a generous boost from this long, holiday weekend. The five-day Thanksgiving frame will see Disney debut the animated sequel Ralph Breaks the Internet, MGM will come out punching with Creed II and Lionsgate's release of Robin Hood will hope to steal some of the leftover loot. Additionally, carryover films such as Fantastic Beasts: The Crimes of Grindelwald and The Grinch will add their own contributions to the bottom line. At the top of the box office, look for Disney Animation's Ralph Breaks the Internet to give the studio the Thanksgiving crown for the third year in a row. Last year Coco delivered a $72.9 million five-day opening while the year before that Moana brought in a massive $82 million, the second largest five-day Thanksgiving opening of all-time. In fact, Disney owns ten of the top eleven five-day Thanksgiving openings

Here's a Breakdown of the Entire Lestrange Family, Because It's Very Confusing

In the original Harry Potter series, the name Lestrange is synonymous with unwavering loyalty to Voldemort. The poster child of the family is, unanimously, Bellatrix Lestrange, who Helena Bonham Carter brings to life in a delightfully evil performance. The family becomes important once more in Fantastic Beasts: The Crimes of Grindelwald after we learn about Newt's dear friend Leta Lestrange and her connection with Credence Barebone.

Between five Corvus's and varying levels of involvement in the two Wizarding Wars, the Lestrange family definitely gets knotty. Even Yusuf Kama had to draw it all out while investigating Credence's relationship to the pure-blood family. If you're confused about who's who, keep reading as we break down the twisty Lestrange family tree!

Fantastic Beasts 2 is Queerbaiting That Puts Dumbledore Back in the Closet

Delia Harrington Nov 20, 2018

Despite J.K. Rowling insisting on Dumbledore being gay, her Fantastic Beasts 2 script does its hardest to hide that fact.

This article contains Fantastic Beasts: The Crimes of Grindelwald spoilers.

Back in 2007, J.K. Rowling revealed that she had always thought of Dumbledore as gay, eventually setting in motion Fantastic Beasts: The Crimes of Grindelwald as a highly anticipated movie. As previously hinted at, the future headmaster had been in a relationship with Grindelwald and eventually goes on to take him down in what has been described as the greatest dual of all time. But in the finished Fantastic Beasts 2 film, viewers were not treated to any insight into how this romantic relationship affects Dumbledore’s decision to take on Grindelwald, nor will we ever be. Instead Fantastic Beasts 2 re-closets Dumbledore in an act of queer-baiting that is a detriment to the story it’s trying to tell.

Here's What to Know About the Dreamy Brit Behind Theseus Scamander

  • Popsugar
The Wizarding World has continued to expand with the installation of Fantastic Beasts: The Crimes of Grindelwald, and this time, J.K. Rowling introduces us to Newt Scamander's brave but rule-abiding Auror brother Theseus. He's a bit of a proto-Percy Weasley type with a sinewy build, head of curly hair, and (mostly) fierce devotion to his job at the Ministry of Magic. Alongside new big names in the magical universe such as Zoë Kravitz and Jude Law, English actor Callum Turner brings the stern wizard to life in the Harry Potter prequel.

Turner has been a creative powerhouse in the entertainment industry, as he's tried out his hand in modeling, television, theater, and film. A London native, he grew up as an only child in a single mother family in Chelsea. His desire to learn about the world beyond the structure of school whisked him outside his hometown and into the

Thanksgiving Box Office Battle: ‘Ralph Breaks the Internet’ to Top ‘Creed II,’ ‘Robin Hood’
A boxing heavyweight champion and an outlaw with a bow and arrow will be no match for a video game baddie and his trusty sidekick as “Ralph Breaks the Internet” looks to dominate a busy Thanksgiving weekend at the domestic box office.

Disney’s animated sequel is expected to earn between $67 million and $77 million over the five-day period, which would easily best fellow newcomers “Creed II” and “Robin Hood.” The trio of wide releases are all getting a head start on the weekend by opening on Wednesday.

‘Fantastic Beasts’ Ending Reveal: Even Ezra Miller Isn’t Taking It ‘As Gospel’

‘Fantastic Beasts’ Ending Reveal: Even Ezra Miller Isn’t Taking It ‘As Gospel’
[Editor’s note: The following post contains spoilers for “Fantastic Beasts: The Crimes of Grindelwald.”]

Many stories swirl though David Yates’ overstuffed “Fantastic Beasts: The Crimes of Grindelwald,” but most converge on one question: Just who is the orphaned Credence Barebone? In the first film, “Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them,” Ezra Miller entered the franchise as a strange wizard so filled with fear, anger, and repression that it transformed him into an Obscurial, the human host of an Obscurus (a magic parasite born of bad feelings and withheld magic). While his background was murky, it came as little surprise that the odd magic that Credence possessed would be intriguing to the evil Gellert Grindelwald.

By the time the first film concluded, Credence’s scary magic nearly destroyed New York City, and he was believed dead. What “The Crimes of Grindelwald” supposes is he didn’t die, but fled America to join a magic circus and continue his
