The second in the prequel series continues to explore the pre-Harry Potter world. Only this time, the stakes are high, as love and loyalty are put to the test. As the powerful Dark Wizard Gellert Grindelwald grows stronger, his chilling revolutionary agenda unravels – pure-blood wizards must dominate and rule over non-magical folks. Affable and quick-witted Newt must navigate uncertain waters with trusted friend Jacob and old flame Tina Goldstein, to avert the most malevolent wizard alive!
While recreating the enchanting 1920s, this movie heightens magical bestiary, villainy and suspense. Pivotal characters get more depth and the Rowling’s magical universe expands exponentially, to the delight of Potter-heads. Nominated for Best Production Design and Best Special Visual Effects at the 72nd British Academy Film Awards, the movie offers a truly wondrous visual treat.
Eddie Redmayne reprises his role of lovable Newt, while Jude Law showcases a charming impishness reminiscent of older Dumbledore. Johnny Depp gives a bone-chilling performance as the titular character, while Zoe Kravitz’s Leta Lestrange and Ezra Miller’s Credence add intrigue to this world of spells and secrets.
