Fantasy adventure sequel directed by David Yates, with a screenplay by Rowling. We follow the story as the powerful Dark wizard Gellert Grindelwald (Johnny Depp) was captured by MACUSA (Magical Congress of the United States of America), with the help of Newt Scamander (Eddie Redmayne). But, making good on his threat, Grindelwald escaped custody and has set about gathering followers, most unsuspecting of his true agenda: to raise pure-blood wizards up to rule over all non-magical beings.
In an effort to thwart Grindelwald’s plans, Albus Dumbledore (Jude Law) enlists his former student Newt Scamander, who agrees to help, 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.REVIEWS
Young Newt Scamander: I’m scared, Professor Dumbledore.
Albus Dumbledore: Everyone is scared of something.
Albus Dumbledore: Newt, you’re up next.
[we see an office desk with a typewriter and files on it]
Albus Dumbledore: That’s an unusual one. What Mr. Scamander fears above everything else is…
Young Newt Scamander: Having to work in an office, sir.
Albus Dumbledore: Go ahead, Newt.
Young Newt Scamander: Riddikulus!
Gellert Grindelwald: My brothers. My sisters. The clock is ticking faster. My dream, we live for truth, for love. The moment has come to take our rightful place in the world where we wizards are free. Join me, or die.
Gellert Grindelwald: Magic blooms only in rare souls. Still we must skulk in the shadows. But the old ways serve us no longer.
Gellert Grindelwald: Their arrogance is the key to our victory.
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 that Newt is not a great follower of orders.
Albus Dumbledore: An address.
Newt Scamander: What’s that?
Albus Dumbledore: A safe house in Paris.
Newt Scamander: Why would I need a safe house in Paris?
Albus Dumbledore: Should things at some point go terribly wrong, it’s good to have a place to go, you know, for a cup of tea.
Albus Dumbledore: I take it you’ve heard the rumors. Grindelwald had a vision that he will rise to dominance over the Wizarding World.
Newt Scamander: So you’re asking me to help hunt him down.
[referring to Grindelwald]
Newt Scamander: Do you want me to hunt him down, to kill him?
Albus Dumbledore: Do you know why I admire you, Newt? You do not seek power. You simply ask, “Is the thing right?”
Newt Scamander: Dumbledore, why can’t you go?
Albus Dumbledore: I cannot move against Grindelwald. It has to be you. In your shoes, I’d probably refuse too. It’s late. Good evening, Newt.
Newt Scamander: Oh, come on.
Wizard: The wizarding and non-wizarding worlds have been at peace for over a century. Grindelwald wants to see that peace destroyed.
Wizard: You underestimate your talents, Mr. Scamander.
Albus Dumbledore: Muggles are not lesser. Not disposable.
Theseus Scamander: The time is coming when you’re going to have to pick a side.
Newt Scamander: I, I don’t do sides.
Jacob Kowalski: Are you going somewhere?
Newt Scamander: No. We’re going somewhere.
Jacob Kowalski: Genius!
Newt Scamander: You don’t suffer from motion sickness, do you?
Jacob Kowalski: I don’t do well on boats.
Newt Scamander: You’ll be fine.
[Newt makes them apparate]
Leta Lestrange: You’re too good, Newt. You never met a monster you couldn’t love.
Gellert Grindelwald: Mr. Scamander, do you think Dumbledore will mourn for you?
Jacob Kowalski: Are you a ghost?
Nicolas Flamel: No, I’m alive. But I’m an alchemist and therefore immortal.
Jacob Kowalski: Oh.
Nicolas Flamel: Nicolas Flamel.
[he offers his hand to Jacob.
Jacob Kowalski: Jacob Kowalski.
[Flamel winces when Jacob squeezes his hand to shake it]
Jacob Kowalski: You don’t look a day over three-seventy-five.
Tina Goldstein: What are you going to do?
Newt Scamander: I’ll think of something.
[after they stop Theseus from attacking them]
Tina Goldstein: That’s your brother?
Newt Scamander: I think that might have been the best moment of my life.
