Fantastic Beasts: Crimes of Grindelwald featured the adventures of Magizoologist Newt Scamander (Eddie Redmayne) as he teams up with Albus Dumbledore in his fight against Gerald Grindelwald. The 2018 fantasy film also showed how Gerald Grindelwald has created his own army and has brainwashed Credence Barebone (Ezra Miller) into believing that his real name is Aurelius Dumbledore, Albus' long-lost brother and the only person powerful enough to kill him.

Fantastic Beasts: Crimes of Grindelwald was praised by several for its production value and how much it relates to the Harry Potter universe.
