Professor Albus Dumbledore knows the powerful, dark wizard Gellert Grindelwald is moving to seize control of the wizarding world. Unable to stop him alone, he entrusts magizoologist Newt Scamander to lead an intrepid team of wizards and witches. They soon encounter an array of old and new beasts as they clash with Grindelwald's growing legion of followers.

Fantastic Beasts: The Secrets of Dumbledore Review

Once again directed by David Yates, the movie follows Newt Scamander (Eddie Redmayne) and his friends as they aid Albus Dumbledore (Jude Law) in stopping his former lover, Gellert Grindelwald (Mads Mikkelsen) from taking over both the Wizarding World and the world of Muggles. The result is an entertaining conclusion to an otherwise pointless spinoff series that never quite recaptures the magic of the 'Harry Potter' films but does feature strong performances from Jude Law, Mads Mikkelsen, Dan Fogler, and Alison Sudol.
