Fantastic Beasts: The Crimes of Grindelwald is the second film in the Fantastic Beasts franchise, a film series taking place in the extended Harry Potter universe. It was released on November 16, 2018.

The film provoked some controversy amongst fans due to some apparent retconning by J.K. Rowling (who wrote the screenplay), and inconsistencies with established facts and timelines in the original Harry Potter book series.


Fan Reception


so uh

queenie drugged the guy she was dating, took him to another continent, left him there with no knowledge of what had happened or means of getting home, then joined up with the people who’d much like to see him dead

and she’s still meant to be sympathetic to us

what the hell is this writing[1]

– fanonical

also apparently being half house elf is a thing now so you know feel free to think too much about that[2]

– fanonical

so credence was born in 1901 according to the hp wiki which, fair enough, not strictly canon but it works. i mean, he’s not implied to be that old, mid-twenties at the time of fantastic beasts/crimes of grindelwald makes sense except kendra and percival dumbledore were dead by the end of 1899. so, you know. there’s that.[3]

– fanonical

regarding the timeline issues in crimes of grindelwald…like the hp wiki’s been around for years, joanne, you couldn’t even give it a quick glance? it’s absurdly detailed[4]
