J.K. Rowling wrote the script for the film, whose story begins in 1927, a few months after Newt helped uncover and capture the infamous magician Dark Gellert Grindelwald. However, as he promised he would, Grindelwald managed to escape spectacularly and has been gathering more followers for his cause: The rise of the magicians over any non-magical being. The only one who might be able to stop him is the magician, whom he once considered his best friend, Albus Dumbledore.
But Dumbledore will need the help of the magician who once thwarted the plans of Grindelwald, his former student Newt Scamander. The adventure brings together Newt with Tina, Queenie and Jacob, but his mission will also test the group’s loyalty as they face new dangers in an increasingly dangerous and divided magical world.
