The Wizarding World spinoff series continues with a closer look into the dark prehistory of Potter.

After wreaking havoc in Paris and building a militant hate movement against muggles, dark wizard Gellert Grindelwald starts manipulating the magical world’s bureaucracies in his favour, with little standing between him and supreme political power. To stop him, Hogwarts teacher Albus Dumbledore, magizoologist Newt Scamander and their plucky muggle friend Jacob form a crack team -but lasting ties, forbidden powers, and terrible past mistakes make their fight far from straightforward. Mads Mikkelsen as a replacement Grindelwald, becomes a charismatic, subtle, and convincingly dangerous villain, giving the prequels a threat and weight that new revelations only add to. Stalwart Potter director David Yates leads a skilled cast and crew in making its world richer than ever.
