Fantastic Beasts The Crimes of Grindlewald Review: An Adventurous Continuation

For years Harry Potter has played a major role in pop culture as the popular book series transcended from the page to the silver screen with 8 movies to its name; and it has become a big role in the world of cinema ever since. However, just when it seemed we had seen the last of the Wizarding World, the franchise would expand with 2016’s Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them. The film told the tale of Newt Schamander (Eddie Redmayne) and his adventure through a 1920 New York City. The movie was a hit to say the least and when it came to this Film Adventurer’s opinion it is among one of the best films in the Wizarding World franchise. Needless to say I found myself curious just where this new series would go next and it looks like I will get that answer in Fantastic Beasts: The Crimes Grindlewald. The Crimes of Grindlewald once again sees David Yates return to this Magical World to direct the new installment. This sequel had plenty riding on it as it not only had continue the story of the first film but also be the bridge to its sibling series. The end result was a sequel that, while not possessing the same magic of its predecessor, was still an enjoyable continuation.
