“Unbelievable Beasts: The Crimes of Grindelwald” makes some main strikes in tying itself to the “Harry Potter” mythology, and that suggests a couple of key displays from the lady in rate, J.Okay. Rowling.

The screenwriter of the “Beasts” prequel collection, Rowling ignites a warfare within the wizarding global within the new sequel, and since there aren’t any actual books to move with this franchise – just like the “Potter” films had – the shockers are much more so for Potterheads.

Spoiler alert! We are discussing plot issues integral to the top of the ‘Unbelievable Beasts’ sequel, so beware in the event you haven’t noticed it but.



THIS IS YOUR FINAL WARNING. (And likewise a positive time for a GIF of Johnny Depp atmosphere stuff on hearth.)

OK, let’s spoil the large displays down.

A hero takes a stroll at the darkish aspect.

Within the “Unbelievable” sequel, darkish wizard Gellert Grindelwald (Johnny Depp) gathers fans for his sinister plans for pure-blood wizards to rule the arena. Probably the most people who falls below his persuasive sway is thoughts reader Queenie Goldstein (Alison Sudol), whose romantic courting with No-Maj boyfriend Jacob (Dan Fogler) is not kosher with the paranormal regulation enforcement.

At a late-night rally at Pere Lachaise cemetery in Paris, the place Grindelwald presentations his devotees long term visions of Global Warfare II – rolling tanks, focus camps, nuclear explosions – caution of what occurs if wizards don’t take their “rightful position,” Queenie chooses to move with him slightly than stick with Jacob. It units up a possible sister-vs.-sister matchup between Queenie and Tina (Katherine Waterston) within the 3rd movie, plus some courting drama together with her heartbroken beau.

The Dumbledore circle of relatives simply were given a brand new member.

Afflicted younger wizard Credence Barebone (Ezra Miller), possessing a depressing Obscurus pressure and sought out through Grindelwald, is alleged to be a part of a prophecy involving the remaining in a pure-blood wizarding line. French-African wizard Yusuf Kama (William Nadylam) tracks Credence to Paris, considering he may well be the mysterious Corvus Lestrange. Then again, Leta Lestrange (Zoe Kravitz) comes blank together with her darkish secret, that her half-brother drowned on the best way to The united states after she swapped him with a better-behaved child aboard a soon-to-be-sinking send (that can were the Titanic?!) .

The reality, imagine or no longer, is much more dramatic. On the finish of the film, Grindelwald tells Credence, who’s determined to seek out his true id, that his actual title is Aurelius Dumbledore, the long-lost brother of wizard Albus (Jude Legislation). Now, Grindelwald’s no longer essentially the most fair man and he may well be pronouncing this simply to have an final weapon in opposition to his former shut buddy (extra on that during a minute). Then again, if Grindelwald’s at the degree, this can be a massive, game-changing connection to one of the vital Potterverse’s maximum key characters.

Miller, an enormous “Potter” fan, used to be excited to listen to about Credence’s new familial ties. “Give me a scale of 1 to freaking out, and I will let you know that I freaked out. I used to be humming,” the actor tells USA TODAY, including that he’s geeked for what occurs within the 3rd “Beasts” movie. “For me, the article that’s humorous is I have been overpreparing for those movies my whole existence, … In case you suppose I have never already installed one thing like 75,000 hours in a wormhole of concept and preparation into a film I’ve no longer but learn a script for, you then obviously do not know me in any respect.”

However there is excellent news – and perhaps a technique to flip the tide.

What we find out about Dumbledore and Grindelwald’s very shut, non-public courting is that it ended badly – the specifics most likely can be published later, however Dumbledore tells his former scholar Newt Scamander (Eddie Redmayne) he can’t transfer in opposition to Grindelwald. The rationale: As children, Dumbledore and Grindelwald took a blood pact, so magically they may be able to’t battle every different.

However wait: On the sequel’s finish, the attraction Grindelwald wears bearing their blood will get stolen through Newt’s Niffler, a creature recognized for pilfering glossy issues, and the finale reveals Newt and his allies taking it to Dumbledore to peer if he can break it. As a result of one technique to foil a depressing wizard is to unharness an similarly tough dude in Legislation’s magic guy.
