MY Thoughts On The Film
This film in its entirety showed the wizarding world in a new way. fantastic beasts and the crimes of Grindelwald is a must see that builds on character development and should make for a great sequel with Credence Barebone played by Ezra Miller taking Front stage Claiming his birthright. This film builds on an already expanding wizarding world. This film is consistent in leaving little breadcrumbs for future plots to be established upon.
The narrative of the film does leave much to be desired as the premise of the film centers around Credence finding his biological family. Perhaps if the film would have focused more on a backstory to purebloods and their dissatisfaction with the current state of things this would have offset the constant oversharing of Credence story.
Young Newt Scamander: I’m scared, Professor Dumbledore.
Albus Dumbledore: Everyone is scared of something.
