The Crimes of Grindelwald {#4}: "Magic blooms only in rare souls. Still we must skulk in the shadows. But the old ways serve us no longer."


At the end of the first film, the powerful Dark wizard Gellert Grindelwald (Depp) was captured by MACUSA
(Magical Congress of the United States of America), with the help of Newt Scamander (Redmayne).
But, making good on his threat, Grindelwald escaped custody and has set about gathering followers, most
unsuspecting of his true agenda: to raise pure-blood wizards up to rule over all non-magical beings.
In an effort to thwart Grindelwald’s plans, Albus Dumbledore (Law) enlists his former student Newt Scamander,
who agrees to help, unaware of the dangers that lie ahead. Lines are drawn as love and loyalty are tested, even
among the truest friends and family, in an increasingly divided wizarding world.
