Fantastic Beasts: The Crimes of Grindelwald is set to come out this week and channels on Youtube are doing their best to stay relevant before the release. HISHE on Youtube has just come out with their take on How Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them Should Have Ended and it’s brutally honest.
The video does have a great point that the MACUSA were about to execute Tina for crimes less than that of Grindelwald, but he was no way given the same sentence. In fact, we know in the sequel that they actually kept him in captivity, and that’s how he managed to escape. It would have solved a lot of problems if they just had him killed off then and there.
There’s also a whole bit about the mass-obliviating an entire city, but I think the whole bit about Grindelwald was way more realistic. If you try too hard to scratch at the way the Wizarding World works, you’re going to have a bad time.
With that set, we should all be ready to catch Newt Scamander’s next adventure with Crimes of Grindelwald. Sure Newt’s adventures aren’t as iconic as Harry’s, but the world is always fun to come back to. Plus, we should give J.K. Rowling some time to get used to her transition from novels to scripts.
In an effort to thwart Grindelwald's plans of raising pure-blood wizards to rule over all non-magical beings, Albus Dumbledore 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 world.
Fantastic Beasts: The Crimes of Grindelwald hits theaters Nov. 16.
