In the movie Fantastic Beasts: The Secrets of Dumbledore, Professor Albus Dumbledore knows the upsetting fact that one of the powerful, dark wizards, Gellert Grindelwald, is getting his resources together to seize control of the wizarding world. Dumbledore lacks the power to defeat him alone, so he entrusts magi zoologist Newt Scamander to lead a fearless team of wizards and witches. On their quest to stop the powerful dark wizard army, they encounter an assortment of old and new beasts as they fight with Grindelwald’s growing empire of followers.

If you are a fan of the Harry Potter series, you are almost guaranteed to become a fan of this series. It is only a 3-part series as of now, so it would be easy to catch up to this movie. Speaking from experience, you don’t have to start from the beginning to understand this particular movie. It is basically the same thing, just taken back in time. The movie has more action and fight scenes than any other Harry Potter movie in the past. Overall, this was a very entertaining movie to watch, and it is family-friendly, so feel free to bring the fam!
