What’s in Newt’s basement?

Fantastic Beasts: The Crimes of Grindelwald - Newt and his New MenagerieIt’s not that long to go before we find out what’s next for Newt in Fantastic Beasts: The Crimes of Grindelwald.

This time we’ve been sent over a great featurette about the creatures that Newt is “caring” in his basement.  Not only that, we find out what J. K. Rowling also thinks of the creatures as well as some of our friends from the first film.  That and one of the beloved characters has a special news for all fans that we discover from the author herself…

At the end of the first film, the powerful Dark wizard Gellert Grindelwald was captured by MACUSA (Magical Congress of the United States of America), with the help of Newt Scamander. 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 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.
