From Hogwarts to a baffling Parisian bazaar to America, here’s a glance at Harry Potter’s reality before The Boy Who Lived ever even … lived.
Harry Potter fans may have thought their adventures to his mystical world finished with the arrival of the eighth film, Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows: Part 2, in 2011. At that point, the enchantment returned. Accio, popcorn!
In 2016, creator J.K. Rowling commenced a radical new arrangement, set before Harry’s introduction to the world, highlighting magizoologist Newt Scamander (Eddie Redmayne) and an entire supernatural Noah’s Ark of unusual animals. The principal Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them motion picture took Newt to America and acquainted fans with the American enchanted world.
The second film, opening this month, is Fantastic Beasts 2: The Crimes of Grindelwald. Here, the enchantment comes back to Europe, with scenes set at Harry’s institute of matriculation, Hogwarts School of Witchcraft and Wizardry, and including a youthful Albus Dumbledore (Jude Law). Dumbledore later turns into Harry’s dean, yet here he’s a youthful educator with a past association with dull wizard Gellert Grindelwald (Johnny Depp).
From Hogwarts classrooms to a puzzling Parisian bazaar, here’s a gander at the Fantastic Beasts universe.
