‘Fantastic Beasts 2’: What Did You Think?

Director David Yates and screenwriter J.K. Rowling explore the two wizards' mysterious and powerful connection in Warner Bros.' Fantastic Beasts: The Crimes of Grindelwald (in theaters Friday).

Rowling has improved a lot from the first movie of Fantastic Beasts film by highlighting out her characters in a way that's engaging and thought-provoking, though not everybody receives as much attention. The marquee additions, meanwhile, including a toothy role for Johnny Depp (after what amounted to a fleeting cameo) and the introduction of Jude Law as a younger Albus Dumbledore, which, along with some other familiar names, moves this brand expansion closer to the realm of "Star Wars" prequels. But Dumbledore will need help from the wizard who had thwarted Grindelwald once before, his former student Newt Scamander. It's certainly more novelistic in structure than a feature film should be, and while it doesn't necessarily have one strong thematic throughline from beginning to end-or even really a beginning, middle, and end-I was still delighted to spend time with these characters knowing full well I was watching an unfinished chapter in a five-film saga. You either take this at face value or assume that Grindelwald was lying, but either way this appears to be the way forward for the Fantastic Beasts franchise.
