Delve back into J.K. Rowling's Wizarding World for the continued adventures of Newt Scamander.
At the end of Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them, dark wizard Gellert Grindelwald was captured by MACUSA Magical Congress of the United States of America). But, making good on his threat of revenge, 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, his once dearest friend, Albus Dumbledore, enlists the help of former student and magizoologist, Newt Scamander. Unaware of the dangers that lie ahead, Scamander agrees to help. Lines are drawn as love and loyalty are pushed to their limits, even amongst the truest friends and family, in an increasingly divided wizarding world.
