Fantastic Beasts: The Secrets of Dumbledore’s plot is set up in 6 ways during Fantastic Beasts: The Crimes of Grindelwald – here’s how. Although the movies remain centered around Newt Scamander and his friends, the overarching thrust of the narrative is clear: this is the story of the rise and fall of dark wizard Gellert Grindelwald. Fantastic Beasts: The Secrets of Dumbledore will skip forward in time by almost a decade, giving the evil wizard plenty of time to gather a loyal following. Based on the Fantastic Beasts 3 trailer, Dumbledore has acquired a whole new team to fight against Grindelwald. In addition, it seems like the movie will also be returning to Hogwarts once again.

Although Grindelwald attempts to present himself in a sympathetic light, deploying his silver tongue to effortlessly manipulate Queenie Goldstein, he’s presented as a straightforward villain. When Grindelwald and his followers arrive in Paris, they choose a house as their base and slaughter the Muggle inhabitants without any qualms; they even murder a toddler. By Fantastic Beasts: The Crimes of Grindelwald’s ending, Grindelwald has achieved everything he wanted, essentially igniting a war between his followers and the rest of the wizarding world. It’s reasonable to assume he’s going to return to Germany and continue to build his power base there, but the global reach of Grindelwald’s vision shouldn’t be underestimated. With all of the excitement and secrecy surrounding the plot, Fantastic Beasts 3 is generating excitement about tying up these loose ends despite Crimes of Grindelwald’s lukewarm reception.

 The Blood Pact Is Back And Working Against Dumbledore

Hopefully, Fantastic Beasts: The Secrets of Dumbledore will at least explain how the Blood Pact works. It’s a brand new idea in J.K. Rowling’s canon, and at the moment it’s unclear how comfortably it sits with the established story. If the Blood Pact was forged while Dumbledore and Grindelwald were still close friends, how could the two get caught up in the three-way Wizard’s Duel that killed Albus’s sister Ariana? Or was it created afterward, with a grief-stricken Albus manipulated into agreeing to a hasty Blood Pact before Grindelwald finally left Godric’s Hollow? The Fantastic Beasts 3 trailer reveals nothing else about the Blood Pact but it’s certain to play a key role in driving the story.

 Queenie’s Back And Seems To Be Fully Team Grindelwald

The greatest shock in Fantastic Beasts: The Crimes of Grindelwald was undoubtedly Queenie’s betrayal. The sweet-natured witch was one of the targets of Grindelwald’s manipulation throughout the sequel. He saw the potential of having such a powerful Legilimens at his side, and carefully shaped his message to appeal to the pain in her heart. There’s a tragic irony in the fact that the love of a No-Maj led Queenie to side with the man whose followers happily slaughter Muggles. It will be interesting to see how Queenie is portrayed in Fantastic Beasts: The Secrets of Dumbledore, but based on the Fantastic Beasts 3 trailer, she’s still on Grindelwald’s side. She may be presented as naive, with Grindelwald avoiding circumstances in which she’d realize the true nature of his cause. Or Grindelwald might instead gradually expose her to the truth, slowly desensitizing her, corrupting and twisting the powerful young witch.

There’s no way Jacob and Tina will simply stand by and leave Queenie at Grindelwald’s side. Indeed, as much as Queenie’s betrayal in being criticized by many viewers, it’s a smart move in narrative terms; it gives Jacob a powerful arc for Fantastic Beasts: The Secrets of Dumbledore, as he attempts to reach the woman he loves. The Fantastic Beasts story is heading in a direction never seen before in the Harry Potter world, with lovers and even sisters standing on different sides of the battle. It’s a fascinating new approach for Rowling. Note that the No-Maj Queenie loves, Jacob Kowalski, has a surname that’s traditionally associated with Polish Jews. The association between Grindelwald and Adolf Hitler means that Jacob’s family would be in the firing line – there’s no guarantee they all emigrated to the United States. Fantastic Beasts 3 should show how Queenie reacts to the storms of prejudice and bigotry that Grindelwald will whip up.

 Newt Scamander Has Chosen To Fight With Dumbledore

That brings us neatly to Newt Scamander himself. Newt has always considered himself something of an outsider, more comfortable with his creatures than with people. As a result, Newt has always tried to stay on the sidelines in times of conflict. During WWI, he was happy to serve on the Eastern Front in a program that worked with dragons, while his brother Theseus became a decorated war hero. But Fantastic Beasts: The Crimes of Grindelwald ultimately led Newt to choose a side. The death of Leta Lestrange has united Newt and his brother in grief and even rage. The Fantastic Beasts 3 trailer has shown that Newt chose his side wisely: he’s fighting alongside Albus Dumbledore. Note: Which In Turn Has Allowed Studios To Release All Those Movies

Theseus Proves The Ministry Is Working With Dumbledore

J.K. Rowling has never seemed particularly fond of the establishment, and Harry Potter’s Ministry of Magic has frequently been portrayed as fools at best, villains at worst. In the Harry Potter stories, the Ministry went to great lengths to persuade themselves the threat of Voldemort wasn’t real at all. Thankfully, it doesn’t look as though Rowling is repeating that plot point in the Fantastic Beasts saga. The wizarding authorities are united in their opposition to Grindelwald – although there are no doubt many traitors who’d be tempted to side with him, the full might of the various Ministries of Magic is already set against the dark wizard. Interestingly, high-ranking members of the Ministry of Magic also seem to know every one of Albus Dumbledore’s secrets; they’re aware of Dumbledore’s personal history with Grindelwald, and Theseus Scamander is even standing nearby when Newt gives Dumbledore the Blood Troth.

As evidenced by the Fantastic Beasts 3 trailer, Theseus is sure to be an important figure in Fantastic Beasts: The Secrets of Dumbledore. He’s Head of the British Auror Office, and has already been liaising with the Auror Offices of New York and Paris in his efforts to defeat Grindelwald once and for all. The death of his beloved Leta Lestrange in Fantastic Beasts: The Crimes of Grindelwald will give him a very personal reason indeed to want Grindelwald brought to justice. Now, he’s a part of the team that will go on to fight Grindelwald- proving that for once the Ministry is on Dumbledore’s side. Note: The Cast Feeling Brutalized By The Experience Of Shooting
