Hollywood these days is all about cinematic universes we have MCU, DC universe, Monsterverse, StarWars universe etc. and the thing about such movies is that audience already has a set of expectations. Fantastic Beasts: The Crimes of Grindelwald belongs to Wizarding World and is the second instalment in the Fantastic Beasts film series, and the tenth overall considering the Harry Potter film series. As an audience my expectations with the Wizarding World movies are adventurous storyline, unique Wizarding world elements (flying brooms, mysterious creatures etc.) and Magic, lots of CGI, wand waving, unique chanting driven Magic. Do we get all that with “Fantastic Beasts: The Crimes of Grindelwald”? my answer is Yes but maybe not in a balanced format.
