Fantastic Beasts: The Crimes of Grindelwald has very little to do with actual crimes committed by Grindelwald. It is, instead, much more focused on the mystery of who Credence Barebone is. And when it’s revealed...holy shit.

Months ago, Fantastic Beasts: The Crimes of Grindelwald director David Yates courted controversy among some Harry Potter fans by saying that the movie — despite featuring a young Dumbledore grappling with confronting his now-villainous love interest — would not address author J.K. Rowling’s post-book reveal that Dumbledore is gay. Now he’s walking that back, ever so slightly.
When it was announced that Jude Law would be playing young Albus Dumbledore in the Fantastic Beasts sequel (now called Fantastic Beasts: The Crimes of Johnny Depp's Hair), the response was largely: "That sounds fine." It wasn't rage-inducing, but it wasn't cause for an ecstatic fan freakout either. It was, well, serviceable. But executive producer David Heyman sees Law's casting as something much, much more.
