Plot summary

What is Fantastic Beasts: The Crimes of Grindelwald movie plot?

Here is a short review of "Fantastic Beasts: The Crimes of Grindelwald" movie plot summary.

In 1927, the Magical Congress of the United States of America (MACUSA) transfers the dark wizard Gellert Grindelwald (Johnny Depp) to Europe to stand trial, but Grindelwald escapes. Three months later in London, Newt Scamander (Eddie Redmayne) visits the Ministry of Magic to appeal his international travel ban, and runs into Leta Lestrange (Zoë Kravitz), his Hogwarts classmate and the fiancée of his Auror brother Theseus. The Ministry agrees to grant Newt's request if he helps Theseus locate Credence Barebone (Ezra Miller) in Paris, but Newt declines after learning he must work with ruthless bounty hunter Gunnar Grimmson (Ingvar Sigurdsson). Albus Dumbledore (Jude Law) asks Newt to find Credence, believing Credence is Leta's long-lost half-brother, Corvus Lestrange V.
Newt is visited by his American friends Queenie Goldstein (Alison Sudol) and Jacob Kowalski (Dan Fogler), a Muggle, who has regained his memories erased the previous year. Newt is disappointed to learn Queenie's sister Tina Goldstein (Katherine Waterston) is seeing someone after mistakenly believing Newt and Leta were engaged. He deduces from Jacob's strange behaviour that Queenie enchanted him into eloping to circumvent MACUSA's ban on marriage between wizards and non-magical people. After Newt lifts the enchantment, Jacob refuses to marry Queenie, fearing the consequences she would face. Queenie leaves to find Tina, who is looking for Credence in Paris, followed by Newt and Jacob.
In Paris, Credence escapes the Circus Arcanus with captive performer Nagini (Claudia Kim). Searching for Credence's birth mother, they locate half-elf servant Irma Dugard (Danielle Hugues), who brought him to America for adoption. Grimmson, revealed to be a follower of Grindelwald, kills Irma. Tina meets Yusuf Kama, who is also hunting Credence. Newt and Jacob follow Yusuf to Tina, only to find her being held hostage. Yusuf imprisons them as well, explaining he made an Unbreakable Vow to kill his half-brother, whom he believes to be Credence. Unable to find Tina, a distraught Queenie is brought to Grindelwald; knowing Queenie's abilities, he allows her to leave while manipulating her into joining him through her desire to marry Jacob.
