At the end of the first film, the powerful Dark wizard Gellert Grindelwald [Johnny Depp] was captured by MACUSA [Magical Congress of the United States of America], with the help of Newt Scamander [Eddie Redmayne].

But he’ll need to master these powers quickly in order to fight the deadly forces of evil controlled by Dr. Thaddeus Sivana [Strong]. >br/>
