The official synopsis for Fantastic Beasts: The Secrets of Dumbledore reads: “Professor Albus Dumbledore (Jude Law) knows the powerful Dark wizard Gellert Grindelwald (Mads Mikkelsen) is moving to seize control of the wizarding world.
“Unable to stop him alone, he entrusts Magizoologist Newt Scamander (Eddie Redmayne) to lead an intrepid team of wizards, witches and one brave Muggle baker on a dangerous mission, where they encounter old and new beasts and clash with Grindelwald’s growing legion of followers.
“But with the stakes so high, how long can Dumbledore remain on the sidelines?”
A wonderful new DVD box set was recently released celebrating 20 years of the Harry Potter movies.
The complete 10-film Wizarding World box set is available on DVD on Amazon.
