The Crimes of Grindelwald” has many flaws.

“Fantastic Beasts: The Crimes of Grindelwald” has many flaws. Yet, continually going against the “Harry Potter” group is among its most terrible stumbles.

Here are eight glaring irregularities that are sure to confuse discerning aficionados of the establishment.

Many fans have asked why Newt can’t just use the popular “Accio” recovery spell to get his way away from the animals.

Newt in Fantastic Beasts

Rowling took to her site to respond to the substantial inquiry: “‘Accio’ is just munching on lifeless stuff,” she wrote.

“Individuals or animals can be implicitly moved by ‘Accio-ing’ objects they wear or hold. This conveys a wide range of dangers due to the likelihood of injury to the individual or monster bound to an item traveling at nearly the speed of light.

This clarification seems correct – but maybe Rowling failed to remember her own standard. Newt can explicitly be heard saying “Accio Niffler” in “The Misdeeds of Grindelwald” to bring the animal into his arms.

“The Wrongdoings of Grindelwald” brought back Minvera McGonagall for two separate scenes, but that doesn’t verify that she’s there.

She’s already shown up in Dumbledore’s study room. Dumbledore, who was genuinely busy showing off stunt doubles, advised the young wizards to leave the room and follow Professor McGonagall. She also appears in a flashback to when Newt and Leta Lestrange were stunt doubles at Hogwarts.

Newt started as a first year at Hogwarts in 1908. The film is set in 1927. McGonagall was not born until 1935.

McGonagall’s introduction to the world year can be determined from her Pottermore account (composed by Rowling herself) and McGonagall’s own words in “Harry Potter and the Order of the Phoenix”. She lets Dolores Umbridge know that in 1995 she has been teaching at Hogwarts for quite a long time.

Assuming she started teaching at Hogwarts in 1956 after working in the Ministry for a long time after graduation. This places his graduation in 1954, his freshman year in 1947, and his introduction to the world in 1935.

Also, as we clarify here, Minerva McGonagall has her muggle father’s last name. This makes it unimaginable that the McGonagall in “The Misdeeds of Grindelwald” is destined to be one of his relatives.

Albus Dumbledore’s involvement in the Mirror of Rised in Fantastic Beasts is confusing and problematic

The Mirror of Rised is a strong article featured in “Harry Potter and the Sorcerer’s Stone”. As Dumbledore reveals to Harry, it shows “the most unfathomable and frenzied longing of our souls.”

“Violations of Grindelwald” shows Dumbledore as a young man staring into the mirror. He sees Gellert Grindelwald (his ex-boyfriend, conceivable ex-sweetheart, and currently enemy) staring at him. He also sees himself and Grindelwald as children doing some kind of “blood settlement”.

The Mirror of Erised is not intended to function as a Pensieve, allowing you to review your memories. Dumbledore seeing a flashback in the mirror is a takeoff of his sole reason – and feels like a modest method to push the ‘blood settlement’ subplot forward.

Additionally, Rowling has publicly stated that the Mirror shows Dumbledore joined his kin, not Grindelwald.

“He saw his family alive, whole and joyful – [sister] Ariana, [father] Percival and [mother] Kendra replied to him, and [brother] Aberforth made do with him,” Rowling composed in 2007 for Dumbledore’s Mirror of Reflection Rised.

Discussing ‘blood settlement’ – did Dumbledore and Grindelwald do it before or after their duel as teenagers?

A central tension in “Misdeeds of Grindelwald” is that the wizarding region needs Dumbledore to stand up and fight Grindelwald, before he becomes excessively strong. Dumbledore says he can’t, and many people accept him on the grounds that he actually harbors affections for the dark wizard.

The end of the film reveals that Dumbledore and Grindelwald had really made a restriction of some sort of “blood deal”. Maybe like the unbreakable vow – don’t fight each other.

However, this does not correspond exactly

As the diary’s wizarding writer Rita Skeeter noted, Grindelwald met and got to know Dumbledore in mid-1899, shortly after Dumbledore had left Hogwarts. As Dumbledore tells Harry in “Ghastly Hallows”, he was “gotten” and “ignited” by Grindelwald’s extremist thoughts and thoughts for world control.

Towards the end of the middle of the year, Dumbledore was stood up to by his brother, Aberforth. Aberforth was disturbed by the couple’s arrangements to leave town and upset a Muggle enemy. The confrontation immediately turned brutal when Grindelwald cast the illegal Cruciatus Curse on Aberforth.

Dumbledore protects his brother, and the three are occupied with a gruesome three-way duel, resulting in the disappearance of Dumbledore’s sister, Ariana.
