14 Connections Between ‘Fantastic Beasts 2’ And ‘Harry Potter’

 

The Wizarding World has grown by leaps and bounds since J.K. Rowling first dropped Harry Potter and the Sorcerer’s Stone on the world, and Fantastic Beasts: The Crimes of Grindelwald adds even more to the Potterverse. The Fantastic Beasts films, starting with the first in the franchise, Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them, take place long before Harry Potter arrives on the scene, but include numerous references to future Potter plot points.

The Harry Potter connections in Fantastic Beasts 2 are not just Easter eggs; they actually recontextualize many of the scenes in Sorcerer’s Stone as well as other films in the Harry Potterseries. Aside from referencing the previous films, Fantastic Beasts 2 expands the overall mythos of the series. A lot of the following references are for fans who’ve kept up with the series since its inception, but that doesn’t mean first-years won’t have fun with this reference guide to the connections between The Crimes of Grindelwald and the rest of the Harry Potter series.
