"Fantastic beasts: the Grindelwald crime" is embarking on a new link between Voldemort and Grindelwald, which will reflect fans of fans Harry Potter in the coming months or until the release of the film on 16 November.

Cineplex is magical again.

"Fantastic beasts: the Gindelwald crimes" this weekend hit the cinemas, so J.K. Rowling's "Wizarding World" on the screens, now with 100% more Dumbledore (played by Jude Law as a younger version of Hogwarts director).

And although the new film will not be as beautiful as the first one, it's a perfect excuse to avoid the original Harry Potter movies. Here are five magic films that you can see before seeing "Crimes of Grindelwald", or if you just feel like spending time with Harry, Ron and Hermione.

If you do not remember who Grindelwald is: 1st and 2nd parts of Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows

The kidnapped "Grindelwald Crimes" is that you guessed it, a boy named Grindelwald (Johnny Depp). If you saw the first movie "Fantastic Beasts," you were acquainted with the character and his turning ways, but if you want his entire background and how he is beaten (films "Fantastic beasts" are ancestors, after all), watching or watching the last two films "Potter". In these films, we learn about the relationship between Dumbledore and Grindelwald as a teenager.

Rent or buy them Amazon, Google Play, iTunes, Wood or YouTube.

If you do not know how it all interacts with Harry Potter: "Fantastic beasts and where do you find them"

Even the most enthusiastic fan "Potter" could have trouble getting into a new movie without looking at the original "Fantastic Beasts and where to find them." The film of 2016 was presented to us by Newt Scamander (Eddie Redmayne), his allies, and the Wizarding World of the 19th Century, where the Grindelwald threat is becoming high.

If you want to feel old: "Harry Potter and the Witch's Stone"

When the first Potter movie was filmed by theaters, George W. Bush was President, there were no smartphones, and Redmayne was only 19 years old. For the past 17 years, Daniel Radcliffe, Emma Watson and Rupert Grint have been dressed for the first time in Hogwarts suits, and at the "Sorcerer's Stone" review, both of you will be nostalgic for the early "Potter" years and are grateful that the CGI has so greatly improved because he used this film to create a terrible looking centaur.

Rent or buy Amazon, Google Play, iTunes, Wood or YouTube.

If you want the best of the best: "Harry Potter and the Red Phoenix"

Without errors of the devotee of "Azkaban prisoner", the best film "Potter" is based on the worst book: "Red Phoenix". None of Rowling's books really can be called "bad"; compared to other six novels, "Phoenix" is a bit too complicated and complex. But with a tiny adaptation that inspires all book shortcomings, director David Yates (who directed later Potter movies and both "Fantastic Beasts") has turned the Black Pot of the Potter series into a shockingly powerful film.
