New this month Question: At the beginning, President Picquery mentioned that they removed Grindelwald's tongue, but the tongue of Abernathy, who was disguised as Grindelwad, looks like a snake's. It doesn't look like it was cut off. Why is that?

Bunch Son

New today Answer: Grindelwald gave Abernathy the forked tongue after the escape sequence, as a reward for his loyal service and to replace the one macusa had cut out.

New this month Question: Why does Nagini stand with Newt, Tina, Theseus, Jacob and aurors at the bridge of Hogwarts? I don't understand why she joins them without Credence who was her only friend at that time?

Bunch Son

New this month Answer: She would stand with them to oppose Grindelwald and possibly hopes that Creedence can somehow be saved.

New this month Question: At the beginning, why did Grindelwald let Spielman live by dropping a wand off the carriage and letting Spielman grasp that wand?

Bunch Son

New this month Answer: There's no explanation about why he did this. It probably just amused him to watch Spielman frantically trying to save himself.

New this month Question: Newt and Tina visit the records room located at the French Ministry of Magic. As soon as they meet with Leta who came to see her family tree, the worker at the records room suddenly walks over to them with Matagots and attempts to attack them, including Leta. Why?

Bunch Son

New this month Answer: Newt and Tina were in the archive room illegally. When Leta, who is a Ministry employee, happened to discover them there, she chose to help them escape, which was breaking the law.

New this month Question: Why did Grindelwald let his acolytes steal the family tree of Leta Lestrange and place it at Pere Lachaise? What's the point? If he wanted Credence or Leta to read it, he could have simply given it to them, right?

Bunch Son

New this month Answer: Grindelwald was using it to lure Credence to the Pere Lachaise where the rally was being held.

Other mistake: McGonagall appears as a young professor at Hogwarts, even though the movie is set in 1927 and she wasn't born, according to the official Harry Potter canon, until 1935.
