Fantastic Beasts: The Crimes of Grindelwald

Trivia: The Philosopher's Stone from the first Harry Potter film is visible inside Nicholas Flamel's locker.

Trivia: The film was mainly filmed at the Leavesden studios outside London, where all the other Harry Potter films have been filmed.

Trivia: Shots of 'Hogwarts' were filmed at Lacock Abbey in Wiltshire, which dates from 1229.

Trivia: With this film, Grindelwald has now been played by four actors - Colin Farrell, Jamie Campbell Bower, Michael Byrne and Johnny Depp.

Trivia: Johnny Depp accepted the role of Grindelwald without reading the script, because he is a big fan of the franchise.

Continuity mistake: After Dumbledore gives Newt the card for the safe house in Paris, they teleport to a bridge where they continue talking. Dumbledore then tells Newt why he likes him so much, and in the side shots, Newt is shown holding the card up. When it cuts to angles from behind Dumbledore's shoulders, his arm and hand are much lower with the card and his head turned in a different position. (00:20:35)
