Many questions remain, of course, such as where Tina Goldstein fits into Newt’s life 2 years after they met in New York, and how Queenie and Jacob will fit into the story, too. Not only that, but how does the action get to Paris, what is Credence up to, and how did he recover from seemingly being killed by MACUSA? It will all unfold in due course, but for now this little tidbit does give us something to focus on. Kravitz will play a larger role in the second movie, obviously, but what of her connection to Newt? How and what is it that bonds them, and will Newt get over her and realize that Tina holds his heart?
Though initially fans were worried that Rowling would not be able to spin the action out over five Fantastic Beasts movies, it seems as though Grindelwald’s reign of terror will give rise to many intricate sub-plots. Hopefully, those story threads will all weave together to create one long narrative that plays out well over the five movie duration.
