Fantastic Beasts by Joanne Rowling series

The plot of the first film revolves around Newton Scamander, or commonly known as Newt, a Magizoologist who arrives in New York in December of 1926, to stay for a brief time following a journey around the world to research creatures for his book Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them. Newt owns a magically-expanded suitcase containing many creatures which No-Maj Jacob Kowalski inadvertently opens. When some of the creatures escape, the situation threatens the secrecy of the Wizarding world and the relationship between the magical and non magical societies in America, which is already in danger due to the New Salem Philanthropic Society. Newt battles to find the creatures with the help of Jacob and Porpentina "Tina" Goldstein before it's too late, with Percival Graves on his tail. The film take place over the course of two days.
The second film is set in Paris in the summer of 1927. It will begin to centre around Gellert Grindelwald who made a brief appearance in the first film and was considered the darkest Wizard of his time. It will also feature the return of Albus Dumbledore. Leta Lestrange who is described as complicated, damaged and confused will also be featured.

The story of the movies will span 19 years, setting the ending on 1945. This places the series within the timeframe of the Global wizarding war.
