The Crimes of Grindelwald. Are you a Harry Potter fan? What am I saying… of course you are!
Ok, I actually went into this with zero spoilers and very few expectations so that I'd enjoy whatever it turned out to be. I mean, I like scripts. Harry Potter is my life. So I really tried not to compare this to the HP books or look at it as an intense fan, but it's pretty underwhelming no matter how you approach it The kid's pretty sulky about being compared to his father and has a chip on his shoulder the size of Grawp.
I'll explain the plot below in the spoiler bracket, but it's basically the wizarding version of "It's a Wonderful Life.
I was mostly just looking forward to just seeing some familiar faces and places again, but was kind of let down in that regard.
The plot seemed to be a string of events that producers thought were the highlights of the series, rather than the sort of touching everyday scenes that makes Harry Potter what it is. I wanted to see the kids at Hogwarts playing quidditch, going to class, eating, or just interacting.
Instead this play is a breakneck pace of: So there really wasn't a lot at Hogwarts or much in the way of an actual fun "Harry Potter" type story. There were a million directions this story could've gone in and it did feel like they tried to do too much with the little time they had. The 2 friends then use polyjuice potion to break into the office of the Minister of Magic who is Hermione in order to steal a time turner so they can go back and save Cedric Diggory.
I would hope that the ministry would have better security by now but whatever. So they go back in time to the first Triwizard task and pose as Durmstrang students while they hear Ludo Bagman say cringeworthy things like "Cedric Delicious Diggory" and "Harry Plucky Potter.
She goes with Ron instead, so he was never jealous -- they just stayed friends, he married Padma, and Rose was never born. So then they go back in time to sabotage the second task, but only Scorpius returns to the present because Albus was never born.
Umbridge is now headmistress and it's currently Voldemort Day to celebrate the day they killed Harry Potter and stopped the Dumbledore's Army terrorists at the Battle of Hogwarts.
Draco is now the head of Magical Law Enforcement and "Potter" is a curse word which was the only part of this mess I appreciated. Cedric Diggory is a death eater who killed Neville Longbottom, so Scorpius decides the best way to fix the present is to go back in time to save Neville to make sure he kills Nagini So Scorpius goes to find Professor Snape who is still a jerk who's unwilling to help until Lily's name is evoked.
Umbridge shows up and starts spewing dark magic and floating in front of Snape, who also gets the Dementor's Kiss after he clarifies that he believed in Lily's cause and that there was "glory in being taken down by the Dark Lord himself".SPECIAL NOTE: For U.S.
