Plot holes in Fantastic Beasts: The Crimes of Grindelwald

The plot of the new “Fantastic Beasts” movie takes place 70 years before the events described in the books about Harry Potter happened. According to the scenario of the second movie (creators plan to make five films), Gellert Grindelwald breaks from imprisonment and starts gathering followers.

Major Plot hole: The Minister of Magic and his assistants apparate to Hogwarts, while Joanne Rowling repeatedly wrote that it’s impossible in the school of magic. Only Albus Dumbledore, the schoolmaster, has such possibility, and this constraint was never removed. In the books about Harry Potter, this fact is explained by necessity to protect students against villains.

This clear contradiction polarized the fans. Some think it’s possible that this rule might not exist during the period when the actions of “Fantastic Beasts: The Crimes of Grindelwald” took place. Others quote Hermione Granger’s words: “You cannot apparate to the territory of Hogwarts. How many times should I repeat that?” and remember what Joanne Rowling said. “The castle and its territory have always been protected by anti-apparition spell” – she claimed.
