The Sinplex is again magical.

"Fantastic Animals: The Crime of Gindelwald" hit the theaters this weekend, bringing another episode from J. Rolling "The Wizarding World" to the screens, now with 100% more Dumbledore (played by Joe Lowe as a younger version of Hogwarts director).

And while the new film may not be quite as fantastic as the first, it is a perfect excuse to revisit the original films "Harry Potter". Here are five "magicians" movies to watch before you see "Grindelwald Crimes" or if you just feel like hanging out with Harry, Ron and Hermione again.

If you do not remember who Grindelwald is: Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows Parts 1 and 2

The villain of the Grindelwald crime is, you guessed, a guy named Grindelwald. If you've seen the first movie "Fantastic Animals," you've been introduced to the character and its ways, but if you want its full background and how it is defeated (the wonderful animals are prequel, after all), watch or re-watch the last two "Potter" movies. In these films we learn about the relationship between Dumbledore and Grindelwald as teenagers.

Rent or buy them Amazon, Google Play, iTunes, Vudu or YouTube.

If you do not know how it connects to Harry Potter at all: Fantastic animals and where to find them & # 39;

Even the most devoted Potter fan will find it hard to enter the new film without expecting "wonderful animals and where to find them." The film of 2016 introduced us to Skander's navigation (Eddie Redmine), his allies and the Wizarding Age of the 1920s, when Grindelwald's threat looms large.

If you want to feel old: Harry Potter and the Sorcerer's Stone

When the first movie "Potter" hit the theaters, George Bush was president, there were no Smartphones and Radmain was only 19. It was 17 years since Daniel Radcliffe, Emma Watson and Rupert Grint adapted the Hogwarts Ice Creams For the first time, and revisiting "The Stone of the Sorcerer" will make the two nostalgia for "Potter" early years, and admitted that CGI has improved so much since this film used it to create a terrible-looking centaur.

If you want the best: "Harry Potter and the Order of the Phoenix"

No harm to the Hasidim of "Azkaban Prisoner", but the best movie "Potter" of all is based on the worst book: "Order of the Phoenix". None of Rowling's books can be called "bad," but compared to the other six novels, "Phoenix" is a bit more exaggerated and tiring. But with a vigorous adaptation of all the flaws in the books, director David Yates (who directed the films "Potter" and "Fantastic Animals") turned the black sheep of the series "Potter" into a strong and powerful film.
