  1. Hi Mugglecast, Mina Lima’s concept art for the circus WAS posted on the New York streets in the film and was also already online five months ago. In February, I uploaded a video where I pointed out an image of Mina Lima’s circus poster with Graves/Grindelwald walking past it on his way to Credence after he killed Mary Lou. My video points out the possibility of the circus appearing in the next film, and it’s where I think Fantastic Beasts 2 will start and why it will start in New York. But I think the connection is going to be because of Credence as he is also a “freak” (as the Senator called him) and will feel an affinity with this circus of “freaks.” The video is called “Might Credence Barebone Run Away to Join the Circus in Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them 2?” https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=765xrw5gjLc

  2. As far as how Grindelwald escapes, how about the Portkey he still shares with Credence via the Deathly Hallows necklace, which Credence never returned? I also have a video on that from 5 months ago – Could Credence’s Deathly Hallows Pendant Help Release Grindelwald from Prison in Fantastic Beasts 2?
