Fantastic Beasts 2 aka Fantastic Beasts: The Crimes of Grindelwald has released and a lot of fans are disappointed with the movie as it seems like movie has produced more questions than answers, one of the biggest confusion was about the family tree of Lestrange as a lot of questions and confusion is around this topic of the film and we are going to clear off all your doubts after a lot of research and reports.
Int he movie as we all saw and know that Obscurial Credence Barebone whose character has been played by Ezra Miller in the movie and he’s an orphan in the movie. So, int he movie he suspects that the true identity of himself is that he is Corvus Lestrange, after knowing what he went straight to Paris in order to find his mother.
But, in the middle of that, he came across his sister Leta Lestrange who role has been portrayed by Zoe Kravitz who is hiding some kind of a dark secret about the things which happened to Corvus when he was a baby child.
Now, if we talk about the movie then there are two families who have played a very crucial role and those two families are the Lestrange & Kama, families. As many of you will know that Kama family includes Senegalese wizards and witches in it. Also, Tina meets a man whose name was Yusuf Kama (William Nadylam) in Paris.
It was Tina who told Yusuf about the secretive prophecies of Tycho Dodonus. Now, if we explain the whole tree then Mustafa Kama and Laurena Kama were the parents of Yusuf Kama, his mother was taken away and bewitched by Corvus Lestrange IV. After which, Laurena and Lestrange IV gave birth to Leta, which makes Yusuf the half-brother of Leta.
Yusuf isn’t the only half-brother of Leta as the one who drowned at a sea was none other than another half-brother of Leta and that was Crovus Lestrange V. Also, the mother of Leta, Laurena died in the process of giving birth to Leta and because of which Corvus IV married with a new woman named, Eglantine. Both of them had a child whose name was Corvus V. If you’re good at reading trees then this one is for you as the tree for understanding Lestrange family is down below.
This representation of the Lestrange family with visuals is a work done and sold by Minalima in which we can clearly see that the whole connections of the family have been explained and you can also see the portrait of Corvus V on the top right of the portrait.
Now, the big question is that how all these events are going to relate with the happenings of Fantastic beasts: The Crimes of Grindelwald? And there is a lot of connection in-between these as we all know that when Lestrange IV stole the wife of Mustafa Kama, there was a lot of rage and anger in the heart of Mustafa which is an obvious thing.
So, when he was on his deathbed it was Yusuf whom he pushed and motivated in order to kill the person whom Lestrange IV loved the most.
So, after that vow in mind and he went straight to the son of Covus IV who he believes is Credence Barebone and in order to complete his vow he is tracking down Credence in order to kill him. The only things we understand that was the two half-brothers of Leta are Yusuf and Crovus V, also we know that Corvus V was dead as a baby, and Credence and Leta aren’t related to each other at all.
Also, Leta Lestrange is somehow related to Bellatrix as there aren’t any bloodlines between them. Not many know this but Bellatrix was the cousin of Sirius Black and born as Bellatrix Black. So, Rodolphus and Leta would be very far-far cousins. There are a lot of things which fans should watch and in order to see that you have to watch the movie.
