Why Did Crimes of Grindelwald Forget Minerva McGonagall Wasn’t Even Born Until 1936?

Fantastic Beasts: The Crimes of Grindelwald is set in 1927. 1927!

Not every change made for Let's Go is perfect or even necessarily a step in the right direction, but for a series that has changed as little over time as Pokémon, I'm happy to see it shake things up at all. On top of that, a remake of a game that was already purposefully drawing inspiration from a kid-friendly show is a great place to try some new things in a fun, low-difficulty package.
