In the last chapter of the saga “Fantastic Beasts and the Crimes of Grindelwald”, we finally see African magic appear. The Kama in particular will have a dispute to be collected with the Lestrange.

In the new film we will finally see the appearance of the first African magicians, Yusuf Kama will be a young Franco-Senegalese magician who arrived in Paris to take revenge on Corvus Lestrange. The latter committed atrocities against his family and for this reason the young African magician swore to kill his son.

In the course of the film we will be catapulted into the tragedy that the Kama suffered at the hands of the Lestrange, also learning about the history of the mysterious Leta Lestrange.

If you haven’t gone to the cinema, skip to the next paragraph. During the course of the film we will become aware of the birth of the latter. Corvus Lestrange fell in love with Laurena Kama, Yusuf’s mother, and for this reason he decided to bewitch her through the imperius curse. Laurena became pregnant with Leta and died shortly after giving birth.

Precisely because of this real story of “magical colonialism” hatred arises between the two families that will lead the young magician to make the trip to Paris. His arrival will then lead us to discover new traits of the magical world such as the Uagadou school.

The institute would be located in Uganda, in the Mountains of the Moon and, unlike Hogwarts, there would be no owls as messengers but “messengers of dreams”. The school is counted as one of the oldest in the whole, so much so that, unlike my European colleagues, I am aware of a magic so primordial that I don’t need wands.

Another characteristic feature of the school is undoubtedly the strong propensity for self-transfiguration, astrology and alchemy. The choice to introduce the first references to the “world beyond Hogwarts” in the latest films can certainly prove interesting, we are also looking forward to the Arab and Persian schools.
