The Crimes of Grindelwald was set in the year 1927 and previously JK Rowling had also mentioned that the series will end in 1945. However, the presence of both Hagrid and Tom Riddle at Hogwarts does mean that Fantastic Beasts 3 has to be set up in the early 1940s. That’s when Hagrid joined the school and started his first year, with Tom Riddle was in his third year. The two characters are seen sharing screen previously in Chambers of secrets in the Harry Potter series. 

The relation between Harry Potter and Fantastic Beasts

JK Rowling's Harry Potter series was loved by the audience. A few years later she showed the audience that there are more magical worlds apart from Hogwarts with the Fantastic Beasts series. The series has shown the backstories of villains Nagini and Grindelwald and the most direct connection between both the worlds were young Albus Dumbledore and Harry Potters favourite mentor young Professor McGonagall.
