Scamander went to the United States of America in 1926 in an attempt to return Frank to the arid climate of Arizona, the natural habitat of Thunderbirds. Newt described him as a majestic, powerful, and regal creature, but a wee-bit sensitive to strangers.
After the battle against Credence Barebone and Gellert Grindelwald, Newt gave Frank a vial of Swooping Evil venom, which the latter diluted through a storm he conjured to wipe New York of the memories of the devastation.
Frank managed to return to Arizona after being released.
Behind the scenes
- At the end of the film inspired by Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them, Frank is seen leaving New York flying towards the sun. As the sun was coming up at the time, this means Frank was flying eastwards, which is the wrong way to get to Arizona.
