In Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them, we can see Percival Graves use magical abilities (mainly telekinetic) that we would typically associate with wands, at least as far as wizards and witches are concerned.
I understand that Mr. Graves isn't a typical wizard,
he is revealed to be Gellert Grindelwald,
and that he may be really powerful, justifying his use of advanced magic, including this Star Wars-esque, force-style telekinesis, but I'm wondering whether there is more to it or if anyone knows any specific info about this ability. I know that there were a few occasions of non-wand magic in the Harry Potter movies (excluding apparition, house-elves and other obvious things), for instance the "premature" kind of magic children under 11 perform, and Dumbledore setting Tom Riddle's wardrobe on fire in the flashback scene of Half-Blood Prince.
In Fantastic Beasts, Mr. Graves uses his "telekinesis" to grab a hold of Newt's suitcase. He also uses it to move Newt's Obscurial bubble around in the interrogation room. If you didn't know better, you would think that he's using the Force.
