Fantastic Beasts 3 has had another release date change, but this time the release schedule is moving forward and we also have an official title. The third film is called Fantastic Beasts: Dumbledore’s Secrets and will hit theaters in April 2022 instead of July 2022. The film was moved to that summer date after Johnny Depp came out under the single name Grindelwald, but now they seem confident enough to move it forward.
Depp was quickly replaced by Mads Mikkelsen as filming began and luckily there have been no other major TV series since then, so Newt Scamander and his magical friends will be back next year. It will be four years since The Crimes of Grindelwald, so the delay may have allowed fans to forget the disappointing sequel.
We’re still not 100% sure we’ll have all five Fantastic Beasts movies as originally planned, but Fantastic Beasts 3 is definitely on the rise and its performance will be far from seeing if they actually materialize. . I’m getting another movie or not. Before we go too far, here’s everything you need to know about Fantastic Beasts 3 and what we know about future movies planned for later.
Who is going to return?
As previously mentioned, Johnny Depp will not be reprising his role as Grindelwald after being asked to leave Warner Bros. Depp shot a scene as Grindelwald for the third movie, but we don’t know if he’ll end up in the movie or less.
The role of Grindelwald will now be played by Doctor Strange and star Hannibal Mads Mikkelsen. It is not yet clear how the birthday will be handled in the film, but given the world of Harry Potter, it could easily be turned into a potion, accident, or masked by magic.
Mikkelsen revealed that she didn’t tell Depp about the role and hired him because her daughter was a fan of the Harry Potter series. However, don’t expect an impression of Depp from Mikkelsen.
As for the rest of the characters, not all of them survived the crimes of Grindelwald, so a toast to Leta Lestrange (Zoe Kravitz), who was tragically killed by Grindelwald after helping Newt and others escape. That doesn’t completely rule out seeing Leta again in the series, but (probably) it will have to be in flashback form.
Eddie Redmayne will return as Newt Scamander and join Katherine Waterston (Tina Goldstein), Jude Law (Albus Dumbledore), Dan Fogler (Jacob Kowalski), and Alison Sudol (Queenie Goldstein). Ezra Miller will also return as Credence Barebone (or Aurelius Dumbledore?), With Callum Turner (Theseus Scamander), William Nadylam (Yusuf Kama), Poppy CorbyTuech (Vinda Rosier), Jessica Williams (Professor Hicks)) and Victoria Yeates (Bunty).
The official release date!
Short story, Fantastic Beasts 3 hits theaters on April 15, 2022, three months before its previous release date of July 15, 2022.
Initially, the film was supposed to repeat the two-year gap between the release of the series. the first two movies. and will be released on November 20, 2020. However, that date was never set, and when production was postponed by Warner Bros., we knew that 2020 would not happen.
The film was therefore set for November 12, 2021. However, as soon as filming began in March 2020, the pandemic caused the start of production to be delayed to September. . And then there was the debut of Depp, which resulted in the film being pushed back to July 2022.
After another production delay in early February 2021, filming ended at the end of the month according to the house. composer James Newton Howard: “I know David Yates is done shooting, and I’m having trouble getting started.”
Now, with Warner Bros. going through April 2022, hopefully, this is the new decision. especially since it doesn’t look like they’ll announce a release date anytime soon if they’re not sure it’s possible.
