Fantastic Beasts 3 is now in the queue to release soon on big screens. Presently, the film is in its production phase. We all are aware that the coronavirus pandemic had a very negative impact on the entertainment industry. Hence, this upcoming film also faced a delay, and finally, the release date is out. It is a fantasy film that is directed by David Yates. Here’s everything you must know about the movie. Scroll down to have a look at the details of Fantastic Beasts 3 release date, cast, plot, and every other information.
Fantastic Beasts 3 Release Date
The official release date for the upcoming installment, i.e., Fantastic Beasts 3, is set to be in the theatres on 15th July 2022. After knowing this, you might be coming up with a question! Isn’t it a little dealing for the film to arrive? Unfortunately, the answer is Yes. It will be almost three years since The Crimes of Grindelwald had its debut. This is more than two years gap as the first two films of Fantastic Beasts were released in this period.
Why is the film facing a delay? What are the reasons behind more gaps between the previous movie and the upcoming installment? Was it only the COVID-19 pandemic that was responsible for pushing the production back? Hence, there are several other questions for which the viewers are searching answers. Initially, the filming was to start in Spring 2020. Not only this, the makers made the confirmation about the filming that is partially set in Brazil. But, officially, it began in 2020, of which the shooting location was the United Kingdom. In April 2019, Warner Bros announced that the release date for the Fantastic Beasts 3 would be someday in 2021. It is pretty surprising to know that the release date has been changed multiple times due to many issues.
Reasons For the Delay
Firstly, it was set to hit the screens on 20th November, the previous year. But sadly, it went through retardation because of the coronavirus pandemic. The members of the team were tested positive, and therefore, it affected the London production. Hence, the date for its premiering was then set to 12th November 2021. All the cameras were set to roll again in September.
Apart from this, there is another reason for the delay. Recently, the upcoming movie has marked the exit of Johnny Depp. In the first two films, he was playing the role of Gellert Grindelwald. But he has to resign as Warner Bros asked him to do it. He was to return again in Fantastic Beasts 3, but sadly, he will not be a part of it now. It is because he lost a case that stated him as a wife-beater. This fallout made the movie wait a bit longer. However, as per the latest and exclusive information, Fantastic Beasts 3 is planning to release on 15th July, the following year.
Fantastic Beasts 4 and 5: When is Premiere in theaters?
Until now, movies have no release dates. Despite this, we could expect them to drop sometime in November 2022 and in November 2024. But, it is not entirely sure. It is just an expectation. At the moment, we cannot say whether Fantastic Beasts 4 and 5 will be coming up in the future or not. Therefore, we need to wait to see if these installments will make their way ahead or not release.
What’s the Title for Fantastic Beasts 3?
As of now, it is unnamed. Hence, we can only have a guess about its title. Though the production is still ongoing, we might get to know about the title for the Fantastic Beasts 3 very soon. Previously it was in November 2017 when Fantastic Beasts: The Crimes of Grindelwald was announced.
What Would be the Story in the Third Movie?
Although there is no official storyline or synopsis, the movie will be partially set in Brazil. However, the time period that is to be shown can be before the events of Harry Potter. It will focus more on the characters. According to a statement made by Kevin Tsujihara, the second film didn’t perform the way it was expected to. Hence, extra efforts are to be added to make the upcoming movie stand on viewers’ expectations. Currently, there is a scarcity of specific details about the story.
This time JK Rowling is giving her best to write the story. For this time, Steve Kloves will be receiving the credit as a co-writer of Fantastic Beasts 3. Previously he has written seven Harry Potter movies. In addition to this, he has been a producer for the first two Fantastic Beasts movies. Overall, the fans are ready to explore the new synopsis of the forthcoming film.
Cast of the Fantastic Beasts 3
They will be many familiar actors that will be joining the cast of Fantastic Beasts 3. Eddie Redmayne will be back as Newt Scamander, and Katherine Waterston will be returning as Auror Tina Goldstein without any further changes. Also, Dan Fogler is to reprise his role as Jacob Kowalski, and Alison Sudol is making a comeback as Queenie Goldstein. In addition to this, the film will have Callum Turner and Jude Law. As David Yates is again having a seat on the director’s chair, it is most likely that the original cast will return. One of the major absences that are to be felt by everyone is of Johnny Depp. He was to appear as Dark Wizard Gellert Grindelwald.
Will it be the Final Movie?
This forthcoming film is directed by David Yates. He also led the previous films, Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them and Fantastic Beasts: The Crimes of Grindelwald, released in 2016 and 2018, respectively. However, the second movie didn’t do well as compared to the first part. Accordingly, the first one had an earning of $814 million on box office globally. In contrast, the gross total of its sequel went only up to $655 million. Hence, at this moment, it is unclear about any sequel to come up after the third movie.
You can watch first two parts on Netflix.
