Fantastic Beasts 3 release date | Films | Entertainment


Film studio Warner Bros just magicked up some absolutely wizard news earlier today. The first Fantastic Beasts and Where To Find Them movie came out in 2016 followed by the Crimes of Grindelwald in 2018. Devoted fans have had to wait twice as long for the next installment in the seven-chapter saga – but we finally have a date for Part 3: The Secrets of Dumbledore.

WHEN IS FANTASTIC BEASTS 3 OUT?

The third film in the Fantastic Beasts franchise will be released on April 15, 2022. Watch the announcement below. It was originally scheduled for November 2020 before the global pandemic halted production.

WHO STARS IN FANTASTIC BEASTS: THE SECRETS OF DUMBLEDORE?

Jude Law will return as the titular character, with Eddie Redmayne as his ally, Newt Scamander. Katherine Waterston will reprise her role as Porpentina “Tina” Goldstein, alongside Dan Fogler as Jacob Kowalski, Alison Sudol as Queenie Goldstein and Ezra Miller as Credence Barebone

FANTASTIC BEASTS 3: WILL JOHNNY DEPP RETURN AS GRINDELWALD?

No, Johnny Depp will not be back to play the main villain Gellert Grindelwald. Following the worldwide furore over his court case with ex-wife Amber Heard, he was asked to leave the project by the studio. He will be replaced by Mads Mikkelsen.

This will be the third actor playing the role across three films, after Colin Farrell played Percival Graves in the first film, later revealed to be Grindelwald in disguise.

WHAT IS FANTASTIC BEASTS 3 ABOUT?

The film will be set in Rio, China and Germany (where Grindelwald has his mountain fortress).

The title of the third film and the ending of the second make it clear the series will now turn to look at the personal life of Albus Dumbledore. We know he was the lover of Gellert Grindelwald, who also told the orphan Credence in the final moments of the sequel that he was secretly part of the Dumbledore family. 

According to Grindelwald, who can’t necessarily be trusted. Credence is really Aurelius Dumbledore. Theories are divided over whether he is the Hogwarts professor’s secret brother or even son.

FANTASTIC BEASTS THE SECRETS OF DUMBLEDORE WILL BE RELEASED ON APRIL 15, 2022
