Warner is shaking up his plans for “Fantastic Beasts 3” and has just set a new release date, when the film was initially scheduled for the summer of 2022. In addition, the official title has finally been unveiled by the studio.
The Harry Potter universe has not finished enchanting us
While the saga Harry potter came to an end years ago, the universe has not been put away. The opposite would have been surprising for such a popular franchise which has already proven that it can generate huge amounts of money. This is how the extension was born Fantastic Beasts At the movie theater. The idea is to dive into events that took place before Harry Potter arrived in the wizarding world, while bringing back some famous characters. A classic process that works at the box office if we believe the cumulative score of 1.4 billion dollars by the first two opus.
Unsurprisingly, a third episode is planned. You have surely heard about it through the Johnny Depp scandal. The actor who camped the villainous Gellert Grindelwald has been disembarked from the ship because of the scandals surrounding him. Mads Mikkelsen took the place leaving it vacant, in front of David Yates’ camera.
A new release date and title for Fantastic Beasts 3
Warner Bros. gives us news of the film by announcing, first, the official title: Secrets of Dumbledore. There is no doubt that we will learn more about this major figure in the world of Harry Potter. The wizard will always be played by Jude Law and Eddie Redmayne will continue to headlining. The script will tell how Dumbledore assembles a team of wizards to stop Grindelwald in his desire to control the world. Throughout this adventure, the heroes will find tough opponents on their way. What are we going to learn about Dumbledore? It’s obviously too early to know but we can’t wait to see what the film has in store for us.
Scheduled for July 15, 2022 in American theaters, Fantastic Beasts 3 just saw its release date to be brought forward. The studio has decided to release it on April 15, 2022, three months in advance. The release being worldwide, it should happen at the same time with us, a priori April 13. Warner surely wants to avoid facing a few big chunks in the middle of summer (Black Panther: Wakanda Forever, Black adam and Indiana Jones 5 are expected in July). April seems to be a quieter month for the moment.
