Fantastic Beasts and Where to find them is a 2016 fantasy film directed by David Yates. It is a joint British and American production and spins off and prequel to the Harry Potter film series.
It is produced and written by J.K Rowling, in her screenwriting debut, inspired by her 2001 guide book of the same name. The film features an ensemble cast of talented stars including Eddie Redmayne, Katherine Waterston, Dan Fogler, Alison Sudol, Ezra Miller, Callum Turner, Claudia Kim, Jude Law, and Jonny Depp.
The plot is quite interesting, it follows Newt Scamander and Albus Dumbledore as they attempt to take down the dark wizard Gellert Grindelwald while facing new threats in a more divided wizarding world.
The movie’s sequel came out in 2018, Fantastic Beasts: The crimes of Grindelwald. This sequel turned out to be somewhat of a disappointment for the audience with its overtly confusing plot.
However, some fans still enjoyed it and couldn’t wait for the third party. Perhaps these Fantastic Beasts fans and potter heads can now rejoice as Wizarding World .com, a new official resource for everything Harry potter, announced that the filming of Fantastic Beasts 3, is set to begin in spring of 2020.
Thus Warner Bros too announced that the third part of the movie will be released on November 12th, 2021. Surprisingly the movie was co-written by 7 times Harry Potter screenwriter Steve Kloves. He had served as a producer on the first two Fantastic Beasts movies but the third part will be his first time receiving a co-writing credit.
In a recent interview, actor Dan Fogler gave us some information about this upcoming sequel. He mentioned that the movie release had been delayed due to its size.
He went so far as to call the Fantastic Beasts 3 “bigger than” the first two movies combined. Moreover, the film is speculated to feature more of Hogwarts, Dumbledore and ” breadcrumbs” for diehard fans.
Dumbledore is anticipated to try to destroy the Blood Pact, Jacob will try to save Queenie from making the wrong choices and the others will try to get Credence on their side.
