Fantastic Beasts 3

YES! The release date for Fantastic Beasts 3 has finally been announced.

While this is good news, the downside is we will have to wait until November 2021 before we’re reunited with Newt Scamander and company.

The exact release date was confirmed by Warner Brothers this week and fans of the hit franchise will only be delighted.

One reason for the major delay? To ensure the third movie is just as amazing as the previous ones and we think you’ll agree there’s a lot to live up to.

Speaking about the third film, Warner Bros’ Theatrical Distribution president Ron Sanders said:

 “JK Rowling created an awe-inspiring universe that has captivated people of all ages, taking us on an extraordinary magical journey.”

“Warner Bros. is so proud to be the cinematic home of the Wizarding World and is excited about the future of the Fantastic Beasts franchise. We look forward to bringing the third chapter of the five-film series to audiences around the globe in November 2021.”

The third instalment, which doesn’t yet have a name, is expected to begin filming in 2020 as according to reports, more work is need on the script and some pre-production time too.

As fans will know, Fantastic Beasts is a prequel series for the Harry Potter films and Fantastic Beasts 2: Crimes of Grindelwald ended with a pretty crazy twist.

Only another year and a half to wait for Fantastic Beasts 3…
