FANTASTIC ANIMALS – The third installment of Fantastic Beasts is due out in 2021, after postponements and film stoppages. Everything you need to know about episode 3 of the Harry Potter spin-off.
[Mis à jour le 18 octobre 2020 à 20h55] It’s been two years since the last Fantastic Beasts was released. In 2018, The Crimes of Grindelwald, the second installment of the franchise, received a mixed reception from fans of the Harry Potter universe. In response to this, Warner Bros decided to take their time to release the third episode, so the storyline could be picked up. This additional preparatory work has resulted in a postponement of the film’s release, initially scheduled for November 2020. For now, Fantastic Beasts 3 is due out on November 12, 2021 in the United States, and probably around that date in France.
If the preparation of Fantastic Beasts 3 took longer and suffered a six-month hiatus due to the global health crisis, filming did indeed begin last September. It is Eddie Redmayne, the interpreter of Norbert Dragonneau, who confirmed it in an interview with Cinema Blend. The latter also described the health standards to which the actors must now submit: “It’s a whole new process, a whole new standard. You have to test yourself frequently, wear masks. […] What is reassuring is that although the process is different, you still have the feeling that this saga is thrilling and that everyone is working to the best of their ability. “
For now, the plot of Fantastic Beasts 3 remains very mysterious. It would seem from several clues shared by JK Rowling and the cast that the plot should take place in Brazil, in the 1930s. It also seems very likely that Newt Dragonneau and Albus Dumbledore (Jude Law) will work together to stop the schemes of Grindelwald (Johnny Depp) and Belief (Ezra Miller). We will probably know more within a year.

Synopsis – Third installment of the Harry Potter spin-off, Fantastic Beasts 3 follows the adventures of Newt Dragonneau. The plot is set to take place in Brazil, in the 1930s.
The release of Fantastic Beasts 3 has seen some turbulence. Initially scheduled for a release on November 20, 2020, the film’s release is finally postponed because the film requires more preparation and work, announces actor Dan Fogler in an interview. The Pottermore site announced in April 2019 that this third episode should finally be released on November 12, 2021.
Interpreter of Gellert Grindelwald, the main antagonist, in the first two episodes of Fantastic Beasts, Johnny Depp could not have appeared in the cast of the third installment. Indeed, the presence in the casting of the actor accused of violence against his ex-wife Amber Heard, tarnishes the reputation of the studio. So much so that Warner considered in April 2019 to dismiss it for the sequel to Fantastic Beasts. According to the Page Six site, “Senior women in the studio are very concerned about working with Depp and the message it sends to the public.” However, the presence of Johnny Depp in the casting of the film was finally confirmed by several sources a few months later.
