Fantastic Beasts: The Secrets of Dumbledore (2022, D: Yates)

Warner Bros. is pushing back the production start date of its third “Fantastic Beasts” movie several months from July to the late fall, a spokesperson said Friday.

Actors have been notified about the change in dates. The untitled third “Fantastic Beasts” movie has not yet set a release date. “Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them” was released on Nov. 18, 2016, and “Fantastic Beasts: The Crimes of Gindelwald ” came out on Nov. 16, 2018. It’s been assumed that the studio would release the next movie in November, 2020, but the delay in starting production may preclude that from happening.

David Yates is set to direct the third movie with David Heyman, Steve Kloves, Lionel Wigram, and J.K. Rowling producing. The two “Fantastic Beasts” have starred Eddie Redmayne as Newt Scamander, who deals with secret wizard communities during the 1920s. Katherine Waterston, Alison Sudol, Ezra Miller, and Dan Fogler have also starred. Jude Law starred as Albus Dumbledore in the second film, as did Johnny Depp as the villain Grindelwald.

Rowling created the franchise as a spinoff and prequel to the eight-film Harry Potter franchise, which is now referred to as the Wizarding Universe. “Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them” grossed $814 million worldwide and “Fantastic Beasts: The Crimes of Gindelwald ” pulled in nearly $650 million.

Rowling announced in 2016 that Fantastic Beasts would be a five-film franchise but did not give any details about when the third, fourth, and fifth films would be released. The news about the third film’s production delay was first reported by Deadline Hollywood.

It might be time to bring in a new director.

Ugh, why did they hire Yates again? This is a series that really needs new blood directing it.

After the last one, it is clear that Rowling should not be writing these on her own.

Wonder if they are going to reconfigure it to wrap the series up in 3 films rather than 5. I haven't seen the second but heard it was mostly filler, so it might not be hard to do.

This seemed like a good idea for a series; a shame that it hasn't panned out.

He was hired for all 5 apparently. If they actually make that many.

They'd be better off doing that. They're walking into Divergent territory.

This is the bigger problem than having Yates back as director. I've liked pretty much everything he's done with the HP movies.

Originally, I did make comments to the extent that it is time to replace Yates. I do think the series would benefit from new blood. But he isn't the overall problem. The problem is Rowling doesn't know how to write a good screenplay.

I think the Harry Potter films work best in conjunction with the books. The films can be rather confusing if one hasn’t read the books, as they give more context as to what’s being shown onscreen. The longer books like GOF, OOTP, HBP, and DH suffer from this, where a lot of plot points are removed or glossed over in the films.

The Fantastic Beasts films feel like adaptions of non-existant novels, and not actual films.

Warner Bros. Pictures has announced the release date for the third Fantastic Beasts film on Nov. 12, 2021. The announcement was made today by Ron Sanders, President, Worldwide Theatrical Distribution and Home Entertainment.

Production on the new film is expected to begin in Spring 2020.

“J.K. 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.” said Sanders.

“We are incredibly excited about and have confidence in the Fantastic Beasts series,” Toby Emmerich, Chairman, Warner Bros. Pictures Group, stated. “We all believe this release date will give the filmmakers time and space to allow their artistry to truly flourish and deliver the best possible film to our fans.”

To date, both Fantastic Beasts movies have grossed $1.47B at the global box office. The series was inspired by the text book which Harry Potter carries at Hogwarts, by Newt Scamander. The films follow Newt during the early 20th century in New York and London as he navigates the world’s secret community of witches and wizards.

Three years between movies? Shouldn't they be cranking these out as quickly as possible? It seems like interest isn't high enough in these movies to sustain a 3 year gap, especially if they plan 2 more after the next one. 2 years seems like the maximum time they should allow between installments.

Thankfully, it seems they are bringing back Steve Kloves to work with Rowling.

EXCLUSIVE: Warner Bros. has greenlit the third Fantastic Beasts movie in the Harry Potter spinoff series with production starting spring 2020. While the regular cast is returning, we hear that comedian and actor Jessica Williams, who was featured briefly in part 2’s Fantastic Beasts: The Crimes of Grindelwald, will have a bigger role this time around with her character, Professor Eulalie “Lally” Hicks, a teacher at Ilvermorny School of Witchcraft and Wizardry, the American equivalent of Hogwarts.

Set to return are Eddie Redmayne as Newt Scamander, Jude Law as Albus Dumbledore and Johnny Depp as Gellert Grindelwald along with Ezra Miller (Credence / Aurelius Dumbledore), Alison Sudol (Queenie Goldstein), Dan Fogler (Jacob Kowalski) and Katherine Waterston (Tina Goldstein).

David Yates is directing reteaming with producers David Heyman, J.K. Rowling, Steve Kloves, Lionel Wigram and Tim Lewis, along with executive producers Neil Blair, Danny Cohen, Josh Berger and Courtenay Valenti. The screenplay will be written by J.K. Rowling and Steve Kloves.

As with the first two films, the third will take place on new continents, exploring wizarding cultures across the globe. The first Fantastic Beasts film was set in 1927 NYC, the second in Paris and the third film will be set in Rio de Janeiro, Brazil.

Original Fantastic Beasts 3 was to shoot in July 2019, then fall, but the production needed more prep time given how quickly they turned around part Fantastic Beasts and the Crimes of Grindelwald. Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them and Crimes of Grindelwald together made $1.47 billion at the global box office.

Pic opens on Nov. 12, 2021.

Given the muted reaction to the last one, and production being shut down due to the virus, and JKR's reputation taking a beating one wonders if this film is DOA now.

These still bank heavily and has a massive HP fan base, so very unlikely recent events will sink this franchise. Anticipate all 5 movies to be made.

I think that even the originally planned one film every two years wasn't fast enough for these movies. They should have been pumping out one a year, or at least every 1.5 years. The kids that are into it will likely age out by the time the fifth film is released.

I think the fanbase for the "Wizarding World" is mostly adult at this point.

All of the kids who grew up on Harry Potter as the books were being released are now in their 20s and 30s.

I'm sure they're still picking up a few new kids, but even at the height of Pottermania there were a lot of adult fans.

Well, my interest in seeing another of these films just went to nil. His performance in the second film was one of the very few bright spots.

What's incredibly stupid is that WB knew the allegations about Depp before they cast him, and those allegations have now been called significantly in doubt, so what the hell is so much worse about Depp today than it was when they cast him?

This new development is again making people question why Amber Heard hasn't been kicked off the next Aquaman film...

Sadly, seems like a double standard. Make no mistake, they both seem to be horrible humans.

The best option would be to go back to Colin Farrell but he's likely booked for awhile. There’s a lot of HBO Max potential with the Potter universe still. A proper HP sequel series is still a ways off I'd imagine.

I wonder how many people won't watch FB3 because WB shitcanned Depp vs. the people who wouldn't watch it because WB kept him in the role.

Probably none. These aren't the kinds of movies you go see just because someone like Johnny Depp is in them.

They could probably slip Charlie Hunnam into the role of Grindelwald without anybody noticing.
