'Fantastic Beasts 3' Gets Fall 2021 Release Date
The "Fantastic Beasts" of the Wizarding World of Harry Potter will be back in 2021.
Warner Bros. announced a release date for "Fantastic Beasts 3," the third installment in the "Harry Potter" spinoff series. It will hit theaters November 12, 2021.
Production on the movie, which stars Eddie Redmayne as Newt Scamander, will begin in spring 2020. Potter-verse creator J.K. Rowling will write the screenplay. David Yates, who helmed the first two installments, is attached to direct again.
Its predecessor in the franchise, “Fantastic Beasts: The Crimes of Grindelwald,” introduced Jude Law as a younger Professor Albus Dumbledore and Johnny Depp as the dark wizard Gellert Grindelwald. It opened last November and earned $653 million worldwide, despite receiving mixed reviews.
The "Fantastic Beasts" franchise is intended to run for five films.
