The third Fantastic Beasts movie has officially been green-lit by Warner Bros, and we have our first details about the series’ threequel.
Deadline is reporting that production on the film will kick off in Spring 2020, and features the entire cast returning once again for the third outing in the Harry Potter prequel series.
This includes Eddie Redmayne as Newt Scamander, Jude Law as Albus Dumbledore, Johnny Depp as Gellert Grindelwald, Ezra Miller as Credence / Aurelius Dumbledore, Alison Sudol as Queenie Goldstein, Dan Fogler as Jacob Kowalski and Katherine Waterston as Tina Goldstein.
The globe-trotting franchise will continue that tradition, as Fantastic Beasts 3 is set to take place in Rio de Janeiro, Brazil. David Yates returns to the directors chair, and the screenplay will be written by J.K. Rowling and Steve Kloves.
With Fantastic Beasts: The Crimes of Grindelwald marking a franchise low for the Wizarding World, both critically and financially, it is not surprising to see Harry Potter film scribe Steve Kloves return to the franchise he helped build. Kloves wrote every single Harry Potter film except for the fifth entry, Order of the Phoenix.
Fantastic Beasts 3 flies into theatres on Nov. 12, 2021.
