The third film in the Fantastic Beasts franchise has an official title, alongside a updated release date.
The authority Harry Potter Film Twitter account released a short teaser debuting the film’s title: Fantastic Beasts: The Secrets of Dumbledore. Additionally, rather than debuting July 15, 2022, Warner Bros. has knock up its release to April 15, 2022.
The logline for Fantastic Beasts: The Secrets of Dumbledore peruses: “Professor Albus Dumbledore knows the powerful Dark wizard Gellert Grindelwald is moving to seize control of the wizarding world. Unable to stop him alone, he entrusts Magizoologist Newt Scamander to lead an intrepid team of wizards, witches and one brave Muggle baker on a dangerous mission, where they encounter old and new beasts and clash with Grindelwald’s growing legion of followers. But with the stakes so high, how long can Dumbledore remain on the sidelines?”
Phenomenal Beasts 3’s past summer 2022 date was declared in November 2020. This pushed the film out of its unique November 2021 delivery date in light of Johnny Depp leaving his job as Gellert Grindelwald following his misfortune in a slander body of evidence against The Sun newspaper. “I wish to let you know that I have been asked to resign by Warner Bros. from my role as Grindelwald in Fantastic Beasts and I have respected and agreed to that request,” Depp said in a statement.
Mads Mikkelsen was then reported to supplant Depp as Gellert Grindelwald. “Nobody’s interested in me going in there and trying to copy anything, that would be creative suicide immediately, especially when it’s been done before and masterfully,” Mikkelsen said when gotten some information about replicating Depp’s Grindelwald execution. “So everybody’s expecting us to find a different path. Having said that, we need a bridge between what he did and what I’m gonna do, so those bridges you have to find together, whether it’s a certain look, whether it’s a certain attitude in certain situations, but you have to make it your own. Anything else would be plainly just creatively stupid.”
Fabulous Beasts: The Secrets of Dumbledore shows up in theaters on April 15, 2022.
