Warner Bros. is returning to its Wizarding World before planning.
The next installment of “Fantastic Beasts”, the new title “The Secrets of Dumbledore”, will open in theaters on April 15, 2022. The third entry in the fantastic franchise was originally slated for release on July 15 next year, but the studio chose to extend its premiere by three months.
Here is the official logline: “Professor Albus Dumbledore knows that the powerful Dark Wizard Gelart Grindelwald is about to take control of the wizarding world. Unable to stop him alone, he entrusts the magician Newt Scamander to lead a wizard, a witch, and a brave Mughal baker on a dangerous mission, where they encounter old and new beasts and clash with Grindelwald’s growing followers. But with such a high price, how long can Dumbledore be on the side?
“Harry Potter” veteran David Yates is returning to direct the third movie. The prequel series কয়েক a few decades before the adventures of Harry, Ron, and Hermione-centers on the magician Newt Scamander (Eddie Redmain), who became loyal to the young Albus Dumbledore, portrayed by Jude Law in the rise of Hitler-Esk Grindelwald. .
The third “Fantastic Beasts” movie made headlines last November when Johnny Depp came out of the series, where he played the role of Dark Wizard Gelart Grindelwald, when Warner Bros. asked him to resign. Depp’s departure came shortly after news of the loss of his defamation suit against The Sun, a British tabloid that published an article in 2018 alleging that he was a “wife watchdog.”
Actor Mads Mickelsen will replace Depp as Grindelwald. Also in the cast are Katherine Waterston, Alison Suddle, Ezra Miller, Dan Fogler and Jessica Williams.
JK Rowling, who has become a polarizing figure for his unsolicited comments against transgender people, wrote the script for the first two entries in the franchise: 2016’s “Fantastic Beasts and Her to Find Them” and 2018’s “Fantastic Beasts: The Crimes of Grain.” Steve Cloves, who has acted in many original “Harry Potter” movies, is co-writing the script for the third “Fantastic Beasts” with Rowling.
