Warner Bros. has revealed the new title and release date for the next film in the Fantastic Beasts franchise.
The last time we ventured into the Wizarding World was in 2018’s Fantastic Beasts: The Crimes of Grindelwald, which put Johnny Depp’s dark wizard front and center. After a series of delays and casting shuffles, Warner Bros. is ready to re-introduce fans to the exploits of Newt Scamander next year. The studio has officially titled the third film in the franchise Fantastic Beasts: The Secrets of Dumbledore. Originally set to hit cinemas in mid-July 2022, the third film in the franchise will now release on April 15, 2022, just in time for Easter.
The official Wizarding World Twitter account dropped the news.
If you pay close attention to the “D” in Dumbledore, you’ll notice that the stick of the letter is actually carved out to resemble the wizard’s wand. The previous two Fantastic Beasts films have done a good job of hinting at Dumbledore’s mysterious past, so it’s great to see the mythical headmaster and wizard get the limelight in the upcoming threequel. Dumbledore is expected to aid Newt Scamander as they both try to take down Grindlewald, now played by Mads Mikkelsen.
Here is the official synopsis for Warner Bros.’ Fantastic Beasts: The Crimes of Grindelwald:
At the end of the first film, the powerful dark wizard Gellert Grindelwald was captured by MACUSA (Magical Congress of the United States of America), with the help of Newt Scamander. But, making good on his threat, Grindelwald escaped custody and has set about gathering followers, most unsuspecting of his true agenda: to raise wizards and witches up to rule over all non-magical beings.
Directed by David Yates from a script written by J. K. Rowling, the second film stars Eddie Redmayne, Katherine Waterston, Dan Fogler, Alison Sudol, Ezra Miller, Zoë Kravitz, Callum Turner, Claudia Kim, William Nadylam, Kevin Guthrie, Jude Law, and Johnny Depp.
Fantastic Beasts: The Secrets of Dumbledore is currently scheduled for an April 15, 2022 release. Stay tuned for all the latest news on the Harry Potter franchise, Warner Bros., and be sure to subscribe to Heroic Hollywood’s YouTube channel for more video content!
