Production of Fantastic Beasts 3 to commence in 2020
The still-untitled third instalment of the Fantastic Beasts franchise is scheduled for release on November 12, 2021
The highly-anticipated third part of the spin-off from the Harry Potter-franchise, Fantastic Beasts 3, will finally begin production in early 2020.
Dan Fogler, who appeared in the first two films as Jacob Kowalski confirmed that although they have not commenced production yet, it will be happening really soon, thanks to author JK Rowling.
“We haven’t started filming yet. We start in February,” Fogler announced at a recent event. “Last we heard, JK has been writing furiously, everyone was really happy with what she submitted, and we’re all just waiting for the new script. And that’s where we’re at.”
Incidentally, Fogler's co-star Eddie Redmayne had previously stated that filming for the the third instalment of Fantastic Beasts was supposed to begin in early 2020. However, it's important to note that Redmayne mentioned that Rowling was still working on the script back in September. Fogler's update confirms that the screenplay is close to completion and the third Fantastic Beasts movie will go into production as promised.
While the premise of Fantastic Beasts 3 is still a mystery, there are speculations that the third movie will focus on Ezra Miller's Credence Barebone now that he is under the influence of Gellert Grindelwald (Johnny Depp) and is aware of his true identity. In addition to that, it looks like Albus Dumbledore (Jude Law) is ready to wage war against Grindelwald since he has a secret weapon.
The still-untitled film is scheduled for release on November 12, 2021.
