Muggles will have to wait a while before returning to the Wizarding World of Harry Potter.
Fantastic Beasts 3 has officially scheduled a November 2021 release date. Production is expected to begin in spring of 2020.
In 2016, the franchise started with a spin-off/prequel Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them. This kicked off a five-movie series detailing the conflict against the dark wizard Grindelwald.
“We are incredibly excited about and have confidence in the ‘Fantastic Beasts’ series,” said Toby Emmerich, Warner Bros. Pictures Group chairman said in a statement. “We all believe this release date will give the filmmakers time and space to allow their artistry to truly flourish and deliver the best possible film to our fans.”
Ron Sanders, Warner Bros. president of worldwide theatrical distribution and home entertainment, added, “J.K. Rowling created an awe-inspiring universe that has captivated people of all ages, taking us on an extraordinary magical journey. Warner Bros is proud to be the cinematic home of the Wizarding World. And is excited about the future of the ‘Fantastic Beasts’ franchise. We look forward to bringing the third chapter of the five-film series to audiences around the globe in November 2021.”
