Fantastic Beasts 3 Release Date Set for July 2022

-

It’s only been a few days since Johnny Depp’s departure from the franchise, but we now know the official Fantastic Beasts 3 release date.

Warner Bros. Pictures announced today the studio has set the Fantastic Beasts 3 release date for July 15, 2022, which is just a week after Marvel Studios is releasing Captain Marvel 2.

Filming for the third installment was originally scheduled to begin on March 16, 2020, but it was delayed due to the current health crisis. Production then commenced in September with a release date set for November 12, 2021.

With the Johnny Depp news, the studio naturally is going to need more time to recast the role of Grindelwald and perhaps even rewrite, so the new Fantastic Beasts 3 release date will give them more time.

Many of the characters you know and love from the first two Fantastic Beasts films will be back for the next adventure in a cast led by Eddie Redmayne as Newt Scamander and Jude Law as Albus Dumbledore.

The are joined by Ezra Miller (Credence/Aurelius Dumbledore), Alison Sudol (Queenie Goldstein), Dan Fogler (Jacob Kowalski) and Katherine Waterston (Tina Goldstein).

Comedian and actor Jessica Williams, who was featured briefly in Fantastic Beasts: The Crimes of Grindelwald, will have a bigger role in the third movie. Her character, Professor Eulalie ‘Lally’ Hicks, is a teacher at Ilvermorny School of Witchcraft and Wizardry, the American equivalent of Hogwarts.

The film will once again be directed by David Yates and will reunite producers David Heyman, J.K. Rowling, Steve Kloves, Lionel Wigram and Tim Lewis, along with executive producers Neil Blair, Danny Cohen, Josh Berger and Courtenay Valenti.

The screenplay will be written by J.K. Rowling and Steve Kloves.

As with the first two films, the third will take us to new continents, exploring wizarding cultures across the globe. The first Fantastic Beasts film introduced us to American wizarding life in 1927 New York, the second took us to Paris, and Fantastic Beasts 3 will be visiting Rio de Janeiro, Brazil.

Released in 2016, Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them grossed $814 million worldwide, while the 2018 sequel Fantastic Beasts: The Crimes of Grindelwald brought in $654.9 million globally.
