Fantastic Beasts 3: Release Date, Plot, Cast, and More

After Gellert Grindelwald escapes, and our hero Newt Scamander is at his lowest, we resume our quest for finding Fantastic Beasts in this Harry Potter Spinoff

When The Deathly Hallows wrapped up so many years ago, it felt like the end of an era, but the Harry Potter Wizarding World was just getting started. When Fantastic Beasts released and we met Newt Scamander, we were introduced to a whole different era of the world we grew up with and learned to love. Unfortunately, the sequel to the film, Crimes of Grindelwald, wasn't as large a hit as the studio expected, putting the fate of the next three films in the purported series in a bit of a bind. However, Warner Bros. seems to have a lot of faith in the movie and the setting. As a studio that has managed to turn around bad showings before, they may do just that with the next three films in the series.

Meet The Cast of Fantastic Beasts 3

Fantastic Beasts Cast

Eddie Redmayne reprises his role as Newt Scamander, the intrepid wildlife researcher who finds himself embroiled in a plot involving the most dangerous wizards in the world. Jude Law also makes a return as a young Dumbledore, alongside Katherine Waterston (Tina Goldstein) and Dan Fogler (Jacob Kowalski). Johnny Depp has shrugged off his personal and legal woes to return as the villain Gellert Grindelwald. Additionally, we'll see Alison Sudol return to her role as Queenie Goldstein and Ezra Miller, making an entrance as Credence Barebone (or maybe Aurelius Dumbledore?). Callum Turner (Theseus Scamander) will also be returning, but the actor has admitted that he hasn't seen the script and has no idea what's going on just yet.

What Should We Expect Plotwise from Fantastic Beasts 3?

There are scarce few details about the plot (some members of the cast have yet to see it, for instance). Despite this, there has been a bit of speculation about what we can expect in this upcoming release. JK Rowling let slip a hint that the new movie will be set in 1930's Brazil, specifically Rio de Janeiro. Rowling had completed the script for the third movie in December of 2018, so she's either letting fans into a little bit of a secret or is intentionally misdirecting us. From what we know about Joanne, it could be either or at this point.

Over the series of five films, Rowling stated that they would cover nineteen years. However, one of the significant things lacking from Crimes of Grindelwald was that there was scarcely any time spent at Hogwarts. Box Office analyst Jeff Bock suggests this might give the third film an edge over the second one. Whether we get to see the fourth or fifth film in the franchise comes down to whether the third one manages to reverse the tide of poor attendance. Based on speculation and some well-timed hints by Rowling, the conclusion of the series will be when Dumbledore defeats Grindelwald in 1945 to attain The Elder Wand. Only time will tell if we get to that point.

The nineteen-year window also is crucial to fans of the original Harry Potter series. During this time, Voldemort will be born and go to school at Hogwarts. He will also spend time creating the first of his Horcruxes, the same ones that Harry has to dispose of in the original series. What's also exciting is that these movies are written entirely out of whole cloth by Rowling. There were never any books published that outline the story and so fans have no idea what to expect. It's both exciting and scary at the same time.

When Can We Expect Fantastic Beasts 3?

The release cycle for the series has been one every two years. With this in mind, we expect to see Fantastic Beasts 3 make an appearance at cinemas on November 20th, 2020.
