Ready for Rio? Preproduction Has Begun on Third "Fantastic Beasts" Film

Fantastic Beasts 3 Is Officially Moving Forward

Hopefully with the third film, J.K. Rowling has managed to make a more engaging story, and maybe we could actually have more focus on actual fantastic beasts. However, this new franchise within the Harry Potter universe continues to give benefits and now both the date and the team have been confirmed of the third installment.

Prepare: Fantastic Beasts 3 was originally slated to begin filming in July 2019, but the production needed more time to prepare.

If you haven't been keeping up, Lally Hicks is a teacher at Ilvermorny School of Witchcraft and Wizardry, the American equivalent of Hogwarts. "Fantastic Beasts" is supposed to be a 5-film franchise, but the simple fact that the collection is now beginning to clearly show indications of fatigue just two films in has become possible trigger for problem.

Building from the first films that - branching out from the Brit-centric main films - took place in New York City and Paris, respectively, the still-untitled Fantastic Beasts 3 will take place predominantly in Rio de Janeiro, Brazil.

Williams played Professor Eulalie "Lally" Hicks in Fantastic Beasts: The Crimes of Grindelwald, and J.K. Rowling has since teased there's more to come for the character, going on record in 2018 to say, "You only see a HINT of Lally in Fantastic Beasts 2". The fun world-building nods are some of the only entertaining parts of the Fantastic Beasts movies, which have disappointed critically and commercially.

In terms of cast, Eddie Redmayne (Newt Scamander), Jude Law (Albus Dumbledore), Johnny Depp (Gellert Grindelwald), Ezra Miller (Credence / Aurelius Dumbledore), Alison Sudol (Queenie Goldstein), Dan Fogler (Jacob Kowalski) and Katherine Waterston (Tina Goldstein) are all returning. Crimes of Grindelwald tanked at the box office and became the first Harry Potter film to receive a Rotten score on Rotten Tomatoes.

Returning to direct will be David Yates, who directed the first two movies, and Harry Potter creator J.K. Rowling and Steve Kloves will also take their seat again as screenplay writers, according to Deadline.

Fantastic Beasts 3 is set to open in theaters on November 12, 2021.
