Fantastic Beasts 3 now has an official title — it is referred to as Fantastic Beasts: The Secrets of Dumbledore. Additionally, Warner Bros. has determined to carry ahead the Fantastic Beasts 3 launch date by three months. Instead of July 15, 2022, the third entry in J.Okay. Rowling’s Harry Potter spin-off franchise will now open April 15, 2022 in cinemas worldwide. Set a number of years after Fantastic Beasts: The Crimes of Grindelwald, Fantastic Beasts: The Secrets of Dumbledore is ready partly in Rio de Janeiro and Berlin, with Albus Dumbledore (Jude Law) sending Newt Scamander (Eddie Redmayne) on a brand new mission.
In addition to Law and Redmayne, Fantastic Beasts: The Secrets of Dumbledore additionally stars Katherine Waterston because the Auror Tina Goldstein, Dan Fogler as WWI veteran Jacob Kowalski who’s No-Maj (non-magical), Alison Sudol as Tina’s youthful sister Queenie Goldstein, Ezra Miller because the anti-hero Credence Barebone, Callum Turner as Newt’s older brother and WWI hero Theseus Scamander, and Mads Mikkelsen because the darkish wizard villain Gellert Grindelwald (changing Johnny Depp who exited the position after shedding a libel swimsuit that described him as a “wife beater”).
As the title clearly implies, Fantastic Beasts: The Secrets of Dumbledore will little doubt discover the fallout from the ending of Fantastic Beasts: The Crimes of Grindelwald, the place Grindelwald claimed that Credence was a long-lost brother of Dumbledore — and that his authentic identify is Aurelius Dumbledore. It was one other considered one of Rowling’s egregious unfounded adjustments, up there with declaring that Dumbledore is homosexual after the actual fact (which Fantastic Beasts continues to disregard), and the casting of Claudia Kim as Nagini. Rowling has drawn backlash for all of it, although that is the least of her issues.
For Warner Bros., there’s additionally the matter of the sequence’ reception. The Crimes of Grindelwald was a essential dud — I described it as a clueless and forgettable entry — and it had the worst field workplace efficiency for any Wizarding World film. Still, the $654.9 million (about Rs. 4,832 crores) gross and the truth that it is hooked up to the profitable Harry Potter model was sufficient for the studio to proceed with the five-film Fantastic Beasts plan. Warner did push again the discharge date to give Rowling & Co. extra time to craft The Secrets of Dumbledore, which due to COVID-19 has develop into about three-and-half-years.
Fantastic Beasts: The Secrets of Dumbledore will launch April 15, 2022 in cinemas in India and around the globe.
