'Fantastic Beasts 3' Officially Happening, Set in Brazil

'Fantastic Beasts 3' Officially Happening, Set in Brazil

After a few months of production delays, it's finally official: Magizoologists, muggles, wizards, and an assortment of other magical creatures will come together onscreen for the third installment of Fantastic Beasts.

Deadline also cited that Booksmart's Jessica Williams, who played Professor Eulalie "Lally" Hicks at Ilvermorny School of Witchcraft and Wizardry in the preceding film, Fantastic Beasts: The Crimes of Grindelwald (2018), will have a larger role in the upcoming movie. The first Fantastic Beasts film introduced us to American wizarding life in 1927 NY, the second took us to Paris, and Fantastic Beasts 3 will be visiting Rio de Janeiro, Brazil.

The final confirmation of the return of Eddie Redmayne as Newt Scamander, Jude Law as Albus Dumbledore, Johnny Depp as Gellert Grindelwald, Ezra Miller as Credence, Alison Sudol as Queenie Goldstein, Dan fogler like Jacob Kowalski and Katherine Waterston like Tina Goldstein.

It seems a little odd that the studio would wait so long to greenlight the third entry in the Harry Potter spin-off series, especially after producers announced plans for five films, but Deadline reports that production "needed more prep time given how quickly they turned around Fantastic Beasts and the Crimes of Grindelwald".

As with the first two films, the third will take us to new continents, exploring wizarding cultures across the globe. Rio de Janeiro, Brazil!

Trump was one of the first people to host a UFC event at one of his venues when White and the Fertittas began running operations. President Donald Trump entered the floor of UFC 244 to a massive crowd of cheers, with a couple of boos mixed in.

In this sense, Steve Kloves is one of the most important people in the Harry Potter Cinematic Universe (the HPCU doesn't have the same sound to it, does it?) because he has written the scripts for seven Harry Potter films.

Fantastic Beasts 3 doesn't have an official title yet, but it has a premiere date: November 12, 2021.

"Fantastic Beasts" is meant to be a five-film franchise, but the fact that the series is already starting to show signs of fatigue just two movies in has become potential cause for concern.

Further, David Yates will take care of the staging again. Let us know your thoughts in the comments!
