Warner Bros. Pictures has announced a November 12th 2021 release date for the third film in the “Fantastic Beasts” franchise. Production on the new film is expected to begin in Spring 2020.
The release will come three years after the first sequel arrived in cinemas – the new date extends the gap between the films from two to three years in order to give the filmmakers more time to tackle the project after so much negative feedback over the previous film.
Toby Emmerich, Chairman, Warner Bros. Pictures Group, says in a prepared statement: “We are incredibly excited about and have confidence in the Fantastic Beasts series. We all believe this release date will give the filmmakers time and space to allow their artistry to truly flourish and deliver the best possible film to our fans.”
The previous films have grossed $1.47 billion at the global box office so far.
