Get ready Wizarding World fans, Fantastic Beasts is back and this one looks epic!
The long awaited third chapter of the Harry Potter spinoff series will be picking up from the major cliffhanger ending of the previous film, Fantastic Beasts: The Crimes of Grindelwald. Erza Miller’s character, Credence Barebone was revealed as Aurelius Dumbledore, the estranged brother of Albus Dumbledore (Jude Law). With Aurelius having unlocked his dreaded power as an Obscurus parasite, now under the sway of Grindelwald, the big Wizarding World War is set to begin!
By the time this movie is released, it would have been 3 and a half years since the previous one unfortunately thanks to the COVID-19 pandemic that put a pause on alot of movies. he biggest headlines were, of course, the firing of franchise star Johnny Depp, due to his offscreen legal suit with ex-wife Amber Heard. Depp has been recast as Grindelwald, with Doctor Strange star Mads Mikkelsen stepping in to play Gellert Grindelwald.
Here is the official synopsis below:
“Set in the 1930s, the story leads up to the Wizarding World’s involvement in World War II and will explore the magical communities in Bhutan, Germany and China in addition to previously established locations including Brazil, the United States and United Kingdom. With Grindelwald’s (Mads Mikkelsen) power rapidly growing, Albus Dumbledore (Jude Law) entrusts Newt Scamander (Eddie Redmayne) and his friends on a mission that will lead to a clash with Grindelwald’s army, and will lead Dumbledore to ponder how long he will stay on the sidelines in the approaching war”
