Fantastic Beasts 3 | November 12, 2021

Recommended Posts

I didn't see a thread for this and this is the one thread I will actually update with casting announcements or any significant information.

 

Right now, it looks like the film has been delayed from its November 2020 spot as Warner Bros made it clear that they are working on a few things for the third film and would rather delay it than have it rushed out and have the film suffer. Rowling, who is usually a Twitter fanatic, has been almost entirely absent for nearly three months. WB confirmed that she's working hard on the script and is basically reworking it to make it more accessible to general audiences as the studio said that they need to make the film stand on its own. 

 

We do know that the film will take place in Brazil (although it's not certain whether it'll be the main city or not), and that it takes a time jump to the early 1930s. Most likely release date for this film is 2021.

Clearly I'm nervous but I think the delay is the best play here.  CoG certainly had issues (it also had some great moments), but I think the only thing that will guarantee this sees itself to five films is it crushing on RT.  The delay can give it time for that.  OW is almost guaranteed to be below CoG (if CoG couldn't match FB with the goodwill this won't either).  I think best case scenario domestically is something like 50/170, with the hope that last two films can go out with a bang.  I do think its salvageable, the WW gross was still respectable and in the end its a money maker for WB.

Delaying it a year was their only option due to WB's packed summer slate.

It's shocking how little I care about this and I was the most diehard Potter fan in my teens.

I'm guessing Warner Bros had JK rewrite the script from scratch. She claimed it was completed back in December, and shooting was scheduled for this July. Now shooting is pushed back 9ish months, and release by a year. I'm glad to see they took the Mess of Grindelwald seriously.

I don't give two shits about this and I'm still a pretty big fan of Harry Potter. Hopefully they really do make some changes after the slog that was Grindelwald

The OCD in me is wondering why not November 19. Usually these November tentpoles release on the 3rd Friday of the month.

It's a free headline when they inevitably push it back one week.
