The third Fantastic Beasts movie is coming out sooner than expected and finally has a name. The film, “The Secrets of Dumbledore,” will now come out in April 2022.
In the next movie in the Fantastic Beasts series, Grindelwald was played by Mads Mikkelson instead of Johnny Depp. Eddie Redmayne will play Newt Scamander, and Jude Law will play Albus Dumbledore. The rest of the cast will also be back.
The first movie came out in 2016, and the second movie, Crimes of Grindelwald, came out in 2018. In the Harry Potter world, the franchise tells the stories of Newt and his magical friends many years before the Boy Who Lived found out he was a wizard.
The spinoffs have done well, making nearly $1.5 billion at the box office worldwide. And they've shown that there's more to the Harry Potter world than just the movies based on the books. Here is everything we know about Fantastic Beasts 3: The Secrets of Dumbledore.
The Story and Events of Fantastic Beasts 3
Not much is known about the plot of Fantastic Beasts 3, but actor Dan Fogler said in an interview that some movies take place in Brazil. He also hinted that it occurred in 1939, before World War II.
The first movie took place in New York in 1926, and most of the second movie took place in Paris in 1927. If Fantastic Beasts 3 is set in 1939, that's a big jump. But the series needs to get to 1945, the year of the famous fight between Grindelwald and Dumbledore.
At the end of “The Crimes of Grindelwald,” the dark wizard used the fear of a world war to get more people to join his cause. Queen and Credence are two of these people who follow him (for different reasons).
One of Newt's Niffler friends stole the blood pact between Dumbledore and Grindelwald, which worsened things. Fantastic Beasts 3 could build on this to show that Grindelwald has gotten a lot of power in the last five or six years and has made people so scared that it almost led to World War II.
He might have helped Hitler and the Nazis get power. In the meantime, Newt and his friends may be looking for the blood pact worldwide so that Dumbledore can be freed from it and eventually fight Grindelwald.
