We have some bad news for you fellow Potter fans…the third installment of the Fantastic Beasts franchise has officially been pushed back.
Near the end of 2018, Fantastic Beasts: The Crimes Of Grindelwald hit theaters, and while we here at Fiction’s Mistress absolutely adored it, it received mixed reviews and opinions from fans. From the Johnny Depp controversy to the fact that the film did mess with the known Potter timeline, there were a few things that this film had to fight against. Of course, that didn’t stop it from being a wild success in many of our eyes.
However, for the third installment, which will undoubtedly see more of Grindelwald and his past with Dumbledore, the team wants to make sure they get it just right. And Warner Brothers is more than happy to give Rowling the time she needs to perfect her script.
But will this new production date conflict with one of the stars? As we know, Ezra Miller, who plays Credence Barebone, is set to star in his own film as DC’s the Flash, a film that was also postponed as to not conflict with his Fantastic Beasts schedule. Whether that will now be pushed back again or perhaps start shooting earlier is as of yet unclear. But as for Fantastic Beasts, we’re glad they’re taking the time they need to perfect the plot. We have total faith that it will be well worth the wait!
Fantastic Beasts: The Crimes Of Grindelwald Will Be Available On DVD And Blu-Ray This March.
