The next film in the Fantastic Beasts series finally has a release date and it cannot come soon enough. Warner Bros. Pictures has announced the third of five films will hit theaters Nov. 12, 2021.
Eddie Redmayne will be reprising his role as Newt Scamander as he takes on the evil Grindelwald and other dark wizards. Filming for the film, which will be released a year later than the prior two films, is set to start next spring.

Warner Bros. has not released any further details regading the film’s plot but we can assume it will pick up where Fantastic Beasts: The Crimes of Grindelwald left off. If you recall, the story ended in a fantastical battle between good and evil, with plenty of the “good guys” apparating off into the sunset with Grindelwald.
In the two-and-a-half years until we finally get to the view the film, we can pontificate on plenty of important questions. Will we finally get to see what makes current do-gooder Nagini turn bad? Will Newt and Tina finally their love for each other at last?
Only time will tell.
