Set several years after the events of The Crimes of Grindelwald, it follows Albus Dumbledore tasking Newt Scamander and his allies with a mission that takes them into the heart of dark wizard Gellert Grindelwald’s army.
Principal photography was set to begin in early 2020, but was postponed due to the COVID-19 pandemic; filming commenced in September 2020. Following the pandemic setbacks and the re-casting of Johnny Depp with Mikkelsen, the film’s release was pushed back to 15 July 2022, before being eventually set to 8 April 2022 in the United Kingdom and 15 April 2022 in the United States. Two more Fantastic Beasts films are in development.
Professor Albus Dumbledore knows the powerful, dark wizard Gellert Grindelwald is moving to seize control of the wizarding world. Unable to stop him alone, he entrusts magizoologist Newt Scamander to lead an intrepid team of wizards and witches. They soon encounter an array of old and new beasts as they clash with Grindelwald’s growing legion of followers.
