Today Warner Bros. Pictures announced the official release date for Fantastic Beasts 3 — and it’s definitely not 2020!

The release date, November 12, 2021, was announced today by today by Ron Sanders, President, Worldwide Theatrical Distribution and Home Entertainment, who said:

“J.K. Rowling created an awe-inspiring universe that has captivated people of all ages, taking us on an extraordinary magical journey. Warner Bros. is so proud to be the cinematic home of the Wizarding World and is excited about the future of the ‘Fantastic Beasts’ franchise. We look forward to bringing the third chapter of the five-film series to audiences around the globe in November 2021.”

Production on the new film is expected to begin in Spring 2020, almost a year later than previously reported – does that spell trouble for the series?

“We are incredibly excited about and have confidence in the ‘Fantastic Beasts’ series,” Toby Emmerich, Chairman, Warner Bros. Pictures Group, stated. “We all believe this release date will give the filmmakers time and space to allow their artistry to truly flourish and deliver the best possible film to our fans.”

We’ll keep you updated on future progress! For now, we’ll have to get ourselves ready for Wizards Unite and a new Universal Orlando ride!
