‘Fantastic Beasts 3’ resumes production amid COVID-19

Fantastic Beasts 3: The prequel series to the major hit franchise HARRY POTTER has resumed its production. Fantastic Beasts And Where To Find Them leading actor Eddie Redmayne just confirmed that shooting for the third movie has begun.


Though the second part of the series―Crimes of Grindelwald was not received well by the critics and audience alike; Warner Bros. has decided to take the series forward by unraveling Newt Scamander and young Albus Dumbeldore’s story in five parts.


Those who have read the Harry Potter books; already know Dumbeldore’s back story and how he fought Grindelward― the greatest dark wizard before Voldemort. While the Potterheads would even know that Fantastic Beasts and where to find them was actually a textbook back in Hogwarts for the study of Magical Creatures.

Even though the movies didn’t do that well, fans are still want to and are eagerly waiting to see the Wizarding World created by J.K. Rowling brought to screen once again.

Fortunately, Fantastic Beasts 3 has resumed production, as confirmed by Eddie Redmayne who plays the pivotal role in the series―Newt Scamander.

The Oscar-winning actor told Cinemablend that the shooting has finally started in London and how it is like to film in these current times.

“It’s a whole new normal, testing frequently, masks. And I wondered, actually, whether masks would affect creativity, in some ways. Maybe that was a bit ignorant, but I just thought, as humans do we need interaction to spark from each other. What is really reassuring is that it is a different process, but it still feels like it’s fizzing and that everyone is working at the top of their game.” He said.

Of course, Fantastic Beasts is a massive production; so it would be hard to shoot in the current state. This was the reason that the film didn’t immediately start production when the UK government gave the green light for resuming production in May.

Let’s just hope the film does not face another delay that the shooting resumes smoothly.

Fantastic Beasts 3 Release Date

The movie is slated to launch on November 12, 2021. All the major cast is returning for the third film.
