Warner Bros. Pictures has finally revealed the official release date for the third instalment of the Fantastic Beasts series, The Secrets of Dumbledore, which will be released three months early.
Newt Scamander and the gang are set to return in cinemas globally 15th April 2022, with the studio also unveiling a tease of the plot and logo:
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, witches and one brave Muggle baker on a dangerous mission, where they encounter old and new beasts and clash with Grindelwald’s growing legion of followers. But with the stakes so high, how long can Dumbledore remain on the sidelines?
Many of the characters from the first two Fantastic Beasts films will return, including Eddie Redmayne as Newt Scamander and Jude Law as Albus Dumbledore along with Ezra Miller (Credence/Aurelius Dumbledore), Alison Sudol (Queenie Goldstein), Dan Fogler (Jacob Kowalski) and Katherine Waterston (Tina Goldstein). Comedian and actor Jessica Williams, who had a brief appearance in Fantastic Beasts: The Crimes of Grindelwald, is set to return as Ilvermorny professor Eulalie ‘Lally’ Hicks, while Mads Mikkelsen will debut as Gellert Grindelwald.
The film will once again be directed by David Yates and will reunite producers David Heyman, J.K. Rowling, Steve Kloves, Lionel Wigram and Tim Lewis, along with executive producers Neil Blair, Danny Cohen, Josh Berger and Courtenay Valenti. The screenplay is written by J.K. Rowling and Steve Kloves.
