Fantastic Beasts is the film project after Harry Potter (although previous in history). We are talking about one of the most important franchises in this industry, which came from the mind of its author, the writer JK Rowling. The truth is that, after two installments -and several scandals-, the third film has a confirmed title.

"Fantastic Beasts: Dumbledore's Secrets" will be the official name of the next installment starring Newt Scamander and which will aim to be one of the most impressive not only in this new saga, but also in the Harry Potter universe in general. For this reason, we decided to review everything we know about this long-awaited movie. Let's see more!

What we know about Fantastic Beasts 3

Directed again by David Yates (who was in charge of this entire saga and the last 4 Harry Potter films), the style will be similar to what we could see previously. That is, the jovial aspect of the magical universe will be combined, but with an increasingly dark tone, something that could be seen in the last installment.

The script will again be in charge of Steve Kloves, with the supervision and help of JK Rowling, which allows us to expand this story that works as a prequel much more than what we saw in the original Harry Potter films. Now, in which there will be substantial changes will be in the cast.

Last year, we had seen that Johnny Depp was fired from the movie by Warner Bros. This happened because of the accusations of violence that his ex-partner, Amber Heard, made against him. Therefore, Depp will not play the dark wizard Gellert Grindelwald, the great villain of this franchise.

In his place, there will be another actor who will take on the role of this antagonist: Mads Mikkelsen, known for playing Hannibal Lecter in the eponymous TV series. The truth is that, in the rest of the cases, the cast will be the same. Eddie Redmayne (Newt Scamander), Dan Fogler (Jacob), Jud Law (Dumbledore), Katherine Waterston (Tina), Ezra Miller (Credence) or Adison Sudol (Queenie) will be in their roles.

However, the other thing that would change could be the value that some of them had in the last movies. More specifically, we are talking about the character of Albus Dumbledore. In the previous installment we met a young version of this remembered Hogwarts headmaster. However, his role was rather secondary, as we anticipated that he would be essential in this third part.

Well, in the new movie, Dumbledore could have a leading role. Basically because he could be Newt Scamander's mentor so he can beat the villain. Recall that, in the second movie, it was revealed that Dumbledore and Grindelwald made a blood pact during adolescence, when they were great friends, that prevents the two from being able to clash.

Therefore, a battle with the participation of the future headmaster of Hogwarts is ruled out, although this does not mean that there cannot be an epic confrontation that can only be equated in the saga to what happened in Harry Potter: The Deathly Hallows (Part 2). This is even reinforced with the end of the last film, when Scamander, with the help of Niffler, managed to snatch the necklace with the blood of the oath.

In the same way, the plot has an association with the "canon" established by JK Rowling before the release of these new films. Basically, the author had indicated that the duel between both characters occurs in 1945, years before Dumbledore became headmaster of Hogwarts .

Therefore, one of the main leaks is that this tape will have a direct connection with the real events of World War II, something logical if we consider the dates . It would be the first time that a "muggle" conflict has a great relevance in the magical world, so it will be interesting to see what the adaptation will be in the film.

To watch this film, we will have to wait until April 15, 2022, the official date for its release in theaters. It should be remembered that this franchise has two more installments planned, so we should not expect a total closure of the plot. However, this third part will be key to the future of the saga, which shows the enormous interest that Harry Potter continues to have.
