Amidst these various criticisms, though, the film series is still moving forward as initially planned with Harry Potter film alums David Yates, David Heyman, Steve Kloves, and Rowling herself all contributing. If all goes according to plan, Fantastic Beasts 3 will be in theaters November 2021.
Warner Bros. is resuming production on some of their blockbuster movies after all filming was delayed due to the coronavirus pandemic
Fantastic Beasts 3 was scheduled to begin filming in March 2020, but due to the coronavirus pandemic, Warner Bros. postponed production on all projects. According to Variety, Warner Bros. is resuming production on a handful of their blockbuster films, including The Matrix 4 and The Batman. In September, Fantastic Beasts 3 is expected to restart the filming process.
Warner Bros. had the green light to resume production in June but decided to err on the side of caution and wait it out a little longer. Filming was also initially intended for Rio de Janeiro, Brazil, but will reportedly be taking place in the U.K. instead.
