The third Fantastic Beasts film has an official release date!
Warner Bros. announced the film will hit theaters on Nov. 12, 2021, with production expected to begin in spring 2020.
“We are incredibly excited about and have confidence in the Fantastic Beasts series,” said Toby Emmerich, Warner Bros. Pictures Group chairman, in a statement. “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.”
Ron Sanders, Warner Bros. president of worldwide theatrical distribution and home entertainment, added, “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.”
The plot is still under wraps but J.K. Rowling has given us a few hints:
It’s Rio da Janeiro in the 1930s. https://t.co/z7Begrrd9A

We do know that the five Fantastic Beasts movies will each be set in a different city across the world. So far we’ve had New York and Paris, and Rowling might’ve just revealed the third destination.
David Yates has also said that he will return to direct Fantastic Beasts 3 and the two remaining movies.
