If the reports are to be believed, the filming of ‘Fantastic Beasts 3’ should resume next month onwards. The secret to Credence’s life should be revealed soon.
When the original ‘Fantastic Beasts’ movie was announced, ‘Harry Potter’ fans were ecstatic. Their favourite wizarding world was being revived and they couldn’t be happier. For the newer generation, this was a chance to get acquainted with magic from nearly a century ago. With a brilliant cast that comprised of Eddie Redmayne, Jude Law, Johnny Depp, and more, the movie had everything going for it. And with the success of the first part, it was decided that it would be a series, with the events leading up to the first wizarding war. However, the pandemic has pulled a stopper on nearly everything, and the filming of ‘Fantastic Beasts 3’ suffered too and was stalled.
- ‘Fantastic Beasts: The Crimes of Grindelwald’ left us on a cliffhanger
- We were all waiting eagerly for the third part of ‘Fantastic Beasts’
- The filming of the third part may begin next month
But well, as JK Rowling said,
“Things we lose have a way of coming back to us in the end, if not always in the way we expect”. ‘Fantastic Beasts 3’ filming is resuming and we are spilling the details.
‘Fantastic Beasts’ and what did we see so far
The first movie introduced us to Newt Scamander’s world, and how he finds all the fantastic beasts which he accidentally lets loose in New York City. The magizoologist was brought to life by Eddie Redmayne who played the part to perfection. Assisting him are Tina, Jacob, and Queenie, played by Katherine Waterston, Dan Fogler, and Alison Sudol, respectively. The movie ends on a high note with Gellert Grindelwald revealing his true identity and being taken in as a prisoner. And that’s where the next part, ‘Fantastic Beasts: The Crimes of Grindelwald’, takes off from. The wizard is out on the terrain to create his territory and gets mighty successful at it, as he gets hold of Credence, the obscurial and troubled boy who is just looking for his family, one that can call him their own.
The highest point of the last part was the fact that Grindelwald revealed to Credence that he is Dumbledore’s brother. This is interesting, given that we know from the original Harry Potter books that Dumbledore had one brother, Aberforth, and a sister Ariana, who died young. There has been no mention of another brother. A possibility maybe that Grindelwald is bluffing to influence Credence, which will indeed be sad. If not, we will just have to wait and see what Rowling and the makers have in store for us.
And that’s why we have been waiting so eagerly for ‘Fantastic Beasts 3’ filming to start. Finally, the answers will start falling into place.

‘Fantastic Beasts 3’ filming: Camera, set, action!
The last report on the ‘Fantastic Beasts 3’ filming had come back in March, when the pandemic had started spreading hard and fast, reaching the peak. Like many other movies, FB3 too had to stall the shoot for the safety of the cast and crew. Thus, they postponed their initially decided date to start filming, i.e. March 16. Warner Bros, thus, pushed the shooting, along with that of their other venture ‘King Richard’ which stars Will Smith.
However, now a “Variety” report has come out which states that the filming of ‘Fantastic Beasts 3’ will start in September. This is a part of their original report about Robert Pattinson-starrer ‘The Batman’ which is also resuming its production in the same month.
