Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them 3 has finally been revealed. The third film in what will be a total of five has had both its title and a release date confirmed, and we're immediately intrigued by this return to the Wizarding World.
We have, of course, seen the original Harry Potter films - that's the series that many of us naturally think of when it comes to cinematic magic. Then came the first Fantastic Beasts film - Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them - in 2016, followed by its sequel, Fantastic Beasts: The Crimes of Grindelwald. Now the third film has officially got its title - Fantastic Beasts: The Secrets of Dumbledore. Well, it's no mystery where the focus of this film is going to be, is it?
The film has also received a release date - it will be in theatres from April 15, 2022. Seven long months, then, before we get to see the final product - but of course there will be more trailers along the way.

The series stars Eddie Redmayne as Newt Scamander, who is referenced a number of times in the original Harry Potter lore as a fantastic "magizoologist". We'll also inevitably see the return of other members of the crew like Dan Fogler as Jacob Kowalski, Alison Sudol as Queenie, and Katherine Waterston, as Tina Goldstein. Additionally, the film will feature Albus Dumbledore, played by the one and only Jude Law. We're not exactly sure how much of his past we will be exploring, but it's sure to give us a lot more context to the mysterious wizard with a past the students of Hogwarts never entirely uncovered.
The release of the film in 2022 sort of coincides with the release of Hogwarts Legacy, the RPG from Avalanche games that will allow players to explore the school and become fully-fledged students themselves. We're excited for that one, too.
