A name and release date have been announced for the next Fantastic Beasts film!

The third installment in J.K. Rowling’s Harry Potter spinoff is “Fantastic Beasts: The Secrets of Dumbledore” and it will be released on April 15th 2022.

The film will see the return of Eddie Redmayne as Magizoologist Newt Scamander and Jude Law and Albus Dumbledore.

Katherine Waterston, Alison Sudol, Ezra Miller and Dan Fogler will also star.

However, the villain Grindelwald has been recast, with Johnny Depp vacating the role following allegations of being a “wife beater” per the UK courts last November.

Danish actor Mads Mikkelsen, known for his work in “Dr Strange”, “Casino Royale” and “Hannibal”, replaces him.
