While some Harry Potter fans are still sore that Johnny Depp has exited the Fantastic Beasts franchise, Warner Bros. has announced a new release date for the upcoming Fantastic Beasts 3 movie, just days after Depp’s departure.
Warner Bros. initially pushed off the November 2021 release date for Fantastic Beasts 3 due to Depp leaving the film. Now, the studio has given an updated release date. The next Fantastic Beasts film will now premiere on July 15, 2022—nearly a year-long delay.
The date change gives Warner Bros. ample time to recast the dark wizard, Gellert Grindelwald, who Depp played in the first two films. Fans have been speculating on social media and suspect the studio will ask Colin Farrell to return as Grindelwald’s disguised form of Percival Graves.
