BREAKING: “Fantastic Beasts: The Secrets of Dumbledore” Hits Theaters April 15, 2022

Wands at the ready! The title of the third Fantastic Beasts movie has been revealed along with a release date that is much earlier than fans had expected.

Following on from the climactic end of the second movie, Fantastic Beasts: The Secrets of Dumbledore will be released in theaters on April 15, 2022. The release date had previously been pushed back from November 12, 2021, to July 15, 2022, but we’re glad to see that it will now make it to the silver screen three months earlier.



The plot for the movie is still very much under wraps, although Mads Mikkelsen (Gellert Grindelwald) has previously revealed that there will be an epic battle scene between Grindelwald and Newt Scamander (played by Eddie Redmayne). Other characters that are known to be returning for the third installment are Tina and Queenie Goldstein (Katherine Waterston and Alison Sudol), fan favorite Jacob Kowalski (Dan Fogler), and of course, Albus Dumbledore (Jude Law). Also returning to the cast is Ezra Miller (Credence Barebone), Claudia Kim (Nagini), Callum Turner (Theseus Scamander), Jessica Williams (Eulalie Hicks), and Poppy Corby-Tuech (Vinda Rosier).

We also know some of the new actors and characters that will be making an appearance. Oliver Masucci had announced that he would be joining the cast as Head of the International Confederation of Wizards, and Richard Coyle (known for roles in Chilling Adventures of Sabrina and Prince of Persia: The Sands of Time) will be joining the cast in an as-yet-unnamed role.

While the title of the movie is the only clue to the plot we have so far, it will not stop fans from speculating. What are the secrets of Dumbledore? Will we have a resolution for the cliffhanger at the end of Fantastic Beasts: The Crimes of Grindelwald? There are only 206 days until we find out!

I was given a copy of Philosopher's Stone in 2001, and instantly, I was hooked. Since then, my passion for Potter has been equaled only by my passion for fair access to education (and watching motorsport). A spell I wish could exist in the Muggle world is the summoning charm because this Hufflepuff is not a "particularly good finder"!
