What will become of Fantastic Beasts? To give a brief preview on the future of the franchise was Eddie Redmaynewhich he interprets Newt Scamander since the first movie. So far the series set in the universe of Harry Potter brought three adaptations to theaters. After Fantastic beasts and where to find them released in 2016, it was the turn of Fantastic Beasts – The Crimes of Grindelwald in 2018 and finally Dumbledore’s Secrets in 2022.

Fantastic Beasts, the future of the franchise: the words of Eddie Redmayne on the fourth film
Not much has passed since the release of the third chapter of Fantastic Beasts at the cinema, but when a fourth film? Eddie Redmayne commented on the possibility and the future of the saga. The plot is inspired by the imagination of JK Rowling, pen that is behind the great success of Harry Potter. At the moment, however, the update released by the lead actor is somewhat disappointing. In fact, Redmayne said he doesn’t know the status of the film or if it will ever be made. To the microphones of NMEhe has declared:
At the moment there is nothing that I am aware of. So, as far as I know, the project has not been presented on the discussion table.
While Dumbledore’s Secret helped close a circle, it did leave a door open in the finale like the previous films, thus allowing for a fourth film to be made. At the moment, however, everything seems to be silent and no one has wanted to say too much about announcing the creation of a fourth chapter of the saga. The Harry Potter universe, based on Rowling’s novels of the same name, has allowed cinema to focus on eight films. It is also true that, despite the main saga, Fantastic Beasts has not taken off perfectly at the box office. Only the first film, as reported ScreenRant, shone in terms of box office, while the next two sequels earned a different reaction from the public. It’s also true that Harry Potter’s legacy is precious and that’s why a fourth film could still be made. We will have to wait to find out more.
