Warner Bros. pauses the filming of ‘Fantastic Beasts 3’ after having a crew member test positive due to an ongoing pandemic.
At Warner Bros Studios in Leavesden, Hertfordshire, the Harry Potter spin-off, starring Eddie Redmayne and Jude Law, has been filming. But now the filming had been paused by the producers due to a coronavirus test being positive in the crew. The team member who has tested positive hasn’t been announced yet so no one knows the name.
Warner Bros Pictures spokeswoman said: “The diagnosis was confirmed as a result of required and ongoing testing that all production employees receive, and the team member is currently in isolation. Out of an abundance of caution, the movie paused production and will be back up in accordance with safety guidelines.”
When will ‘Fantastic Beasts 3’ release?
The current release date for the movie is being said to be on July 15, 2022. If there happen to be further delays due to the pandemic then producers will surely make an announcement.
COVID-19 delays have the filming still in its early stages, so it’s probably a little too soon to expect a full trailer. The first Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them teaser debuted in December 2015.
What is ‘Fantastic Beasts 3’ about?
Very little is known about the plot of this film. J. K. Rowling has commented, via her Twitter account, that we will see the “true glory” of Ilvermorny Professor Eulalie Hicks.
“The second film didn’t perform as well as the first, but I think we know what we need to do to get the third film hopefully even better than the first one,” Warner Bros CEO Kevin Tsujihara admitted to the Los Angeles Times in February 2019. “And J.K. Rowling is really working hard now on that third script, and we’re going to get it right. She has an incredible vision of where she wants to go with this that is incredibly exciting.”
Here is a trailer of the second movie for you!
